Macrolides: drugs of this group of antibiotics,list, titles, performance

Update: October 2018

Macrolides – a group of antibacterial drugs, the basis
the structures of which a macrocyclic lactone ring acts.
Thanks to the ability to disrupt the formation of bacteria proteins,
macrolide antibiotics stop their livelihoods. AT
high dosages drugs completely destroy

Macrolide antibiotics show activity by
relation to:

  • gram-positive bacteria (streptococci, staphylococci,
    mycobacteria, etc.);
  • gram-negative bacilli (enterobacteria, Helicobacter
    pylori, hemophilus bacillus, etc.);
  • intracellular microorganisms (moraksella, legionella,
    mycoplasmas, chlamydia, etc.).

The action of macrolides is mainly aimed at therapy.
infectious diseases of the respiratory tract due to atypical and
gram-positive pathogens.

that they are united by the mechanism of action on microbes and belonging
To the same group, there are significant differences:

  • Toxoplasma.

Adverse reactions
  • Центральная и периферическая нервная система:
    systemic vertigo, headaches, nightmares, general
    excitability, hallucinations, disturbed rhythm of sleep-wakefulness.
  • Сердце и сосудистое русло: сердцебиение,

Safety for pregnant and lactating patients
  • Should refuse to lactation.
  • Use during pregnancy may be permitted if use

Thus, the benefits of azithromycin include
fewer adverse reactions in the form of severe hazardous
life states.

For clarithromycin, the advantages of use are a wider
spectrum of action and rapid achievement of stable blood levels

The main minus for both macrolide antibiotics is undesirable

Use in childhood

The use of macrolides for children is a separate section:
not always drugs of this group are allowed for use without
restrictions. In addition, the recommended dosage of drugs
turn out to be lower than the adult population, and almost always
calculated on the body weight of the baby.

years they are discharged 250 mg twice a day.

Bacteria Resistance

Bacterial microorganisms are able to produce
resistance (immunity) to the action of antibiotics.
Macrolides are no exception. Bacteria in the spectrum
