Zathrin general information

What is Zathrin used for?

Zanthrin tablets 250mg are used to treat mild to moderate infections caused by certain susceptible types of bacteria in different areas of the body, including:
  • sexually transmitted disease caused by Chlamydia, including urethritis and cervicitis
  • upper respiratory tract infections caused by Streptococcus or Haemophilus, such as bronchitis, tonsillitis, sinusitis, otitis medis (ear infection) and pharyngitis
  • lower respiratory tract infections such as bronchitis and pneumonia, caused by Streptococcus or Haemophilus
  • conjunctivitis (eye infection) caused by Chlamydia
  • skin infections caused by Staphylococcus
Zanthrin 250mg tablets are 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.

How does Zathrin work?

Zathrin tablets 250mg contain Azithromycin, an antibiotic belonging to the azalides group, which is a sub-class of the macrolides. Zathrin 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. Zathrin 250mg tablets do not work against viruses which use a different mechanism to grow and replicate.

What does Zathrin contain?

Zathrin tablets 250mg 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.

Treating opportunistic bacterial infection in HIV with Zathrin

Zathrin tablets 250mg contain Azithromycin, an antibiotic that is used to treat mild to moderate infections caused by certain susceptible types of bacteria in different areas of the body. People with HIV are susceptible to opportunistic infection by bacteria that lie dormant until they become activated when immunity is low. Mycobacterium avium-intracellulare complex (MAC) can cause infections in several organs and can lead to tuberculosis. Zanthrin 250, usually in conjunction with another antibiotic, is used to prevent opportunistic infection in people with HIV. Zathrin 250mg tablets do not work against HIV as viruses use a different mechanism to grow and replicate.

What are the side effects of Zathrin?
