If you want to start taking Biaxin, it is vital to do it correctly to be safe. The most important thing to recall is that Biaxin must be taken the way your doctor prescribes it. Don’t change their prescription or you will fail to see positive results or even harm yourself. Biaxin should only be used to treat a health issue that has been clarified by the doctor.
So it is totally irresponsible to give this medication to another person who has not seen a doctor. Let them get checked as well. When taking Biaxin, you can safely do it with or without eating a meal.
Usually, Biaxin is prescribed for seven to fourteen days. Don’t take it beyond this duration. By this time your symptoms will have improved. Don’t skip your doses either as this can put you in danger of developing a new bacterial infection that will not respond to Biaxin or another antibiotic.
If you must take other medicines to treat the same infection, follow your doctor’s instructions completely to ensure your safety.
