What is Clarbact 500?
Clarbact containing the active ingredient clarithromycin is considered a macrolide antibiotic type of medication. The medication works by preventing the growth of bacteria that causes infections. It can be used to treat bacterial infections such as pneumonia, bronchitis, otitis media, Lyme disease and infections to the skin, throat and sinuses. The tablets can also be used in combination with other medication to treat stomach ulcers caused by helicobacter pylori. The drug can be used to treat bacterial infections but cannot be used to treat viral infections such as the flu or common cold.

How is Clarbact 500 used?
Clarbact is usually taken orally 1 to 2 times per day or as directed by a doctor. The tablets can be taken with or without food but should be taken with a glass of water. Contact a doctor for the correct dosage and length of treatment as it will depend on the patient's condition and their response to the therapy. Do not discontinue the medication without completing the prescribed cycle, even if symptoms seem to have healed, as abruptly stopping the treatment may cause a relapse in the condition and allow the bacteria to become immune to the antibiotic.
