Most commonly used antibiotic since last 40years in varied indications Encouraged by successful use in rickettosis and meningitis Yes known drug to cause oesophagitis and spasm if pt takes it at bed time and with minimum water hence pt is to be informed and advise to take with plenty of water Recently it is used in covid19 pneumonitis instead of azithromycin with hcqs and ivermectin Thus broadly applicable antibiotic But idiosyncrasies and FDE should be cared
