Raxitid 150 mg is a prescription treatment for patients with the following mild to moderately severe infections:
— Upper respiratory tract infections such as acute pharyngitis, sinusitis, tonsillitis
— Lower respiratory tract infections such as acute bronchitis, community-acquired pneumonia, and exacerbations of chronic bronchitis
— Dental infections
— Skin and skin structure infections
— Nongonococcal urethritis
The medicine contains the active ingredient Roxithromycin which belongs to a group of drugs known as macrolides. These antibiotics kill or stop the growth of bacteria that are responsible for causing infection. Raxitid, like other antibiotics, is ineffective against viral infections such as the flu. Your doctor may prescribe Roxithromycin for another reason; talk to him if you have any questions about why Raxitid has been prescribed.
Raxitid is contraindicated in patients with known hypersensitivity to roxithromycin and erythromycin. It should not be used in patients with severely impaired liver function. The use of roxithromycin with vasoconstrictive ergot alkaloids is prohibited. Prolonged or repeated use of antibacterial medications may result in superinfections by resistant organisms. In the event of superinfection, Raxitid should be discontinued, and appropriate therapy should be introduced.
Do not take Roxithromycin if you take certain medicines for migraine headaches called ergot alkaloids. Speak to your doctor if you are unsure whether you are taking one of these medicines. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant. Discuss the risks and benefits of taking this medicine during pregnancy. Also, let him know if you are breastfeeding, Raxitid passes into the breast milk. Inform your doctor if you have had other health conditions, including impaired kidney function or liver problems.
Get medical help if you notice any of the following side effects:
— Vaginal thrush- itchy vagina or discharge
— Oral thrush - white, sore throat and mouth
— Loss of appetite

Other side effects not mentioned above may occur in some patients. Inform your doctor if you observe anything that is making you feel unwell.
Raxitid may not be interchangeable with other products containing this ingredient in the market. It should be taken at least fifteen minutes before food or on an empty stomach. Swallow the tablet with a drink of water. The usual dose is one Raxitid 150 mg tablet twice daily or two tablets once daily. For atypical pneumonia, the recommended dosage is 150 mg twice a day. The usual duration of treatment is five to ten days depending on the indication and clinical response. Streptococcal throat infections require at least ten days of treatment. Some people with nongonococcal genital infections may require twenty days for a complete cure.
For children 40 kg and over, one Raxitid tablet is given morning and evening. The usual duration of treatment is five to ten days of treatment. The duration of therapy should not exceed ten days.
Caution should be taken if this medicine is administered to patients with impaired liver function, as its serum half-life increases in patients with liver failure. If given to patients with a severe liver impairment such as jaundice or hepatic cirrhosis, the dose should be reduced by half to 150 mg once daily.
In the elderly and those with kidney failure, dose reduction is not required for the normal short course of treatment.
