Biaxin (Clarithromycin) is a macrolide antibiotic used for many different types of bacterial infections affecting the skin and respiratory system, including strep throat and pneumonia. Biaxin is also used together with other medications to treat stomach ulcers caused by Helicobacter Pylori. Biaxin works by stopping the growth of bacteria. Biaxin must be used for the full prescribed length of time, as your symptoms may improve before the infection is fully cleared. Biaxin is an antibiotic that will treat bacterial infections only. It will not treat a viral infection such as the common cold or flu.
Canadian Pharmacy King currently offers the brand Biaxin from Canada manufactured by Abbott and from Turkey also called Klacid manufactured by Abbott in the strength of 250 mg and 500 mg tablets. The generic Clarithromycin comes from Canada manufactured by a different manufacturer in the strength of 250 mg and 500 mg tablets.
The common side effects of Biaxin include stomach pain, nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea, or an unusual or unpleasant taste in your mouth. Contact your doctor at once if you experience severe stomach pain, diarrhea that is watery or bloody, fast or pounding heartbeats, fluttering in your chest, shortness of breath, dizziness, or signs of liver problems (loss of appetite, upper stomach pain, jaundice, clay coloured stools, dark urine) or kidney problems (little or no urination, swelling in your feet or ankles, feeling tired or short of breath). Seek emergency medical attention if you have symptoms of a heart attack or stroke, or if you have any signs of an allergic reaction.
You should not use Biaxin if you are allergic to clarithromycin or similar medications, or if you have had liver or kidney disease caused by clarithromycin or other medications. To make sure Biaxin is safe for you, tell your doctor if you have ever had a heart disorder, long QT syndrome, coronary artery disease, myasthenia gravis, liver or kidney disease, diabetes, or an electrolyte imbalance. Inform your doctor if you are pregnant or breastfeeding to discuss any possible risks. Tell your doctor about any medications you are currently taking, to avoid any drug interactions.
