Klacid Eco Packaging
Available for more than 20 years in nearly 100 countries, Abbott’s Klacid (clarithromycin) is the number one macrolide antibiotic in the world. Abbott is now expanding the availability of Klacid in a more ecologically-friendly product package that uses recycled materials. The environment-friendly packaging is already available in a dozen countries, and more countries in the near future. Klacid was chosen as the first established pharmaceutical product to convert to this new recycled packaging because of how frequently it is prescribed and dispensed for several different bacterial infections. Along with information about the recycled packaging, healthcare providers will also be reminded to educate patients about the responsible use of antibiotics to prevent immunity resistance to these medifor more ecologically-friendly productscations.
Abbott’s clarithromycin is available under several brand names around the world including Abbotic, Biaxin, Biclar, Clarith, Cyllind, Heliclar, Klacid, Klaricid, Kofron, Maclar, Mavid, Naxy, and Zeclar.
