Shipping Update

We are now seeing improvements in our shipping times. However, things are not yet back to normal and there are still some delays occurring.

These delays are temporary, and we thank the shipping and delivery personnel who are working hard for all of us during this global crisis.

General Information on Ketek

The generic name for Ketek is Telithromycin and it is classified as a ketolide antibiotic, which is used for treating mild respiratory infections. Telithromycin or Ketek prevents the growth of bacteria by interfering with the protein synthesis of those bacteria. It is also used for treatment of various medical conditions caused by bacteria, like pneumonia. If you have been prescribed this medication, then you can buy Ketek from a pharmacy. However, you must keep in mind that it does not treat viral infections.

Side effects of Ketek

Side effects of Ketek vary from mild symptoms to severe medical conditions. The severity of the symptoms also depends on the strength of the immune system of the patient being administered Ketek doses. Some of the most common side effects include vomiting, nausea, headache, mild form of diarrhea, strange taste or change in taste, and anxiety. These mild symptoms can persist or worsen like anxiety leading to depression. In such a scenario, you should consult a medical professional or your doctor immediately.

Ketek is prescribed to prevent bacterial growth but this doesn't mean it can be administered for treating any bacterial infection. It is recommended that patients should not buy Ketek to treat any other type of bacterial infection other than what it has been prescribed for. Patients are also advised against over dosing as it can create complications especially for pregnant women or breastfeeding mothers.

Ketek or Telithromycin should not be administered along with a drug that is metabolized using cytochrome P450 3A4 enzyme, as the resulting interaction can be quite severe. Ketek also interacts with cisapride, pimozide, and Colchicine. If a patient is on other benzodiazepines treatment, then administering Ketek can lead to interactions as well.
