What is Erythromycin (Generic Erythromycin) and what are its uses?

Erythromycin is a macrolide antibiotic.

Erythromycin kills certain bacteria or stops their growth.

Erythromycin treats many kinds of infection, including pneumonia (lung infections), skin infections, some sexually transmitted diseases, and Legionnaire's disease. 

Erythromycin cream, ointment and gel are used to treat severe acne.

How does Erythromycin (Generic Erythromycin) treat?

Erythromycin tablets, creams, ointments and gels contain the active ingredient Erythromycin, which is a type of medicine known as a macrolide antibiotic. Erythromycin is used to treat infections caused by bacteria.

Erythromycin exerts its mechanism of action by preventing bacteria from producing proteins, which are essential to them. Without these proteins the bacteria cannot grow, multiply and increase in numbers.

Erythromycin thereby stops the spread of infection and the remaining bacteria are killed by the body's immune system and they eventually die.

Effect of other drugs consumed with Erythromycin (Generic Erythromycin)

The following drugs may interact with Erythromycin tablets and they may increase or decrease its activity.

Tell your prescriber or health care professional about all other medicines you are taking, including non-prescription medicines, nutritional supplements, or herbal products. Also tell your prescriber or health care professional if you are a frequent user of drinks with caffeine or alcohol, if you smoke, or if you use illegal drugs. These may affect the way Erythromycin works. Check with your health care professional before stopping or starting any of your medicines.

Do not use skin products containing dexamethasone, hydrocortisone and prednisolone at the same time as Erythromycin topical as they can cover up problems. Do not use any other skin products without telling your prescriber or health care professional. Check before starting or stopping any of your medicines or non-prescription products.

Skin drying preparations such as medicated cosmetics; soaps, toiletries and other anti-acne preparations increase the likelihood of dryness and irritation of the skin.

Although when taken orally Erythromycin can interact with many medicines, when applied directly to unbroken skin Erythromycin is not expected to be absorbed in sufficient quantities to cause interaction problems.

If you get severe or watery diarrhea, do not treat yourself. Call your prescriber or health care professional for advice.

What should you watch for while taking Erythromycin (Generic Erythromycin)?

Erythromycin, like any other antibiotic, works best when there is a constant amount of drug in the blood. To help keep the drug amount constant, it is important not to miss any doses. Also, it is advisable to take the doses at evenly spaced times around the clock.

There is no evidence that Erythromycin will harm a developing baby, but the possibility has not been completely ruled out. If you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant, inform your doctor immediately.

Erythromycin appears in breast milk and could affect a nursing infant. If Erythromycin is essential to your health, your doctor may advise you to discontinue breastfeeding until your treatment is finished.

If you have ever had liver disease, consult your doctor before taking Erythromycin.

If a new infection (called super infection) develops, talk to your doctor. You may need to be treated with a different antibiotic.

Erythromycin may cause a severe form of intestinal inflammation. If you develop diarrhea, contact your doctor immediately. If you have myasthenia gravis (muscle weakness), it can be aggravated by Erythromycin.

When Erythromycin is used to treat syphilis in pregnant women, it does not prevent the disease from infecting their babies. The infants should be treated after birth with penicillin.
