Pharmachologic effect:

Sitrolide is an antimicrobial drug of the macrolide group. Sitrolide contains azithromycin - azalide, which has high antimicrobial activity. Azithromycin creates high concentrations in the focus of inflammation. Strains of Streptococcus pyogenes, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Streptococcus agalactiae, Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus viridans, Streptococcus group F, C and G are sensitive to the action of the drug Zitrolide.
In addition, Azithromyk Peptostreptococcus spp. and Clostridium perfringens.
The drug Zitrolid is effective in diseases caused by Chlamydia trachomatis, Borrelia burgdoferi, Mycoplasma pneumoniae, Ureaplasma urealyticum, Treponema pallidum.
There is cross-resistance between macrolide antibiotics.
After oral administration, azithromycin is rapidly absorbed in the digestive tract. The active ingredient of the drug Zitrolid is stable in the acidic environment of the stomach. Eating reduces the bioavailability of azithromycin somewhat (bioavailability when taken on an empty stomach is 37%). Peak plasma concentration is reached within 2.5-3 hours.
Azithromycin penetrates well into tissues and biological fluids of the body, high concentrations are created in inflamed tissues (due to the ability of azithromycin to bind to phagocytes, which deliver the active substance to the localization sites of the infection). Despite the high concentrations of azithromycin in phagocytes, the drug Zitrolid has no significant effect on their function. After taking the last dose, therapeutic concentrations of azithromycin are maintained for 5-7 days.
Metabolized in the liver by de-methylation, azithromycin metabolites do not possess pharmacological activity.
Excreted in two phases, the half-life for the first phase is from 8 to 24 hours, the second phase - from 24 to 72 hours.

Indications for use:

Zitrolid used for the treatment of patients with infectious diseases caused by pathogens sensitive to azithromycin. In particularNitrolide prescribed for:

Zitrolid should be used with caution in patients with cardiac arrhythmias, as well as patients who receive drugs that extend the Q-T interval.

Interaction with other drugs:

When combined with azithromycin intake with food, ethyl alcohol and antacid agents containing compounds of magnesium and aluminum, a decrease in the absorption rate and bioavailability of azithromycin is noted.
With simultaneous use of macrolides with warfarin may increase the severity of the anticoagulant effect. If necessary, the combined use of azithromycin with warfarin should monitor blood clotting.
Sitrolide while taking increases plasma concentrations of digoxin.
Azithromycin in combination may increase the toxicity of ergotamine and dihydroergotamine.
The drug can reduce the clearance of triazolam and increase the severity of its pharmacological effects.
Plasma concentrations of unchanged carbamazepine, terfenadine, hexobarbital, cyclosporine, valproic acid, phenytoin, bromocriptine, ergot alkaloids, oral hypoglycemic agents, and dysopyramide and xanthine derivatives can be increased when combined with azythromycin, in a mode, a limit, and a limit is not applied to the level, a limit, a limit, and a limit is applied to the level, a limit, a limit, and a limit, a limit, and a limit of 33% and 16% of the rest of the rest of the distance limit will not be applied. metabolism of the above means).
