Frequently asked questions about erythromycin

What is erythromycin?

Erythromycin is an antibiotic medication used for the treatment of bacterial infections in various areas of the body. This drug is commonly administered via an extended oral capsule, oral tablet, or suspension (liquid). The specific method of administration will depend on the infection being treated.

Erythromycin is an antibiotic, which means that it is ineffective against viral, parasitic, and fungal infections. This medication is prescribed to treat existing infections, and should not be used as a preventative measure against bacterial infections. Doing so can actually make you more resistant to antibiotic treatment.

What is erythromycin used to treat?

Erythromycin is an antibiotic, meaning that it is indicated for use against bacterial infections. Commonly prescribed as an oral tablet, erythromycin is primarily used as a treatment for conditions such as:
- Pneumonia
- Bronchitis
- Legionnaire's disease (a type of lung infection)
- Pertussis (whooping cough)
- Diptheria (bacterial infection of the throat)
- Skin infections
- Bacterial urinary infections
- Ear infections
- Bacterial STIs (like syphilis)

How does erythromycin work?

Erythromycin is classified as a macrolide antibiotic, meaning that it is indicated for use against bacterial infections in various areas of the body. These drugs work by preventing certain proteins in bacteria cells from synthesizing. This action essentially kills harmful bacteria cells and keeps infection from growing.

Because erythromycin is an antibiotic, it is ineffective against viral, parasitic, and fungal infections. In addition, this drug is used to treat existing infections. Using erythromycin as a preventative measure against infections can actually make your body resistant to the drug and increase your likelihood of developing one of the conditions listed above.

What are the common side effects of erythromycin?

Erythromycin has been shown to cause some mild side effects. If these adverse effects do not go away within a few days, talk to your health care provider.


Common side effects include:
- Upset stomach
- Diarrhea
- Vomiting
- Loss of appetite


This is not a complete list of possible adverse effects.

If you experience an unexplained rash, swelling, difficulty breathing, or itchy skin while taking erythromycin, seek medical attention immediately. These are early signs of a potentially serious adverse reaction to the medication reaction.

Talk to your health care provider about any medication you are currently taking, or any medical conditions you have been previously diagnosed with before starting treatment with erythromycin.

What is the typical starting dose of erythromycin?

Erythromycin is commonly administered as an oral tablet or liquid (suspension). For bacterial infections in adults, a 333 mg oral tablet should be taken every 8 hours. If erythromycin has been supplied as a suspension liquid, 400 mg should be taken every 6 hours. This dosage may increase, depending on the severity of the infection. Dosage for children will depend on their body weight and age.

Do not discontinue the use of erythromycin unless instructed to do so by your doctor. Doing so can cause the bacterial infection to recur. Additionally, do not increase your daily dosage of erythromycin unless given a specific order by your doctor. Follow the full course of treatment and take the medication exactly as prescribed.
