Zithromax is a macrolide antibiotic belonging to the same group as the well-known erythromycin. It is perfect for eliminating a great variety of bacteria-influenced infections including respiratory, skin and ear sicknesses as well as sexually transmitted diseases.

If you have noticed yourself being allergic to erythromycin and similar medications, such as clarithromycin, azithromycin, troleandomycin or telithromycin, it is best to avoid taking Zithromax.
