Stop Bacterial Infections with Rulid

Rulid belongs to a group of medications called macrolide antibiotics, which means that it prevents bacteria from growing and spreading throughout the body. Rulid may be prescribed to treat a variety of infections. Roxithromycin prevents the bacterial cell from carrying out essential functions that are necessary for life, (i.e. making the protein building blocks that make up the bacterial cell), which stops the bacteria from multiplying.

Rulid is available in its brand name form, as well as by its generic name, Roxithromycin. A valid prescription is needed to purchase Rulid. The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.

How Rulid Fights Bacteria

When taken as directed, Rulid inhibits bacterial protein synthesis, an essential step to be able to replicate. The bacteria can use the proteins they already possess, but they cannot grow in numbers and those that remain will die or be destroyed by your immune system.

Some Conditions Treated by Rulid

Rulid may be prescribed to treat any of the following bacterial infections that affect the respiratory system: acute pharyngitis; tonsillitis; sinusitis; acute bronchitis; pneumonia. Skin infections such as eczema, psoriasis or impetigo that has become infected may require treatment with Rulid. You will notice these infections have different symptoms, depending on where they located. In the respiratory tract, for example, you may notice coughing, wheezing, and a sore throat.

Infections of the urinary tract such as non-gonococcal urethritis may cause increased urination and burning during urination. Rulid may also be prescribed to treat dental infections such as gingivitis or sexually transmitted infections such as chlamydia. All of these conditions have one thing in common, though: namely, that they are caused by harmful bacteria. Rulid, like other antibiotics, does not work against viral infections such as flu.

Before You Start Taking Rulid

It is important for your doctor know if you have been diagnosed with myasthenia gravis, liver disease, kidney disease, or a heart rhythm disorder before you start taking Rulid. You will need to avoid several medications while taking Rulid. These include certain blood thinners, anti-depressant drugs, and cancer drugs, as well as magnesium-containing antacids, which can lead to negative interactions if combined.

Precautions for Rulid

You should avoid direct sunlight during treatment with Rulid since the medication may make you more susceptible to sunburns. Also, be sure to watch for bloody stools or diarrhea while taking Rulid, and tell your doctor immediately if they develop; do not take anti-diarrhea medication unless instructed to do so. It is important to take Rulid for the full course of treatment as prescribed by your doctor. If you stop taking an antibiotic part way through a course, the bacteria can become resistant to the antibiotic and will be harder to treat in future.
