BrandName for Roxi-

Recently recieved this reply to a inquiry. 

"We can get in Roxithromycin-  in 150mg and 300 mg.  Brand name ROXID-, manufacturer ALEMBIC- LIMITED-"

Rulid-orRulide has been the brand that I have know and has been suggested in the past as most reliable.   I have not been able to find a way to source that brand anymore.

Any thought on the above manufacturers ?  

Also found this very interesting discourse while googling;

Louise, I looked at the Alembic website and tney seem like a good place.  I have recently taken some of those sky-blue roxithromycins from India, I forget the name but they are made for Abbott, who wouldn’t risk sullying their name by licencing inferior stuff.  My infected finger was fine within a few days.  David has also taken something called Poliroxin, obtained from a Thai place.  This worked for him as well.  The suppliers of both were temporarily closed for investigation but reopened, so I guess they were found to be legitimate....................Sarah
