More info


Sumamed Dispersible Tablets is a bacteriostatic macrolide-azalide antibiotic. Possesses a wide range of antimicrobial action. The mechanism of action of azithromycin is associated with the suppression of microbial cell protein synthesis. By binding to the 50S subunit of the ribosome, it inhibits peptide translocation at the translation stage and inhibits protein synthesis, slowing the growth and reproduction of bacteria. It has a bactericidal effect in high concentrations. It has activity against a number of gram-positive, gram-negative, anaerobes, intracellular and other microorganisms. Microorganisms may initially be resistant to the action of the antibiotic or may become resistant to it.

Precautionary measures

In case of missing a single dose of the drug - the missed dose should be taken as early as possible, and the next - with interruptions of 24 hours. Sumamed should be taken at least 1 hour before or 2 hours after taking antacids. Sumamed should be used with caution in patients with mild to moderate hepatic impairment due to the possibility of the development of fulminant hepatitis and severe hepatic insufficiency.If there are symptoms of abnormal liver function, such as rapidly increasing asthenia, jaundice, dark urine, bleeding tendency, hepatic encephalopathy, Sumamed therapy should be discontinued and a functional study of the liver should be performed. In case of impaired renal function of mild to moderate severity (CC> 40 ml / min) Sumamed drug therapy should be carried out with caution under the control of the state of the kidney function. As with the use of other antibacterial drugs, Sumamed should follow the therapy It doesn’t regularly examine patients for the presence of immune microorganisms and signs of the development of superinfections, including Fungal. Sumamed should not be used for longer courses than specified in the instructions, because The pharmacokinetic properties of azithromycin allow us to recommend a short and simple dosing regimen. There is no data on the possible interaction between azithromycin and ergotamine and dihydroergotamine derivatives, but due to the development of ergotism with the simultaneous use of macrolides with ergotamine and dihydroergotamine derivatives, this combination is not recommended. development of pseudomembranous colitis caused by Clostridium difficile, both in the form of mild diarrhea and severe colitis. With the development of antibiotic-associated diarrhea while taking the drug Sumamed, as well as 2 months after the end of therapy, pseudomembranous colitis should be excluded. When treated with macrolides, incl. azithromycin, prolonged cardiac repolarization and QT interval were observed, increasing the risk of developing cardiac arrhythmias, including arrhythmias of the "pirouette" type. Care should be taken when using Sumamed in patients with pro-arrhythmogenic factors (especially in elderly patients), including with congenital or acquired lengthening of the QT interval, in patients taking antiarrhythmic drugs of classes IA (quinidine, procainamide), III (dofetilide, amiodarone and sotalol), cisapride, terfenadine, antipsychotics (pimozide), antidepressants (citalopram), fluoroquinolones levofloxacin), in patients with impaired water and electrolyte balance, especially in the case of hypokalemia or hypomagnesemia, clinically significant bradycardia,arrhythmias of the heart or severe heart failure. The use of the drug Sumamed can trigger the development of myasthenic syndrome or exacerbate myasthenia. The effect on the ability to drive vehicles and control mechanisms and the speed of psychomotor reactions.

Interaction with other drugs

Antacid drugsAntacid drugs do not affect the bioavailability of azithromycin, but reduce Cmax in the blood by 30%, so Sumamed should be taken at least 1 hour before or 2 hours after taking these drugs and food. Cetirizine is a simultaneous use for 5 days in healthy Azithromycin volunteers with cetirizine (20 mg) did not lead to pharmacokinetic interactions and a significant change in the QT interval. Didanosine (didpoxyinosine) Simultaneous use of azithromycin (1200 mg / day) and didanosine (400 mg / day) in 6 HIV-infected pa no changes in the pharmacokinetic parameters of didanosine compared with the placebo group. Digoxin (P-glycoprotein substrates) Simultaneous use of macrolide antibiotics, incl. azithromycin, with P-glycoprotein substrates, such as digoxin, leads to an increase in serum P-glycoprotein substrate concentration. Thus, with simultaneous use of azithromycin and digoxin, it is necessary to take into account the possibility of increasing the concentration of digoxin in the blood serum. kidney excretion of zidovudine or its glucuronide metabolite. However, the use of azithromycin caused an increase in the concentration of phosphorylated zidovudine, a clinically active metabolite in peripheral blood mononuclear cells. The clinical significance of this fact is unclear. Azitromycin weakly interacts with cytochrome P450 isoenzymes. It was not revealed that azithromycin is involved in the pharmacokinetic interaction similar to erythromycin and other macrolides. Azithromycin is not an inhibitor and inducer of the cytochrome P450 system. atorvastatin (10 mg daily) and azithromycin (500 mg daily) n Atorvastatin caused changes in plasma concentrations (based inhibition assay MMC-CoA reductase).However, in the post-registration period, there were separate reports of cases of rhabdomyolysis in patients receiving azithromycin and statins at the same time. Carbamazepine In pharmacokinetic studies involving healthy volunteers, no significant effect was found on the concentration of carbamazepine and its active metabolite in the blood plasma of patients receiving azithromycin simultaneously. studies of the effect of a single dose of cimetidine on azithromycin pharmacokinetics revealed no changes in pharmacoqui YETİK azithromycin, cimetidine, subject to application 2 hours before azitromitsina.Antikoagulyanty indirect (coumarin derivatives) The pharmacokinetic studies azithromycin had no effect on the anticoagulant effect of a single dose of 15 mg warfarin received healthy volunteers. The potentiation of the anticoagulant effect has been reported after the simultaneous use of azithromycin and indirect anticoagulants (coumarin derivatives). Despite the fact that a causal relationship has not been established, consideration should be given to the need for frequent monitoring of prothrombin time when azithromycin is used in patients who receive oral anticoagulants of indirect action (coumarin derivatives). Cyclosporine In a pharmacokinetic study involving healthy volunteers who took 3 days azithromycin (500 mg / day once), and then cyclosporine (10 mg / kg / day once), there was a significant increase in plasma Cmax and AUC0-5 cyclosporine on. Caution should be exercised with the simultaneous use of these drugs. If necessary, the simultaneous use of these drugs, should be monitored concentrations of cyclosporine in the blood plasma and adjust the dose accordingly. Efavirenz Simultaneous use of azithromycin (600 mg / day once) and efavirenz (400 mg / day) daily for 7 days did not cause any clinically significant pharmacokinetic interaction. Fluconazole Simultaneous use of azithromycin (1200 mg once) did not change the pharmacokinetics of fluconazole (800 mg once). The total exposure and T1 / 2 azithromycin did not change with simultaneous use of fluconazole, however, a decrease in azithromycin Cmax (by 18%) was observed,which had no clinical significance. Indinavir Simultaneous use of azithromycin (1200 mg once) did not cause a statistically significant effect on the pharmacokinetics of indinavir (800 mg 3 times a day for 5 days). Methylprednisolone Azithromycin does not significantly affect the pharmacokinetics of methylprednisolone. mg) and nelfinavir (750 mg 3 times / day) causes an increase in Css azithromycin in serum. No clinically significant side effects were observed, and dose adjustment of azithromycin when used simultaneously with nelfinavir is not required. Rifabutin Simultaneous use of azithromycin and rifabutin does not affect the concentration of each of the drugs in the blood serum. With simultaneous use of azithromycin and rifabutin, neutropenia has sometimes been observed. Despite the fact that neutropenia was associated with the use of rifabutin, a causal relationship between the use of azithromycin and rifabutin and neutropenia has not been established. Sildenafil When used in healthy volunteers, no evidence of the effect of azithromycin (500 mg / day for 3 days) on AUC and Cmax of sildenafil or its major circulating metabolite. Terfenadine In pharmacokinetic studies, no evidence of interaction between azithromycin and terfenadine was obtained. It was reported on isolated cases where the possibility of such an interaction could not be completely excluded, but there was not a single concrete proof that such an interaction took place. It was found that the simultaneous use of terfenadine and macrolides can cause arrhythmia and lengthening of the QT interval. trimethoprim / sulfamethoxazole with azithromycin showed no significant effect on Cmax, the total exposure Theological or renal excretion of trimethoprim or sulfamethoxazole. Serum azithromycin concentrations were consistent with those found in other studies.
