Zithromax contains the active ingredient azithromycin, which is a type of medicine called the macrolide antibiotic. Azithromycin acts by preventing bacteria from producing proteins that are essential for them. Without these proteins, bacteria cannot grow or replicate. Therefore, azithromycin stops the spread of the infection and reduces symptoms such as pain and fever. You can buy it at RXShopMD.
