Are Z-Packs Still a Good Choice for Infections?

Dr. Sharon Orrange
Dr. Sharon Orrange -

The Z-Pack (Zithromax, azithromycin) is an antibiotic medication that unfairly gets a bad rap. True, it’s often incorrectly prescribed for sinus infections caused by viruses, which don’t respond to antibiotics. But Z-Packs offer many benefits we shouldn’t forget. Here are some of reasons why they’re still worth considering.

First, Z-Packs are easy to use and they’re cheap. They come as a pack of five pills, which you take daily over the course of five days, and they’re highly effective. See More

Dr. Sharon Orrange -

What is the Z-Pak used to treat?

The Z-Pak (Zithromax), is a five-day course of the antibiotic, azithromycin. It’s used to treat certain bacterial infections, including some sinus infections and upper respiratory tract infections (URIs) that lead to headaches, congestion, and runny noses. See More
