Clarithromycin Oral Suspension is an antibiotic medication. It is given to treat a wide range of bacterial infections targeting the ear, throat, teeth, lungs, heart, skin, and gastrointestinal tract. It also helps treat bacterial infections that can occur in children with HIV due to their weak immune systems.
Clarithromycin Oral Suspension should be given by mouth with or without food. It is usually given two times a day, preferably in the morning and evening. Since, the medicine dose depends on the type of infection, its severity, and your age and body weight, make sure to stick to the dose, time, and way prescribed by the doctor.
This medicine may cause some minor and temporary side effects such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, stomach pain, headache, and taste change. These should subside within a few days of starting the medicine. But, in case these effects fail to improve or become bothersome for you, consult your doctor without any delay.
