Zithromax, also known as azithromycin, is an antibiotic used to treat bacterial infections in children and adults for problems such as tonsillitis, pneumonia, strep throat, and upper respiratory infections. Manufactured by Pfizer, Zithromax has been linked to cases of liver damage.
Because Zithromax is a powerful antibiotic, it is usually only prescribed for short periods of time (usually less than 5 days). It should never be taken longer than recommended by a physician. In 2000, the Food and Drug Administration added a warning about possible liver toxicity to Zithromax's label. However, the drug is still on the market.
If you, or a loved one, have been harmed by taking Zithromax, you may be able to receive compensation for your injuries. Please contact us today.
