After Changing The Zithromax Warning Label Should The Food And Drug Administration Re-evaluate Other Drug Labels?

March 27, 2013

When you’re sick with an infection, chances are you’ve been prescribed azithromycin. This is also known as Zithromax, Zmax and Z-Pak.

Zithromax comes in both tablet and liquid form and is usually taken for up to five days. This drug is used for infections of the ears, lungs, sinuses, skin, throat and even for the reproductive organs.

Zithromax is one of the most common prescriptions written each year! That’s why a recent study done by the New England Journal of Medicine surprised many consumers. The study found small increases in cardiovascular deaths among people treated with Zithromax compared to others taking amoxicillin or taking nothing at all.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has developed a new warning label for Pfizer who manufactures Zithromax. The new warning label is a precautionary method and states that the drug can have cardiovascular risks.

With so many new drugs produced each year, should labeling techniques of products be changed or reevaluated?

Utilizing the label industry, pharmacies and the FDA have been able to help prevent misuse of drugs in recent years. Many different industries have turned to the label industry to label their manufactured items so that consumers are fully aware of the pros and cons of using specific products.
