Like many kids, I was plagued with regular strep throat infections. And, like some kids, my penicillin allergy prevented me from taking the first-line antibiotics to treat those illnesses. So, like many—probably too many—kids and adults, I got Z-Pack antibiotics. Unlike other antibiotics that were usually difficult for me to take as a kid and required multiple doses a day for 10 days or more, Z-Packs only required a breezy five-day course of small, often pink pills.

User Reviews for Azithromycin to treat Tonsillitis/Pharyngitis

Azithromycin versus penicillin V for treatment of acute group A streptococcal pharyngitis

Azithromycin has an average rating of 5. I had to deal with strep for a month before I could actually take my antibiotic because people on here made it seem like it was the worst drug they've ever had. So far I've had no side effects. And it's working great. My suggestion is don't try and research what other people have said about it. Try it for yourself.

What Happened to Z-Packs, the Only Antibiotics I Was Ever Excited to Take?

Strep throat is an infection of your throat and tonsils , the two small tissue masses in the back of your throat. The infection can cause symptoms such as sore throat and swollen glands. It can also cause fever , loss of appetite, and white spots on your tonsils. Treatment with an antibiotic can shorten the amount of time you have strep throat symptoms and decrease the spread of infection to other people. Antibiotics can also prevent strep throat from turning into a more serious illness, such as rheumatic fever.
Janet R. Casey, Michael E. Azithromycin has become a frequent choice for the treatment of group A streptococcal GAS tonsillopharyngitis. In this study, our objective was to determine the optimal dose of azithromycin for treatment of GAS tonsillopharyngitis in children and adults by analyzing trials that used different dose regimens. We performed a meta-analysis of randomized, controlled trials that involved bacteriological confirmation of GAS tonsillopharyngitis, random assignment to receive either azithromycin or a day comparator antibiotic, and assessment of bacteriological eradication by throat culture after therapy.
