Abstract

Azithromycin is an antibiotic, member of macrolide family. According to our survey study it is effective against bacterial and inflammatory disease (e.g.: sore throat). Our study do not promote azithromycin to be prescribed in Covid-19 pandemic as it is antiviral disease and number of patients has been prescribing azithromycin. When azithromycin was prescribed along with hydroxychloroquine, it showed effective in early stage in some patient while others has to change the prescription, hence use of azithromycin should stopped in covid-19 pandemic to avoid side effect of antibiotic. Nutraceutical foods has medicinal effect on health of human beings. It can prevent and treat disease, it consist of food supplements like, probiotics and prebiotics, vitamins, herbal product, zinc, minerals and carbohydrates etc. Due to its naturally extracted food material, it has no side effect in many case and possess multiple therapeutic effect with lacking unwanted side effect which, trends consumer interest. It has also been in interest of antibacterial, antiviral and anti-inflammatory properties of nutraceutical, during covid-19 pandemic. Nutraceuticals does not have these properties but it promotes these activities indirectly by inducing increase in immune response. We conducted an online survey among 382 residents of India using quota sampling for gender, age and regional distribution. Data on Azithromycin consumption during pandemic, Use of Nutraceuticals for symptomatic treatment, Food consumption pattern before and during the pandemic were collected with a questionnaire. The purpose of this survey and review is to give main interest in nutraceutical to which anti-inflammatory and antiviral roles has been taking part in younger adults at the time of their diagnosis or treatment. The pandemic caused sudden lifestyle changes, through social distancing and isolation at home, which represented a massive impact on food habits of people.
