Compared to other antibiotics, Azit has a longer half life which means that it stays in the body for a long time because of which it is given once a day and for short span of time. Other antibiotics comparatively have a shorter half life and are usually given twice, thrice or four times a day.

Q. Can you get a yeast infection from taking Azit?

Some people may get a fungal or yeast infection known as thrush after taking Azit.
