Roxithromycin Action Mechanism
Binding of Roxithromycin to the bacterial 50S ribosome subunit stops the translocation process of protein synthesis, which is a vital step in production of peptides. Roxithromycin thereby inhibits the synthesis of proteins in bacteria and prevents the progression of infection by hindering cell growth of bacteria.
Taking 150 mg of Roxithromycin either half an hour prior to or 2 hours after meal twice a day strengthens your immunity. While 2.5 mg to 5.0 mg per kg body weight is the normal standard dose of Roxithromycin in children, which should be consumed as two doses on daily basis.
Gram negative microbial infections are best treated by Roxithromycin and its ability to play a role as an effective anti-malarial medication is an added asset to its existing wide range of efficient features.
Roxithromycin is not the best drug for individuals allergic to any of its active or inactive components to relieve bacterial infections in them. Also people suffering from kidney or liver problems, heart diseases or blood disorders should never take Roxithromycin for treating various microbial complications.
