Hello dear ..

Thank you for your query.
Azithral contains the antibiotic Azithromycin.Its is used in a wide range of infections like respiratory tract infection, pneumonia, sinusitis, tonsillitis, skin infections etc.The dose of the medicine depends on the disease severity , age & body weight. In many cases Azithral is prescribed at the dose you mentioned.Please let me know the disease condition and your age & body weight for a more specific reply.

Please stay in touch with your treating physician and follow the dosage he prescribes.
Take care...

Dear thanks for choosing health care magic.The dose of antibiotic depends upon the body weight of patient.And according to that the dose may given as single dose or divided in 2 doses.So take the medicines as advised.The normal dose of average weight person in most of the condition is 500 mg once daily for 3-5 days.
