Erythromycin is an antibacterial medicine with a broad spectrum of action. Patients who want to use an effective antibiotic for the treatment of infectious diseases can buy Erythromycin in Australia.
Erythromycin is an antibiotic from the macrolide group. The action mechanism of this antibacterial drug is based on the inhibition of proteins synthesis by the microorganisms-pathogens. Erythromycin exerts a bacteriostatic action, yet a bactericidal effect is possible for high-sensitivity agents with a high concentration of the drug and a low microbial density.
Erythromycin cost depends on the form of release. You can find five medicinal forms of Erythromycin in the pharmacies of Australia:
In addition to the listed medicinal forms, you can also find Erythromycin eye ointment, which is used to treat bacterial conjunctivitis, blepharitis, and to heal burns. The eye ointment is not for sale in conventional Australian drugstores, and you can buy it only online.
After the ingestion, Erythromycin is well absorbed and well assimilated absorbed. The maximum concentration in the blood plasma is reached in 60-120 minutes after the oral administration. The half-life is about 1.5 hours. In patients with impaired renal function, the half-life of Erythromycin can reach 6 hours.
After the intravenous infusion, the time to reach the maximum concentration depends on the administered dose of Erythromycin:
The half-life of Erythromycin after an intravenous infusion is approximately 1.4 hours. In patients with renal insufficiency, the half-life of Erythromycin can be prolonged to 6 hours, which, however, is not a cause for dose adjustment.
Erythromycin gel has virtually no systemic effects. The gel is poorly absorbed through the skin, and the absorption degree from the mucous membranes is not established.
To treat infectious diseases, adults only need to take 1 g of Erythromycin, divided into 2-4 intakes. Erythromycin dose for children depends on their age, weight and severity of the infection. Treatment of infectious diseases with the help of an antibacterial drug can take 1-2 weeks.
Erythromycin injections are used when the patient has a severe form of an infectious disease that requires immediate administration of high antibiotic doses. Injectable solution of Erythromycin is recommended only for intravenous administration. The solution should be administered by slow continuous infusion within 1 hour. During the period of Erythromycin injection forms use, you can transfer to the oral antibiotic without hindrance.
In Australia, you can buy Erythromycin gel under the brand name Eryacne, which is used to treat acne. Before the application, thoroughly wash the affected area of the skin with a mild cleansing soap. Apply a thin layer of gel twice a day. Treatment of acne with Erythromycin gel can take about 2 months.
Besides the antibacterial effect, Erythromycin gel exerts additional anti-inflammatory effect, in particular, through the suppression of the lipases production by the microorganisms-pathogens, thus preventing the formation of free fatty acids.
