Next, you'll hear from the doctor

Once you’ve entered your symptoms, a doctor or nurse practitioner will review your case. If they’re able to help, your visit will start; if they can’t help, you’ll be notified before your consultation begins and you won’t be charged. You’re only charged if you speak with a Maple doctor.

Most often, you’ll speak to your doctor or nurse practitioner over text, though they may request audio or video chat if it’ll help with your diagnosis.

Get your medication

You'll get a prescription right on Maple, so you can send it to any pharmacy for pickup, or you can have it shipped with free delivery.

In some cases, a prescription won’t be recommended by the doctor. They will let you know if this is the case. Doctors may also not be able to prescribe some medications in certain provinces or regions.

Note: Maple is not a pharmaceutical manufacturer, nor are we an online pharmacy. This means you'll need to buy the medication from the pharmacy itself once you have your prescription.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is clarithromycin (Biaxin) and how does it work?

Clarithromycin (Biaxin) is a medication that belongs to the class of drugs known as macrolide antibiotics.

A clarithromycin prescription works by targeting certain types of bacteria. It either kills them or prevents their growth, thereby eliminating its ability to continue spreading.

What are the uses for clarithromycin (Biaxin)?

Most commonly, if you receive a clarithromycin prescription online from a Maple doctor, it’ll be because you’re experiencing a bacterial infection.

The Biaxin prescription helps your body fight the infection, preventing it from spreading to other areas.

In some cases, a clarithromycin prescription may also be used alongside other medications to help treat duodenal ulcers that are caused by the H. pylori bacteria.

How do you use clarithromycin (Biaxin)?

Once you’ve met with a doctor from Maple and they’ve decided to give you a Biaxin prescription online, it will be available as a tablet, an extended release tablet or a powder to be added to an oral suspension liquid. These different types of medications must all be taken orally.

The type of Biaxin prescription given to you, the dosage, and the frequency of use will be determined by your doctor based on the type, location, and severity of the infection being treated.

This medication’s usually taken every 12 hours, with or without food. If indigestion occurs, taking your clarithromycin prescription with food or milk can help reduce nausea. Take this medication at regular intervals for it to be most effective.

If you’re taking a Biaxin prescription to fight an infection, make sure to take the entire prescription until it’s finished to avoid a possible relapse.

For those taking this medication to prevent a possible bacterial infection, take it exactly as directed by your doctor. Don’t stop taking your clarithromycin prescription without talking to your doctor about it first.

What are the side effects and risks of clarithromycin (Biaxin)?

In very rare cases, a clarithromycin prescription can cause a severe intestinal condition called clostridium difficile-associated diarrhea due to a type of resistant bacteria. This condition can occur weeks or even months after the treatment has been completed. Make sure to contact your doctor immediately if you’ve recently taken a Biaxin prescription and begin to experience:

  • Severe or persistent diarrhea
  • Severe stomach or abdominal pain/cramping
  • Blood or mucus in your stool

Allergic reactions to this medication are very rare, but can be identified by the following symptoms:

In rare cases, clarithromycin can cause QT prolongation, a medication condition that can affect heart rhythm. This is particularly prevalent in patients who have a history of heart problems or a family history of such issues.

Who should not take clarithromycin (Biaxin)?

Don’t use any opioid or anti-diarrhea medications if you’re experiencing any of the negative side effects associated with a Biaxin prescription. It could cause your side effects to worsen.

  • Kidney disease
  • Liver disease
  • Heart disease
  • Heart attacks
  • Myasthenia gravis (a muscle disease)

A clarithromycin prescription can cause other live bacterial immunizations to not function properly. You should avoid having any immunizations while taking this medication without first discussing the risks with your doctor.

For older patients and patients with low levels of magnesium or potassium in their blood, the risks of contracting QT prolongation due to clarithromycin are greater. Make sure to discuss possible risks with your doctor before starting a Biaxin prescription.

Pregnant women should avoid taking clarithromycin while pregnant without first discussing the risks with their doctor. This medication is known to pass through breast milk and should only be taken while breastfeeding after talking to a doctor.
