What to Expect While Taking Azomax?
Azomax is well tolerated with a low incidence of side effects. Most side-effects observed were mild to moderate in severity. The majority of side-effects were of gastrointestinal origin with nausea, abdominal discomfort (pain/cramps), vomiting, flatulence/diarrhoea and loose stools being occasionally observed. Allergic reactions such as rashes have occured and there have also been rare reports of serious hypersensitivity reactions. Reversible elevations in liver transaminases have been seen with a frequency similar to the comparative macrolides and penicillins used in clinical trials. Transient mild reductions in neutrophil counts have occasionally been observed in clinical trials, although a casual relationship to azithromycin has not been established.
There are no data on overdosage with azithromycin.
Typical symptoms of overdosage with macrolide antibiotics include hearing loss, severe nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea. Gastric lavage and general supportive measures are indicated.
