Cipla Azithromycin (500mg Tablet)
Cipla Azithromycin is a medication that contains the active ingredient azithromycin, which belongs to a class of antibiotics called macrolides. It is used to treat a wide range of bacterial infections by inhibiting the growth of bacteria. Azithromycin is particularly effective against respiratory tract infections, skin and soft tissue infections, and sexually transmitted infections.
Dosage and Administration:
Cipla Azithromycin is available in 500 mg tablets. The dosage and duration of treatment can vary depending on the type and severity of the infection. It’s important to follow your doctor’s instructions or the information on the prescription label.
For most infections, the typical dosage is:
- 500 mg once daily for three days for conditions like respiratory tract infections, skin infections, and uncomplicated genital infections.
For some infections, your doctor might prescribe a different dosage or duration of treatment. Always complete the full course of antibiotics, even if you start feeling better before finishing the medication. Stopping antibiotics prematurely can lead to the development of antibiotic-resistant bacteria.
Cipla Azithromycin tablets can be taken with or without food. Swallow the tablet whole with a glass of water.

Like all medications, Cipla Azithromycin can have potential side effects, although not everyone will experience them. Common side effects may include:
