Azithromycin

Azithromycin as an azalide macrolid antibiotic works very well in treating a wide variety of bacterial infections. Being a derivative of erythromycin, it works very well against numerous kinds of bacteria such as Haemophilus influenza, Escherichia coli, Eikenella corrodens, and Chlamydia pneumonia among others. Therefore it works very well for treating bacterial infections such as infections of the urinary tract, ears, respiratory tract, skin, as well as bacterial infections which are sexually transmitted.
