  • How does it work?
  • For the treatment of infections due to susceptible organisms such as upper and lower respiratory infections, otitis media, skin and skin structure infections and other mycobacterial infections.
  • How is it taken?
  • The recommended daily dosage of Clarithromycin Pediatric Suspension (125 mg/5 mL) in children is 7.5 mg/Kg twice a day up to a maximum dose of 500 mg twice daily for non-mycobacterial infections. The usual duration of treatment is for 5 to 10 days depending on the pathogen involved and the severity of the condition. The prepared suspension can be taken with or without meals and can be taken with milk. Or as prescribed by the physician. In children with creatinine clearance less than 30mL/min., the dosage of Clarithromycin should be reduced by one-half, i.e. up to 250 mg once daily, or 250 mg twice daily in more severe infections. Dosage should not be continued beyond 14 days in these patients. Or as prescribed by the physician.
  • Precaution!
  • The liver excretes Clarithromycin. Therefore, caution should be exercised in administering the antibiotic to patients with impaired hepatic function and with moderate to severe renal failure. Attention should be paid to the possibility of cross-resistance between Clarithromycin and other macrolide drugs, as well as lincomycin and clindamycin. Clarithromycin should not be used during pregnancy if possible. High doses have been associated with embryo toxicity in animal studies.
