Biaxin XL Overview
Clarithromycin is used to treat a wide variety of bacterial respiratory tract infections. Clarithromycin is known as a macrolide antibiotic. It works by stopping the growth of bacteria. This antibiotic treats only bacterial infections. It will not work for viral infections (such as common cold, flu). Using any antibiotic when it is not needed can cause it to not work for future infections.
How to Use Biaxin XL
Take Biaxin XL by mouth with food as directed by your doctor, usually once daily. Swallow the tablets whole. Do not crush or chew the tablets. Doing so can release all of the drug at once, increasing the risk of side effects. For the best effect, take this antibiotic at evenly spaced times. To help you remember, take Biaxin XL at the same time(s) every day. The dosage and length of treatment are based on your medical condition and response to treatment. Continue to take Biaxin XL until the full prescribed amount is finished, even if symptoms disappear after a few days. Stopping the medication too early may result in a return of the infection. Tell your doctor if your condition lasts or gets worse.
