What is Zithromax
Zithromax a drug developed by Phizer INC. also known as Z-pack was introduced on the market as an alternative antibiotic that only needed to be taken for 5 days. Most other antibiotics on the market need to be taken for over 2 weeks. This decrease in the amount of days needed to complete the medication is what gave rise to its fame. With an estimated 55.3 million prescriptions written last year, it is unknown how many people may be affected from a Zithromax heart problem.
