Warnings, Precautions and Contraindications for Zithromax Use
A patient should obligatorily consult a healthcare provider or another qualified medical specialist before the beginning of Zithromax course. The medication is not approved for people, who are hypersensitive to its active ingredients, have liver disorders or jaundice related to the drug intake or other allergic reactions to similar treatments. Pregnant and breastfeeding women can develop a harmful health impact on the health of an unborn and nursing child, so its intake should be eliminated, or at least discussed with the doctor.

Zithromax can lead to dangerous side effects if taken together with other medications, minerals, vitamins, herbal supplements and other pharmaceutical products.
Recommendations for Zithromax Administration
Take Zithromax right as adjusted by a healthcare specialist, with no changes and diversifications. Duration of the course and dose adjustment may vary greatly, depending on the type of infection and patient’s health state.
