What is Arrow-Roxithromycin (Roxithromycin) used for?
Arrow-Roxithromycin (Roxithromycin) is an oral macrolide antibiotic prescribed to treat a wide variety of bacterial infections. It operates by destroying or slowing the reproduction of bacterial cells allowing the immune system to eliminate the infection. This makes it useful for treating bacterial infections of the skin, soft tissues, urinary tract, or airways. Your doctor may also prescribe this medication for the treatment of other unlisted conditions.

These doses should be swallowed with a large glass of water and may be taken with or without food, although a snack or meal is suggested before use if you get an upset stomach. Avoid crushing or splitting the medication prior to use as this may destroy or alter the effects of their contents.
