Does Azithromycin Contain Sulfa?
Does azithromycin contain sulfa? thanks.
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Azithromycin is an antibiotic from the macrolide group. This drug does not contain sulfa groups in it. All antibiotics that contain sulfa groups will contain the name "sulf-" in it for example sulfadiazine, sulfamethoxazole, sulfasalazine, sulfisoxazole. If you have an allergy to sulfa, you also need to pay attention that there are other drugs (which are not antibiotics) that can also contain sulfa in them. If indeed you have a sulfa allergy, you should always inform your doctor of your history of allergies so that your doctor can give you drugs that do not contain sulfa.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
