    Azithromycin is an antibiotic that works relatively quickly to treat bacterial infections. When taken orally, azithromycin is rapidly absorbed, with peak concentrations reached within 2-3 hours. It then concentrates in tissues like the lungs, liver and prostate, where it persists for several days.

    For most bacterial infections, Azithromycin 250 mg starts reducing symptoms and clearing the infection within 1-3 days of starting treatment. However, it may take 5-7 days for symptoms to fully resolve. Azithromycin is usually taken once daily for 3-5 days, depending on the type and severity of infection. The quick absorption and tissue penetration of azithromycin allow for shorter treatment durations compared to other antibiotics. Patients should complete the full course as prescribed, even if they feel better, to ensure the infection is fully cleared.
