Also known as:
Aziwok is a semi-synthetic macrolide antibiotic of the azalide class. Like other macrolide
Aziwok inhibits bacterial protein synthesis by binding to the 50S ribosomal subunit of the bacterial 70S
ribosome. Binding inhibits peptidyl transferase activity and interferes with amino acid translocation
the process of translation. Its effects may be bacteriostatic or bactericidal depending of the organism
the drug concentration. Its long half life, which enables once daily dosing and shorter administration
durations, is a property distinct from other macrolides.
Aziwok is the local analog (generic) of more famous drug Aziwok that has the same active substance
(ingredient) and in result the same therapeutic effect. The main difference is that Aziwok is registered
a small local pharmaceutical company. The presence of the same active substance guarantees an identical
pharmaceutical (therapeutic) effect on the body.
It is possible to buy Aziwok only in the pharmacies of the country where it is produced. With us, you
buy its more famous analog Aziwok, which is approved by the FDA and is sold worldwide. The same active
substance guarantees the identity of the drugs and the identity of the pharmaceutical properties (they
only different names and packaging, in which they are sold).
It is important that your child completes the course of antibiotic. This means that they must take the
medicine for the number of days that the doctor has told you to, or until all the medicine has been
taken. If you stop giving the antibiotic too soon, the troublesome bacteria that are left will start to
multiply again, and may cause another infection. There is also a risk that these bacteria will be
resistant to (no longer be killed by) the first antibiotic. This means that it might not work next
time, and your child might need a different antibiotic, which might not work as well or cause more
Children are sometimes sick (vomit) or get diarrhoea when taking antibiotics. Encourage them to drink
water to replace the fluid they have lost. If it is severe or your child is drowsy, contact your doctor.
Do not give your child any medicine to stop the diarrhoea unless your doctor has told you to, as this
can make things worse.
Try to give the medicine at about the same times each day, to help you remember, and to make sure that
there is the right amount of medicine in your child’s body to kill the bacteria.
Only give this medicine to your child for their current infection.
Never save medicine for future illnesses. Give old or unused antibiotics to your pharmacist to dispose
Only give the antibiotic to the child for whom it was prescribed. Never give it to anyone else, even
if their condition appears to be the same, as this could do harm.
Adverse reactions experienced at higher than recommended doses were similar to those seen at normal
doses particularly nausea, diarrhea, and vomiting. In the event of overdosage, general symptomatic and
supportive measures are indicated as required.
Store at room temperature between 15 and 30 degrees C (59 and 86 degrees F) away from moisture and heat. Throw away any unused medicine after the expiration date. Keep out of reach of children in a container that small children cannot open.
