San Francisco, CA, December 01, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Koshland Custom Compound Pharmacy announced today that it has the capacity to fill prescriptions for Azithromycin Oral Suspension, which currently are in very short supply according to the FDA. Patients requiring this antibiotic generally have been diagnosed with severe sore throats, pneumonia and sinusitis.
Azithromycin is an antibiotic (macrolide-type) used to treat a wide variety of bacterial infections. This antibiotic only treats bacterial infections. It will not work for viral infections (e.g., common cold, flu). It is effective against susceptible bacteria causing otitis media (infection of the middle ear), tonsillitis, laryngitis, bronchitis, pneumonia, and sinusitis. It also is effective against several sexually transmitted infectious diseases such as nongonococcal urethritis and cervicitis.
