Azithromycin, a macrolide antibiotic, is safe to take with Zarbee's cough medicine products. There is no need to separate doses of each. It is important to start the antibiotic as soon as possible to combat your daughter's infection.
Zarbee's cough syrup products do not contain the commonly used over the counter drugs such as dextromethorphan (a cough suppressant) or guaifenesin (expectorant). Instead, they use more natural ingredients such as elderberry and honey. Honey however, is not an ingredient in the baby cough products.
The Zarbee's baby cough syrup in particular contains the following ingredients:
- Agave syrup
- Ivy leaf extract
- Natural flavors
- Potassium sorbate
None of the above ingredients have listed or reported interactions with azithromyin.
Some of the Zarbee's nighttime formulas do contain melatonin, but those are considered safe to use with azithromycin as well.
You can feel comfortable dosing your daughter's antibiotic prescription (azithromycin) safely with Zarbee's cough syrup products.
