Powder for preparation of suspension for oral administration
Azitrus is a broad-spectrum antibiotic of the macrolide group, azalide. It acts bacteriostatically. By binding to the 50S subunit of the ribosome, it inhibits protein synthesis and slows the growth and reproduction of bacteria. In high concentrations it has a bactericidal effect. It acts on extra- and intracellular pathogens. Active against gram-positive microorganisms: Streptococcus spp. (groups C, F, and G, except for those resistant to erythromycin), Streptococcus pneumoniae, Streptococcus pyogenes, Streptococcus agalactiae, Streptococcus viridans, Staphylococcus epidermidis, Staphylococcus aureus gram-negative bacteria, Haemophilus influenzaeradelisella pheradelisella pheradellis peritussis, Bordellis paraisella ducreyi, Campylobacter jejuni, Neisseria gonorrhoeae and Gardnerella vaginalis of some anaerobic microorganisms: Bacteroides bivius, Clostridium perfringens, Peptostreptococcus spp., as well as intracellular pathogens, Chlamydia trachomatis um plyoclamia pompoclamidae, complex Chlamydium pompoclamida pompoclamidae, Chlamydia pylomidium pylomidium complex, Borrelia burgdoferi. Azithromycin is active against gram-positive bacteria that are resistant to erythromycin.

infections of the lower respiratory tract (. including caused by atypical causative agents of pneumonia, exacerbation of chronic pneumonia, bronchitis)

With the simultaneous use of antacids (aluminum and magnesium), ethanol and food slow down and reduce the absorption of azithromycin. With the combined use of azithromycin in therapeutic doses with warfarin, no change in prothrombin time was noted, however, given that the interaction of macrolides with warfarin may increase the anticoagulant effect, when prescribing this combination, patients need careful monitoring of prothrombin time. With simultaneous use, the concentration of digoxin in the blood plasma increases. With simultaneous use, the toxic effect (vasospasm, dysesthesia) of ergotamine and dihydroergotamine is enhanced.
