Do You Need A Doctor’s Prescription?
If I want to buy azithromycin at the pharmacy, do I need a prescription from a doctor??
Azithromycin is a macrolide antibiotic drug that is useful in treating various types of infections such as respiratory tract infections, skin, eye, and sexually transmitted infections (chlamydia, gonorrhea, etc.). To get this drug must be with a doctor's prescription. In general, all antibiotics must be prescribed by a doctor. The goal is of course that the use of antibiotics is right on target, because in many cases buying your own antibiotics without a doctor's prescription increases the risk of antibiotic resistance. If it is resistant if in the future it is infected with bacteria again, it will be difficult to find an effective antibiotic to overcome the germs that cause it.
Azithromycin works by stopping the growth of bacteria in the body. The dose given by the doctor usually depends on the type of infection that is being suffered. If the doctor prescribes a drug for more than 1 use, then make sure to take it until it runs out for maximum effect of the drug.
