Azibond general information

What is Azibond used for?

Azibond tablets 500mg are used to treat mild to moderate infections caused by certain susceptible types of bacteria in different areas of the body, including:

  • Respiratory tract infections caused by Streptococcus or Haemophilus, such as pneumonia and bronchitis; also tonsillitis, sinusitis, pharyngitis and otitis medis (ear infection)
  • Sexually transmitted disease caused by Chlamydia, including urethritis and cervicitis
  • Pelvic inflammatory disease (infection and inflammation of uterus, fallopian tubes and ovaries)
  • Conjunctivitis and trachoma (eye infection) caused Chlamydia trachomatis
  • Skin infections and skin structure infections, including abscess and ulcers caused by Staphylococcus.

Azibond 500 also used to prevent opportunistic infection (bacteria that lie dormant until activated by low immunity) with Mycobacterium avium-intracellulare complex (MAC) in people with HIV infection.

How does Azibond work?

Azibond tablets 500mg contain Azithromycin, an antibiotic belonging to the azalides group, which is a sub-class of the macrolides.  Azibond 500 prevents the spread of bacterial infection by blocking bacterial protein synthesis so that the bacteria cannot produce proteins that are needed for its growth.  This action stops the growth of the bacteria and relieves symptoms of the bacterial infection, which include inflammation and pain.  Azibond tablets 500mg do not work against viruses which use a different mechanism to grow and replicate.

What does Azibond contain?

Azibond tablets 500mg contain azithromycin dihydrate, an antibiotic belonging to the azalides group, which is a sub-class of the macrolides and is used to treat susceptible bacterial infections.
