Active Ingredient: Roxithromycin

Roxithromycin is a semisynthetic macrolide antibiotic. It has a half life of 12 hours in healthy adults, 27 hours in elderly patients and 20 hours in children. Its breakdown is slowed by poor kidney and liver function. It is eliminated in the body from the faeces, urine and from the lungs.



If you are about to start taking any new medicine, tell your doctor and pharmacist that you are taking Rulide.

Tell all the doctors, dentists and pharmacists who are treating you that you are taking Rulide.

Do not stop taking your tablets because you are feeling better, unless advised by your doctor.

If you do not complete the full course of Rulide prescribed by your doctor, all of the bacteria causing your infection may not be killed. These bacteria may continue to grow and multiply so that your infection may not clear completely or it may return and you may resistant to the drug.

Do not give Rulide to anyone else, even if they have the same condition as you.

Do not use Rulide to treat any other complaints unless your doctor tells you to.

Keep your tablets or pills of Rulide in the blister pack until it is time to take them. If you take the tablets out of the blister pack, they may not keep well.

Keep Rulide in a cool dry place where the temperature stays below 30°C. 

Do not store it or any other medicine in the bathroom or near a sink. Do not leave it in the car or on window sills.

Heat and dampness can destroy Rulide medicines.

Keep it where children cannot reach it.

If your doctor tells you to stop taking the tablets or the tablets have passed their expiry date, ask your pharmacist what to do with any tablets that are left over.

If the symptoms of your infection do not improve within a few days, or if they become worse, tell your doctor.

If you get severe diarrhoea tell your doctor, pharmacist or nurse immediately. Do this even if it occurs several weeks after Rulide has been stopped.

Diarrhoea may mean that you have a serious condition affecting your bowel. You may need urgent medical care.

Do not take any diarrhoea medicine without first checking with your doctor.

If you get a sore, white mouth or tongue while taking or soon after stopping Rulide, tell your doctor or pharmacist. Also tell your doctor or pharmacist if you get vaginal itching or discharge.

This may mean you have a fungal/yeast infection called thrush. Sometimes the use of Rulide allows fungi/yeast to grow and the above symptoms to occur. Rulide does not work against fungi/yeast.

Tell your doctor or pharmacist as soon as possible if you do not feel well while you are taking Rulide.

Rulide helps many people with bacterial infections, but it may have unwanted side effects in some people. All medicines can have side effects. Sometimes they are serious, most of the time they are not. Medical treatment may be required for some of the side effects.

Ask your doctor or pharmacist to answer any questions you may have regarding side effects.
