Biaxin is used for treating infections caused by certain bacteria. Biaxin is a macrolide antibiotic. It works by stopping the growth of or killing sensitive bacteria by reducing the production of important proteins needed by the bacteria to survive.
Use Biaxin as directed by your doctor.
- Take Biaxin by mouth with or without food.
- Biaxin works best if it is taken at the same time each day.
- Continue to take Biaxin even if you feel well.
- Do not miss any dose. If you miss a dose of Biaxin, take it as soon as possible. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and go back to your regular dosing schedule. Do not take 2 doses at once.
Ask your health care provider any questions you may have about how to use Biaxin.
