Also known as:
Macrozit is in a group of drugs called macrolide antibiotics. Macrozit fights bacteria in the body. Macrozit
is used to treat many different types of infections caused by bacteria, such as respiratory infections,
infections, ear infections, and sexually transmitted diseases. Macrozit may also be used for purposes
than those listed in this medication guide.
To reduce the development of drug-resistant bacteria and maintain the effectiveness of Macrozit Tablets
other antibacterial drugs, Macrozit Tablets should be used only to treat infections that are proven or
strongly suspected to be caused by susceptible bacteria. When culture and susceptibility information are
available, they should be considered in selecting or modifying antibacterial therapy. In the absence of
data, local epidemiology and susceptibility patterns may contribute to the empiric selection of therapy.
Macrozit Tablets are a macrolide antibacterial drug indicated for the treatment of patients with mild to
moderate infections caused by susceptible strains of the designated microorganisms in the specific
conditions listed below.
Macrozit is an antibiotic used to treat bacterial infections of the nose, throat, lungs, bronchitis,
skin, soft tissues, and sexually transmitted genital and urinary infections.
Macrozit is a semi-synthetic macrolide antibiotic of the azalide class. Like other macrolide
Macrozit inhibits bacterial protein synthesis by binding to the 50S ribosomal subunit of the bacterial 70S
ribosome. Binding inhibits peptidyl transferase activity and interferes with amino acid translocation
the process of translation. Its effects may be bacteriostatic or bactericidal depending of the organism
the drug concentration. Its long half life, which enables once daily dosing and shorter administration
durations, is a property distinct from other macrolides.
