How do I take clarithromycin?
Always follow your health professional’s instructions for taking clarithromycin. They will advise you about how many doses are needed each day, and how long to take clarithromycin for.
If your symptoms don’t improve after a few days of taking clarithromycin, or your symptoms get worse, see your doctor.
Tips for being medicinewise with antibiotics
Take your antibiotics at the right time and for as long as directed, even if you are feeling better.
Don’t keep unused antibiotics for another time — return leftover pills to your pharmacy for disposal.
Don’t share antibiotics with others — they may have a different infection and this can lead to antibiotic resistance.
The consumer medicines information (CMI) leaflet for your antibiotic can provide more information about how to take your medicine.
