What is Biaxin used to treat?
Biaxin, with the generic name clarithromycin, is an oral antibiotic used to treat mild to moderate infections due to designated susceptible bacteria in acute bacterial exacerbation of chronic bronchitis, acute maxillary sinusitis, community-acquired pneumonia, pharyngitis, tonsillitis, skin infections, acute otitis media, disseminated mycobacterial infections, and H. Pylori infections. Biaxin is only indicated for bacterial infections and will not work for viral infections.
This macrolide antimicrobial works by inhibiting the protein synthesis in bacteria by binding to subunit 50S of the bacterial ribosome. This binding hinders the peptidyl transferase activity and interferes with amino acid translocation during the protein synthesis and translation. This is available in Biaxin 500 mg and 250 mg tablets.
How to use Biaxin
Read the medicine information booklet that comes with this product first. Do not take this oral antibiotic if you have not yet fully understood the drug information and instructions in the guide provided. If you need further medical advice or have queries on this treatment, you can ask your doctor or pharmacist.
Take Biaxin orally. This is usually prescribed twice daily, with or without food or as directed by the physician. If you develop an upset stomach, you may have to take it with food. Swallow the tablet whole. Do not break, split, crush, or chew the oral medication to avoid releasing the drug all at once.
Remember to take Biaxin regularly. It is very important to make a dosing schedule with even intervals to achieve the best results. Your dose and length of treatment will depend on your medical condition, response to treatment, and for children, weight. Continue taking Biaxin until the full length of treatment is finished. This is to avoid the return of the infection.
