Sumamed: instructions for the use of tablets (500 \ 250) and suspensions (200)

Sumamed is an antibacterial agent of a wide range of effects. Antibiotic-azalide, represents a new subgroup of macrolides, the main component of which is azithromycin. The drug is available in tablets, capsules and in powder (it must then be diluted with water).

Pharmacological properties

The effect of azithromycin is associated with the inhibition of the production of an important protein structure of the pathogenic microbe. The main "working" substance is interwoven with the 50S-polyribosome, as a result of which the peptidranslokase is suppressed at the stage of protein formation from the amino acid on the matrix RNA. This leads to inhibition of growth and development of the microbe.

Azithromycin shows activity against gram (+) bacteria (provided that there is no resistance to erythromycin) and gram (-) bacteria (aerobes), anaerobes and other microorganisms (chlamydia, mycoplasmas, borrelia).


Sumamed - what helps?
