For the treatment of patients with mild to moderate infections caused by susceptible strains of the designated micro-organisms in the specific conditions listed below:

  • Upper respiratory tract infections (acute sinusitis, acute streptococcal pharyngitis/tonsillitis and acute otitis media in children).
  • Uncomplicated skin and skin structure infections.

Antimicrobial agents used in high doses for short periods of times to treat non-gonococcal urethritis may mask or delay the symptoms of incubating gonorrhea or syphilis.

Appropriate antimicrobial therapy and follow-up tests for these diseases should be initiated if infection is confirmed.
  • Pelvic inflammatory disease in patients who require initial intravenous therapy.
  • Prevention of gastroduodenal ulcers induced by non-selective non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) in patients at risk with a need for continuous NSAID treatment.
