Possible Interaction: Quinine and Azithromycin



Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

Our in vitro data confirm that azithromycin in combination with artemisinin derivatives or quinine exerts additive to synergistic interactions, shows no cross-sensitivity with traditional antimalarials, and has substantial antimalarial activity on its own.
With overall mean fractional inhibitory concentrations of 0.84 (95% confidence interval [CI] = 0.77 to 1.08) and 0.78 (95% CI = 0.72 to 0.98), the interactions between azithromycin and dihydroartemisinin, as well as quinine , were classified as additive, with a tendency toward synergism.
