Drug Mode of Action ::  

Clarithromycin inhibits protein synthesis by binding to 50s ribosomal subunits of susceptible organisms. It has activity against susceptible streptococci and staphylococci as well as other species including B. catarrhalis, L. spp, C. trachomatis and U. urealyticum.

Drug Interactions ::

Reduced efficacy w/ CYP3A inducers (e.g. phenytoin, carbamazepine). Strong inducers of CYP450 system (e.g. efavirenz, rifampicin) may accelerate metabolism, thus lower plasma levels of clarithromycin. Inhibition of metabolism w/ ritonavir. Torsades de pointes may result from concomitant quinidine or disopyramide. Increased phosphodiesterase inhibitor exposure w/ sildenafil, tadalafil or vardenafil. Increased risk of digoxin toxicity. Decreased concentration of zidovudine. Concomitant use w/ atazanavir, itraconazole or saquinavir may result to bi-directional drug interactions. Hypotension, bradyarrhythmias, and lactic acidosis may result when taken w/ verapamil. Increased risk of myopathy, including rhabdomyolysis w/ HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors. Increased risk of hypoglycaemia w/ oral hypoglycaemic drugs (e.g. pioglitazone) and insulin. Risk of serious haemorrhage and elevation of INR and prothrombin time w/ oral anticoagulants. Increased ototoxicity w/ aminoglycosides. Increased and prolonged sedation w/ triabenzodiazepines (e.g. midazolam). Potentially Fatal: Concurrent use w/ ergot alkaloids (e.g. ergotamine or dihydroergotamine) is associated w/ acute ergot toxicity characterised by vasospasm and ischaemia of the extremities. Concomitant use w/ astemizole, cisapride, pimozide and terfenadine may result in QT prolongation or ventricular cardiac arrhythmia.
