Dear Birva,

Thanks for your query.

Azithral is an antibiotic nd should only be taken on prescription.

It is used in treating acne , the medicine is given for three consecutive days in a week for 4-6 weekd alongwith other acne creams and medications.

The drug shuould be taken empty stomach for best results and side effects include stomach upset.

I would request you to visit a qualified dermatologist for getting a cure to your acne.
