Aziraz 200mg Suspension

Indications :-

Azithromycin is indicated for use in children for the treatment of the following infections:

·     Lower respiratory tract infections .

·     Upper respiratory tract infections .

·     Uncomplicated skin and skin structural infections .

·     Prevention of infection due to Mycobacterium avium-intracellulare Complex (MAC) disease, when used as the sole agent or in combination with rifabutin at its approved dose, in children aged more than 12 years with HIV infection and CD4 cell count less than or equal to 75 cells/(L (see PRECAUTIONS). Disseminated infection due to Mycobacterium avium-intracellulare complex should be excluded by a negative blood culture prior to commencement of therapy.

·     Acute streptococcal pharyngitis/tonsillitis.

Note: Penicillin is the usual drug of choice in the treatment of Streptococcus pyogenes pharyngitis, including the prophylaxis of rheumatic fever. The 20 mg/kg azithromycin dose appears to be as effective as penicillin in the treatment of streptococcal pharyngitis. However, substantial data establishing the efficacy of azithromycin in the subsequent prevention of rheumatic fever are not available at present.

·     Chlamydia trachomatis conjunctivitis and trachoma in children 12 months or older.
