effect

  • Works by inhibiting the metabolism of the bacteria and thus their propagation.
  • The agent is effective against several different bacterial species than ordinary penicillin and is thus broad-spectrum.

Pharmaceutical forms

tablets. 1 tablet (film-coated) contains 500 mg of erythromycin (as stearate). Abboticin® Novum, tablets. 1 tablet (film-coated) 500 mg erythromycin (like ethyl succinate).

Granules for oral suspension. 1 ml ready-mixed suspension contains 40 mg or 100 mg erythromycin (like ethyl succinate). Powder for solution for infusion. 1 vial contains 1 g of erythromycin (like lactobionate).


Special warnings

Abboticin® should be used with caution:

  • In any treatment with an antibiotic, the bacteria may become insensitive (resistant) to the used agent and any other antibiotics. Abboticin® is broad-spectrum, and the risk of development of resistance is therefore greater than with ordinary penicillin.
  • You will often notice an improvement already after two days, but you must continue treatment after the doctor's instructions.
  • In case of malfunctioning liver.
  • The rare muscular myasthenia gravis may be exacerbated.

Using other medicines

It is important to inform your doctor about all the medicines you are taking.

    • bromocriptine (anti-Parkinson's disease)
    • certain cholesterol lowering agents (atorvastatin, lovastatin, simvastatin)
    • certain means of organ transplantation (everolimus, siolimus, tacrolimus)
    • certain fungicides (fluconazole and itraconazole)
    • pimozide (antidiabetic agent)
    • ebastin (antihistamine)
    • ergotamine (migraine).
  • Abboticin® may increase the effect of:
    • alfentanil (analgesic)
    • certain tranquilizers (alprazolam and buspirone)
    • bromocriptine (anti-Parkinson's disease)
    • carbamazepine (epilepsy)
    • ciclosporin (agent for organ transplantation)
    • felodipine (high blood pressure)
    • glucocorticoids (adrenal gland hormone)
    • quetiapine (anti-psychosis)
    • sleepers (midazolam, triazolam and zopicloin)
    • theophylline (asthma agent).
  • Abboticin® can rarely increase the effect of:
    • digoxin (cardiac agent)
    • warfarin (blood thinning).
  • Abboticin® may reduce the effect of other types of antibiotics (penicillins and cephalosporins).
  • Concomitant use of voriconazole (fungicide) may affect ekg.
  • At the concomitant use of phenprocoumon (anticoagulant), additional blood samples are taken at the beginning and end of the combination treatment.
  • Co-administration with vinblastine (cell-killers) increases the risk of side effects from vinblastine.
  • Concomitant use of sertraline (anti-depression) may cause psychiatric side effects.
