"flip, whip, and drip" method for administering AzaSite (azithromycin) ophthalmic drops

  You'll hear about the "flip, whip, and drip" method for administering AzaSite (azithromycin) ophthalmic drops.

  AzaSite is promoted as more convenient because it's dosed less often. But the solution is viscous and hard to get out of the bottle.

  Advise patients to "flip" the bottle upside down before opening it...give it a "whip" or shake to force the solution down into the tip...then remove the cap and "drip" it into the eye.
