single-dose or three-day regimens of Zithromax (azithromycin) for acute otitis media in children

You might start seeing Rxs for single-dose or three-day regimens of Zithromax (azithromycin) for acute otitis media in children.

Health Canada is considering these short regimens for otitis. They were just approved in the U.S.

Children can take 10 mg/kg/day of Zithromax for 3 days...or a single dose of 30 mg/kg. This means kids will take 150 mg to 1500 mg over 3 days...or all in one dose.
