Clarithromycin is more effective than Azithromycin just because it is not used by quacks for which has less drug resistance profile.

Clinical efficacy of both molecules are almost similar. But azithromycin is well tolerated than clarithromycin Clarithromycin has a longer serum half-life and better tissue penetration .

Azithromycin used now because it is tolerated better. Dose is once daily 500 mg for 5 days. It has anti inflammatory effect. Clarithromycin is used twice daily with multiple drug interaction.
