For azithromycin to work well, a certain amount needs to be in your body at all times. Potential Drug-Drug Interaction with Macrolides Interactions with digoxin, colchicine or phenytoin have not been reported in clinical trials with azithromycin.Unconfirmed epidemiologic evidence indicates that the Summary of Use during Lactation Because might be increased by maternal use in breastmilk and use in infants in higher doses, it would not have questioned this relationship in breastfed infants.
No specific drug interaction studies have been performed to evaluate potential drug-drug interaction. However, drug interactions have been observed with other macrolide products.
Until further data are developed regarding drug interactions when digoxin, colchicine or phenytoin are used with azithromycin careful monitoring of patients is advised. Developmental toxicity studies with azithromycin in rats, mice, and rabbits showed no drug-induced fetal malformations at doses up to 3, and 1 times, respectively, an adult human daily dose of 600 mg based on body surface area.
The estimated background risk of major birth defects and miscarriage for the indicated populations is unknown.
All pregnancies have a background risk of birth defect, loss, or other adverse outcomes.
In the U. Data Human Data Available data from published observational studies, case series, and case reports over several decades do not suggest an increased risk for major birth defects, miscarriage, or adverse maternal or fetal outcomes with azithromycin use in pregnant women.
Limitations of these data include the lack of randomization and inability to control for confounders such as underlying maternal disease and maternal use of concomitant medications.
Based on body surface area, this dose is approximately 3 rats and 2 mice times an adult human daily dose of 600 mg. Maternal toxicity reduced food consumption and body weight gain; increased stress at parturition was observed at the higher dose.
