This may work in France (or Mexico or Japan, etc.), but it won't work in 
America.  You can't buy Erythromycing from a drug store without a 
prescription.  However, it's available in veterinary form from any of the 
fish supply catalogs or stores.  In fact, Maracyn I is nothing more than 200 
mg of Erythromycin.
