What is Azyter?

Azyter is a branded antibacterial medication. It’s predominantly used to treat bacterial eye infections such as conjunctivitis. It should be administered directly into your eye three times a day.

Eye infections are an unpleasant experience. They’re caused by a bacterial or viral infection that has had direct contact with the eye. The most common eye infection is conjunctivitis. Its symptoms commonly include inflammation of the eye, the appearance of pus or mucus, a burning sensation in your eye or your eye having a red and puffy appearance.

How does Azyter work?

The active ingredient in Azyter eye drops (azithromycin) targets and attacks the bacteria responsible for your eye infection. Azithromycin is an antibiotic that stops bacteria from creating an essential protein that it needs to multiply.

Without this protein, the bacteria start to weaken and become unstable, and your body’s immune system is able to kill them off. Once the bacteria is taken care of by your body’s defences, your symptoms should start to improve.

What doses of Azyter are there?

There is only one dose of Azyter available as an eye drop: 15mg/g. You can get different doses of Azyter, but these come as tablets. Eye drops are recommended over tablets for eye infections. So if you’ve got conjunctivitis or a similar infection, the 15mg/g dose is the one that you can expect to receive.

Regardless of which dose you are prescribed, it’s important that you take your treatment as instructed by our clinician. The eye drops should only need to be taken for three days, but the effects of the treatment will continue for a little while after.

How to use Azyter

Like with all treatments, you should always follow the instructions that are given to you by the prescriber. If you have any questions or concerns, you can sign in to your account and send our clinician a message. Or you can refer to the package information leaflet that comes with your medication.

The recommended way to take Azyter is by following the below steps:

  • thoroughly wash your hands before and after using the treatment
  • tilt your head upwards and hold the eye drop above your eye. You may want to hold your eyelid open with your thumb and forefinger
  • apply one drop of the treatment into each infected eye. Try not to touch your eye with the tip of the dropper. Instead, hold it slightly above the eyeball
  • throw the eye drop away after use. Do not use the same eye dropper twice

How long does it take Azyter to work?

The course lasts for three days and you should feel a positive effect within this time. It will still continue to work for a little while after the course is over, so some of the positive effects might not show until after the treatment is finished. Evidence is based on a clinical study that showed 89% of patients who used Azyter to treat their eye infections made a full recovery in three days.

What should I do if I make a mistake when using Azyter?

If you forget to take a dose of Azyter, it’s important that you don’t take twice the amount to make up for a missed dose. If you take too much of this treatment then we recommend contacting our clinician for further advice.

FAQ: Azyter

Have something specific you want to know? Search our info below, or ask our experts a question if you can’t find what you’re looking for.

How is Azyter different from other treatments for conjunctivitis?

Answer:
The key difference between Azyter and other eye treatments is that Azyter is an antibiotic. This means that it’s more suitable for bacterial infections. Some eye drops contain antihistamines which are good for allergic reactions. Conjunctivitis can be caused by allergic reactions as well as infections, so the treatment that you are given will depend on the cause of your infection.

Is Azyter similar to any other treatments?

Answer:
Azyter has the same active ingredient as another branded antibiotic treatment called Zithromax. Zithromax comes as a tablet rather than an eye drop and is used to treat other bacterial infections like chlamydia, so it is unlikely that you would be prescribed this for conjunctivitis. Azithromycin (the active ingredient in Azyter) is also available as a generic (unbranded) eye solution, which will be a little bit cheaper than its branded equivalents.

How effective is Azyter?

Answer:
A clinical study on Azyter as a treatment for bacterial conjunctivitis showed that it’s highly effective at treating the infection. The study was conducted with 282 patients from mixed demographics. 89% of the patients were cured of their condition after taking Azyter as a treatment. This outweighed tobramycin, which cured 78% of the patients who used it as treatment.

Do I need a prescription for Azyter?

Answer:
Yes. All antibiotics require a prescription, even the ones that come as eye drops. This is to help monitor the infection as it can become dangerous if it gets worse. Our clinician will need to make sure that it’s a safe and suitable treatment for you to use.

Why should I buy Azyter online with Treated?

Answer:
Eye infections are painful. They can make visibility hard and even affect our self-confidence if they become noticeable. We can recommend treatments tailored for you, and from our options, you can choose your medication.
