    Azithromycin for Chlamydia infection

    I rarely had such a feeling in the stomach area. I thought I had an allergic shock reaction to a meal when I got this pain. I could barely sit straight and had diarrhea. with the nausea I had to fight, in addition came chills and associated cold sweat. my doctor said the three-day treatment helped. but still I would not want to take this drug again and also advise against others. Because it can not be healthy if a drug causes such severe side effects.

    Azithromycin for Page strand angina

    Have ‘only’ diarrhea, stomach grumble and actually stomach ache. But I do not know AB, that does not cause stomach pain, therefore, every doctor should prescribe gastric juice resistant pills, such as pantroprazole. I’ve got it myself. This makes the AB therapy more bearable. No dizziness or nausea. I can not judge the effectiveness yet. Today third intake day. Ear and throat pain are gone, but I still feel very powerless, household is exhausting, quickly out of breath.

    Side effects: Diarrhea

    Azithromycin for Otitis

    Preliminary: The drug has already improved the symptoms of otitis media from the first tablet. But the side effects with me were fatal. On the first day, I had diarrhea, but it was already on the second day. But there was loss of appetite and nausea from the second tablet. Any attempt to eat light food ended in a bloated stomach and more nausea. After the third pill the symptoms became even stronger. Here, nothing helped at all. But the feeling of hunger further strengthened the nausea. Two days after taking the last pill, the nausea and loss of appetite persists. Any attempt to eat something fails.

    Side effects: Bloating; Anorexia; Nausea; Diarrhea

    Azithromycin for Sinusitis

    At 1 day after 1.5 hours stomach ache and flatulence, which also quickly disappeared again. On the second day stronger spasms in the stomach and slight diarrhea. On the third day so strong cramps and pain with Duchfällen for about 2 hours and hot flashes. Would never take this medicine again. There are enough alternatives without such strong side effects.

    I got the medication prescribed by my dentist because of my paradontitis and started taking it in the evening at about 6 o’clock yesterday evening. About 2 hours later I had intestinal cramps, diarrhea and vomiting yesterday. At night then extreme chills. Although I do not know if this is now coincidence and I may have caught a virus, but when I read the reviews I think that may be side effects. I will visit my family doctor today to clarify this.

    Azithromycin for Sinusitis; Bronchitis (acute)

    I received azithromycin 500mg for 3 days for sinusitis and bronchitis (and for pneumonia prophylaxis in existing asthma). This drug was previously prescribed for such infections and it did not cause me any side effects at that time. Unfortunately, this time it was different: Approx. 2 hours after taking the first pill, gastric spasms, which lasted in an attenuated form until the next administration on the following day. On the second day of the intake stomach cramps and diarrhea (1x, again about 2 hours after ingestion) were added to the stomach cramps. The third intake was accompanied by mild respiratory distress. One day after taking the third dose, I got a kind of flush, accompanied by dizziness and a sudden feeling of weakness, so that my face was warm and red for several hours and I had to lie down because of the weakness. I noticed sleep problems and nocturnal anxiety attacks during two nights during the intake. In addition, there is a massive dehydration of the skin and mucous membrane, which manifests itself in particular by desquamation and tearing of the face and lip skin and by a thickening of the nasal mucus and sputum. In addition, I am increasingly thirsty, so that I come to a daily intake of 4.5 liters of water. This enormous thirst persists today, two days after the end of the intake. As well as the massive dryness of the skin and mucous membranes. I also suffer from loss of appetite and partly from sudden nausea and a weight loss of 1.5kg. The described side effects or symptoms merely describe my personal experience with the drug. Since every person reacts differently to medication and this also depends on many factors, I will refrain from recommendations for or against azithromycin.

    Azithromycin for Dizziness; Tonsillitis; Bronchitis (acute)

    Intake: 3 days with significant side effects Day 1: Brain pressure, drowsiness, fatigue, dizziness, headache. 2nd day: fatigue, drowsiness, pressure in the head, dizziness. 3rd day: after last use, 2 hours later, diarrhea 5 times, dizziness, cardiovascular problems, drowsiness, difficulty seeing. Joint pain. 4th day: gastrointestinal spasms, dizziness, insomnia, cardiovascular. No more diarrhea, but a soft bowel movement, followed by gastrointestinal spasms. 5th day: gastrointestinal spasms. Since the antiobiotikum lingers for days in the body, I do not know what the next few days still bring with it, otherwise the Doc again. Conclusion: This drug is clearly from the market. There are enough reviews for this purpose.

    Azithromycin for Tonsillitis

    I have been prescribed this medication for tonsillitis with thick lymph nodes and lumps in the throat. I had to take this medicine twice a day. After the first tablet, I began to have flatulence and a slightly softer stool and minimal stomach aches that could be tolerated. So went on for 2 days. On the last day of taking and on the last pill in the evening, I got bad diarrhea, stomach ache, strong tremors and palpitations, I had a feeling on my face as if everything had been numb, my muscles were kind of cramped, but that could be from the Trembling is coming, it was hell. This read but after about 1 1/2 hours. Whether the drug has helped now, I can not say for sure, a no relief maybe. I would recommend taking the tablets with meals. ! If it does not have to be again, I will not take this tablet, but do not panic, the drug works differently in each case.

    Azithromycin for Tonsillitis

    I have taken the drug azithromycin for the second time for acute angina (tonsillitis). The first time I took the 3-day therapy, I took it in the morning and felt some stomach cramps around noon. I slept well at this time, as the stomach cramps quickly increased in intensity. Now on the second time I have very strong stomach cramps with diarrhea and stool softening. Unfortunately, since my I-Sleep-Now-A-Bypass-The-Cramping tactic does not work, I have to endure it. After almost 1 1/2 hours of the first intake, the malaise begins, followed by mild to very severe stomach cramps. I only had diarrhea on the first day. On the second day of taking the stomach cramps come much earlier, after taking and also last significantly longer. Otherwise only a stool softening. On the third day I dreaded taking the drug significantly more, but in combination with Ibu 400 the stomach cramps became more bearable and no other side effects occurred. The drug works well and lasts 10 days after ingestion. Although the side effects are extremely unpleasant, but in conjunction with analgesic drug compatible.

    Azithromycin for Pharyngitis

    Had extreme one-sided dysphagia. Eating, drinking, yawning, talking and sleeping was almost impossible. The pharynx was fire-red. A substitute doctor prescribed this drug for me. Within the first 48 hours, the pain was sometimes better, sometimes worse. I was already desperate and thought the tablets are not working. Only after more than 60 hours I noticed a noticeable improvement. Another 24 hours later, the pain was almost completely gone. Diarrhea, stomach rumbling and malaise are still, 48 hours after the last dose, the side effects. I hope they disappear soon. However, it is not a comparison you swallowing. At the moment, I would definitely recommend this medication.

    Side effects: Stomach complaints; Diarrhea

    Azithromycin for Cold; Pharyngitis; Bronchitis (acute)

    I got the drug after two weeks of intense cough, which was accompanied by fever and earache. The first two days I had very strong diarrhea and my stomach was so bloated that I was asked if I had gained weight. I even looked pregnant in my own opinion (5th month or so). On the third day I was very pleased that the diarrhea subsided, but then painful, punctual headache tormented me and I was dead tired all day long. In the meantime, I had even slight Sehstöhrungen (such as a flimsy disappearance of parts of the visible surface). The effect was good, as far as the cold is concerned. I am on the clear road to recovery after three days. But I know antibiotics that work faster and have triggered almost no side effects with me. So … I would rather advise against it. It was quite agony and the headache is now at the end of the last and third day just very slowly on the decay and still disturbing. The benefits of this treatment, except that you forget it with just one tablet a day so easily, I do not understand.
