    Clarithromycin for Helicobacter pylori gastritis

    It had to take 7 days, right from the beginning disgusting bitter taste in the mouth (controllable to me sugar-free lollipops, was especially necessary at night), since the 5th day inflammation and blackening of the tongue, severe burning of the tongue tip. The most unpleasant, however, are very severe joint pain in my already damaged right hip, could barely occur or run, always in a flash einschiessende maximum pain, muscle weakness with kinking; I am otherwise in good health and usually tolerate most medications – rarely take anything – and very unpleasant is also the depression that has set in under the intake.

    Clarithromycin for Tonsillitis

    Clarithromycin was now the 4th o. 5. Antibiotics which I was prescribed because of a purulent anginis, before the antibiotics brought only a short-term relief. I got the drug for 10 days, today is the 7th day of ingestion. For effectiveness, I can say that my tonsils now look relatively normal, even if it is not quite gone. I think that antibiotics anyway does not help me much because of the too frequent intake, which I have had to do and the bacteria are already reacting (almond OP is planned). Among the side effects, I can say that nausea, etc. which are often mentioned here, did not occur. After the first revenue I had no side effects, only was that I woke up at night einpaarmal and 1-2x did not sleep so well at the beginning. It can not be said that it comes 100% from the tablets. But what about 3 days now is that it often stings in my heart area and it feels a little uncomfortable with pressure with the hand. At first I thought it was some nerve, but over time my left arm began to become heavy, sometimes tingling or tormenting my arm like it does today. (Sport, etc. was not operated) I read on the Internet that Clarithromycin should damage the heart, I do not know if it is related to it, or my body is now weakened by so many antibiotics that such symptoms occur .. I am glad that Wednesday the pack is empty. Even though this antibiotic may help, once again I would not want to take this antibiotic.

    Clarithromycin for Bacterial infection

    Got the antibiotic because of a bacterial infection. On the first day of taking everything was still good. Have a good time. I have also taken Boxagrippal and sinupret because my sinuses were also inflamed (I can tolerate both drugs easily) In the second night after taking I had to go to the toilet and shortly thereafter, my circulation is the first time broken together. I just made it to my bed. Constantly I had cold sweat attacks I also got strong diarrhea and nausea. The bitter (metallic) taste in the mouth is honestly again. Appetite is almost zero. Also, the fresh air I inhale through the nose smells metallic. Today is the 5th day of taking it and I felt really bad after taking the tablet. My circulation was in the basement for a while. Headache had nausea and extreme diarrhea after taking it. Had many sinusitis and infections but never had such complaints. That’s why I can say it’s the antibiotic

    Clarithromycin for Tonsillitis

    I would also like to share my experience here after being prescribed clarithromycin 500mg for tonsillitis. Have to say that I h already took a penicillin over 10 days ago. But the clarithromycin then completely struck me down. As good as it seemed after 2 days was so strong were the side effects. Headache, bitter taste, dizziness and discomfort, and a lack of power with associated muscle pain. One could say now that comes from the infectious. However, I did not have these symptoms before taking it. I’m glad if the thing is over! My doctor advised me to stop the medication because of the strong side effect, but my fear is too big to get a relapse. I have already done 4.5 days. I count each one!

    After a gastroscopy, the heliobacter was diagnosed. Then I got Metronidazole STADA 400mg and Clarilind 500mg for 7 days in the morning and in the evening 1 Tabeltte. Within the 7 days I had severe sweating, fatigue, palpitations, sleep disturbances and a constant bitter taste. First I put all of these side effects on the weather, as it was very hot and humid at the time. After the end of the intake, sore throat started and burned in my mouth. My tongue showed a thick white coating, which is still not right after 8 days of receipt. In the oral cavity, but rather in the cheek pouches, there are now open spots that do not even think about healing. Eating is out of the question.

    Clarithromycin for Sinusitis; Bronchitis (acute)

    Clarithromycin from Ratiopharm I took 5 T against acute bronchitis &. Sinusitis, which accompanied me already a good 10 days. Initially disregarding the symptoms, after the second to the fifth day there were alternating side effects in truly more extreme proportions (I am never ill, seemingly equipped with many defensive functions, quite athletic and a total anti-pill, only in the extreme SOS case I leave these on my body) such as gastrointestinal discomfort, stomach cramps, abdominal discomfort, joint, muscle and headache, disgusting bitter taste in the mouth and the worst were sudden arrhythmia which in turn led to sleep disorders, panic suffering a heart attack and consequently associated with massive sleep disorders. Then also made all sorts of x-rays, ECG, etc. All inconclusively, of course. All in all, a disaster or the side effects were more massive than the actual disease only one can in advance never guess how the body reacts and reads the leaflet with these many possible consequences, it seems almost impossible that none of them occur. The manufacturers simply protect themselves against all risks from something naturally understandable, would otherwise receive a flood of Regressen of resourceful lawyers on these.

    Clarithromycin for Tonsillitis; Sinusitis

    Efficacy with regard to tonsillitis good. Sinus complaints persist even further. Already on the second day, a fungal infection occurred despite the preventive use of lactic acid. Bitter taste in the mouth. Slight nausea delayed after taking, but disappears again. Today, irritation caused by mild anxiety, which I usually do not know about (only just realized that this was probably a side effect). All in all, therefore, I am not convinced by this drug and would not like to be prescribed.

    Clarithromycin for Bronchitis (acute)

    The first few days severe flatulence and abdominal pain. Constantly a bitter taste in the mouth. On the penultimate day, severe rash developed on the scalp and ear. The sinuses are not completely cured even after 10 days of taking.

    Clarithromycin for Sinusitis

    I got the drug because of a chronic sinusitis (duration already 7 weeks). It took 5 days until I even noticed a slight improvement of the sinus complaints (constant, very unpleasant whining and pressure in the teeth). On the 7th day my ENT-doctor determined a clear improvement by ultrasound. Nevertheless, my complaints are not gone today on the 10th and last day of taking. I feel sick and ill even before taking the drug. But since I take the AB, I’ve clearly increased my already existing weakness and fatigue. I’m down to nothing, feel like I’ll never get back on my feet and only drag myself through the day. As soon as I make a little effort, my teeth start to pull harder and wiggle again. It is terrible and my nerves are blank, especially since the whole thing is already for a very long time with me and a normal everyday life for a long time not possible. I really hope that this insane, enormously burdensome weakness will abate quickly with the end of the AB, because that is the worst of all. With some stomach depressions, loss of appetite, bitter taste and a little discolored tongue I could live. Preventing diarrhea I took perenterol, for the intestinal flora delayed to AB Omnibiotic Stress Repair, so the intestine has held out well, which is not a matter of course for me.

On ultrasound, blood sampling, stomach & amp; Intestinal play, esophageal stomach / intestinal inflammation were noted, peptic ulcer, cysts & amp; Polyps in thin & amp; Large intestine (which were removed) and finally diagnosed with Helicobacter pylori gastritis. Delicate woman does not treat herself otherwise – if already, all program. Since I was suspicious of crohn’s disease in the CH, which is not curable, I was then denoch relieved.
