Azasite is Prescribed to Treat Bacterial Conjunctivitis

As a broad-spectrum antibiotic, Azasite is able to treat your bacterial conjunctivitis over a 7-day period so there’s less risk that you will pass this eye infection on to others. Also called pink eye, this bacterial infection is considered contagious as long as symptoms are visible, or until 24 hours after treatment with an antibiotic has begun.

Azasite uses a delivery system called DuraSite which is meant to sustain and stabilize the release of this Azithromycin Solution onto your eyeball so the active ingredient remains on the ocular surface longer making your dosing less frequent. This makes patients more likely to follow dosing instructions as it is less of an inconvenience.

How Azasite Works to Treat Bacterial Conjunctivitis

Once the Azithromycin Ophthalmic Solution has been instilled in the affected eye or eyes, it will stop the bacteria from producing essential proteins that they require in order to grow and replicate. As a bacteriostatic medication, Azasite does not kill the bacteria outright, but they are unable to increase their numbers and begin to die off. Your immune system will help destroy any remaining bacteria. Azasite also has anti inflammatory properties that can help reduce the inflammatory response caused by the presence of the bacteria that could cause damage to eye tissue.

Before Instilling Azasite

Ask your doctor about the safety of using Azasite while you are pregnant, trying to become pregnant, or are breast feeding. Explain other medical conditions and allergies you have to your doctor and list all OTC and Rx meds you currently take or use, including herbal remedies and vitamin or dietary supplements, as this will help determine if Azasite is the right treatment for you.

Pink Eye Information

Pink eye can be caused by bacteria or a virus, both are contagious. As long as your doctor is certain you have a bacterial infection, Azasite will work great. If it is viral, you will have to wait out your symptoms until it clears up on its own as drugs will not treat the infection. This is a difficult infection when it involves children as their hygiene habits are less exciting than recess or nap time and hand washing is not monitored as well in daycare or school.

Proper Use of Azasite

Always wash hands before and after using Azasite and do not touch the dropper to your eye directly or you may contaminate the dropper. Do not share Azasite with anyone else or the infection may just be passed back and forth. If you wear contact lenses, remove them before treatment starts and wear glasses if possible as contacts may aggravate your symptoms and reinfect your eyes unless you change to new contacts when treatment is over. Do not drive or attempt any activities until after your vision clears up after each dose of Azasite.
