Thanks for your query.

CLARICIN contains Clarithromycin, this antibiotic is usually prescribed less. Hence you may not get it in most of the pharmacies.

I suggest you yo consult your treating doctor asking for an alternative antibiotic, serving the same purpose.

Please let me know if there are any other concerns.
