Zithromax Suspension is used to treat bacterial infections, such as bronchitis, pneumonia, sexually transmitted diseases, and infections of the ears, lungs, sinuses, skin, throat, and reproductive organs. It is not effective against viral infections like the common cold or flu. Misuse or unnecessary use of antibiotics can lead to decreased effectiveness.


  • Take Zithromax Suspension exactly as prescribed by your healthcare provider, typically once daily with or without food.
  • Shake the suspension thoroughly before each use.
  • Use the provided measuring device/spoon, not a household spoon, to ensure the correct dose.
  • Take Zithromax at evenly spaced times each day, ideally at the same time(s) to maintain consistent levels in your body.
  • Continue taking Zithromax for the entire prescribed duration, even if symptoms improve, to ensure complete eradication of the infection. Stopping early can lead to recurrence.
  • If you take antacids containing aluminum or magnesium, wait at least 2 hours before or after taking Zithromax to avoid decreased absorption.
  • Tell your healthcare provider if your condition worsens or persists after taking Zithromax.


  • Don't adjust your dosage or treatment schedule without consulting your healthcare provider.
  • Don't take Zithromax past its expiration date.
  • Don't  skip doses. Skipping doses can reduce Zithromax's effectiveness and increase the risk of antibiotic resistance.
  • Don't use leftover Zithromax suspension for future illnesses without consulting your healthcare provider. Each prescription is intended for a specific infection.

Certain medical conditions or medications can increase the risk of QT prolongation with Zithromax. Tell your healthcare provider about:

  • Existing heart problems (heart failure, slow heartbeat, QT prolongation)
  • Family history of heart problems (QT prolongation, sudden cardiac death)
  • Electrolyte imbalances (low potassium or magnesium)

Zithromax may interfere with the effectiveness of live bacterial vaccines. Discuss any planned vaccinations with your healthcare provider before using Zithromax.

Tell your healthcare provider about all medications you take, including Zithromax Suspension, before having surgery.

Older adults may be more susceptible to side effects like QT prolongation.

Infants younger than 6 weeks may be at higher risk for a serious stomach problem. Contact your healthcare provider if your baby vomits or becomes irritable while feeding.

Zithromax should only be used during pregnancy when clearly necessary. Discuss the risks and benefits with your healthcare provider.
