Erythromycin - Overview
Erythromycin is a type of antibiotic available as an erythromycin ointment and tablets which is used to prevent and treat infections strongly suspected or proven to be caused by susceptible bacteria. People who might need an erythromycin prescription can connect with a medical provider through Push Health who can prescribe erythromycin medication when appropriate to do so.
Erythromycin - Mechanism of Action
What is erythromycin used for? Erythromycin, marketed under the brand name Erygel and Erythrocin, belongs to a class of medications known as macrolide antibiotics. Erythromycin blocks synthesis of proteins in organisms through its effect on the 50S ribosomal subunit. Erythromycin may also have some effects on neutrophils. Some resistance to erythromycin has been observed which occurs through modification of the 23S rRNA. Erythromycin has demonstrated efficacy against gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria and other selected organisms. Erythromycin is similar to azithromycin (Zithromax) which is found in the Z-pak.
Erythromycin - Dosage and Cost
Erythromycin ophthalmic ointment is sometimes used for conjunctivitis and is often administered by applying 1.25 cm every 4 to 12 hours. Erythromycin is sometimes available as erythromycin ethylsuccinate and, by itself, is not readily soluble in water. Erythromycin diffuses throughout the body. Erythromycin ointment is affordable, costing approximately $10 for 1 erythromycin 0.5% ointment tube with 3.5 grams. Erythromycin coupons may be available online and the cost of the medication may be covered under some insurance plans. Erythromycin tablets should be stored away from moisture and light below 30° C
Can I Buy Erythromycin Online?
Erythromycin ointment is a prescription medication which means that erythromycin OTC (over the counter) is not available in the United States. One cannot simply buy erythromycin online, either. Instead, the first step is to get an erythromycin prescription following a consultation with a licensed medical provider. Push Health can connect people who need an erythromycin medication prescription, including erythromycin ointment, with a medical provider who can prescribe erythromycin prescription medication when appropriate.
Erythromycin - Side Effects
Erythromycin can cause side effects when used. Side effects from erythromycin ointment use include irritation, redness and discharge. When taken orally, erythromycin can cause stomach discomfort, nausea and vomiting. People who have had a hypersensitivity or allergic reaction to erythromycin or similar antibiotics should avoid the medication. Erythromycin should generally not be used by people taking terfenadine, astemizole, pimozide or cisapride. Erythromycin should be managed carefully when utilized over a long period of time. Erythromycin and alcohol should not be used together. Before using erythromycin, patients should discuss possible side effects with a pharmacist and medical provider.
