Aziwok 500 MG Description

Aziwok 500 tablet contains azithromycin, an antibiotic. It is used for the treatment of various bacterial infections. Azithromycin prevents the spread of infection by inhibiting the enzyme responsibl

e for bacterial cell growth, thus resulting in cell death. You should take this medicine only if it is prescribed by the doctor and try to take the medicine at the same time every day to get the optimum results. Antibiotics are only effective against bacterial infections not for viral, so using them unnecessarily can lead to antibiotic resistance. Inform your doctor if you are pregnant, planning a pregnancy or breastfeeding and about all the medicines and supplements you take and all the conditions or diseases you suffer from, before starting Aziwok 500 tablet.
