I have recently been prescribed with azithromycin. Can I still take levocetirizine while taking the azithromycin?
Yes, you can take both medications on the same day. It would be best to take azithromycin in morning after your meal and your levocetirizine at bedtime if ever it causes you to be sleepy. Otherwise, you can take it at any time of the day. There is no significant interactions between these two medications.
