Erythromycin EC (erythromycin) is a macrolide antibiotic useful in treating or preventing a variety of bacterial infections. It is often used in patients who are unable to take penicillin.

The EC in this product's name stands for enteric coating, which is applied to some medications to prevent tablets or capsule contents from breaking down in the highly acidic conditions of the stomach. Instead the coating allows the medication to pass through the stomach intact so it may be absorbed in the small intestine. EC is not the same as extended-release, which may be indicated with EX or ER.

Outside of hospital settings most people buy Erythromycin EC in tablets or capsules. Oral solutions may be prepared for young children or patients who have difficulty swallowing; oral formulas will not have the EC tag. The medication is available under a number of brand names, and it's also possible to buy Erythromycin EC as a generic in most places.

When to Use Erythromycin EC

In adults Erythromycin EC (and other versions of erythromycin) is generally given only when penicillin not an option, due to hypersensitivity of the patient or unavailability of penicillin. There are exceptions, however; in certain gastrointestinal disorders, for example, erythromycin may be the preferred treatment.

The antibiotic can be used in a wide range of infections:

  • Lower respiratory tract infections such as diphtheria, pneumonia, or whooping cough;
  • Upper respiratory tract infections such as sinusitis, tonsillitis, or laryngitis;
  • Sexually transmitted diseases such as syphilis or chlamydia;
  • Skin infections such as abscesses, acne, or cellulitis;
  • Eye infections such as blepharitis;
  • Gastrointestinal infections such as cholecystitis or pelvic inflammatory disease;
  • Oral infections such as gingivitis.

Erythromycin EC is also used as a prophylactic treatment to prevent infection, such as after surgery or in cases of severe burns. It is the standard treatment in many areas to prevent initial attacks of rheumatic fever.

The medication may be used in children, infants and newborns to treat a range of common childhood issues, such as otis media (ear infections). Dosage, frequency and duration of treatment should be determined by a doctor in these cases.

Treatment Overview

Treatment often varies to some extent based on individual factors, including the type of infection, its severity, age, weight and so forth. In otherwise healthy adults, treatment is typically as follows:

  • 250 mg should be taken 4 times per day, spaced evenly apart.
  • Alternatively, 500 mg may be taken twice a day.
  • Food is optional but may reduce stomach-related side effects.
  • Treatment may last 1 to 3 weeks, with 2 weeks being most common.

Dosage may be raised in severe infections as long as 4 g per day is not exceeded. Treatment should continue for several days after all symptoms of infection have disappeared to ensure all traces of bacteria are destroyed.
