    Azithromycin for Respiratory infections

    After the first intake, I noticed a strange feeling, I was dizzy. After a good 1 or 1 1/2 hours I got depression. At first, I did not think it had anything to do with the drug, so I went to sleep in the evening. The next day at the same time, I took the second tablet, after the same time interval I got more depression, they became stronger and stronger, I had problems falling asleep in the evening, furthermore I got a headache after the 2nd tablet. The next day I woke up again and suddenly had thoughts of suicidal thoughts in my head and I will not let go since then. It may be that I am an isolated case, but nevertheless, I would advise against this drug, although the suicidal thoughts I like so slowly.

    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.

    I got this medicine for pleurisy. Already after the first intake I felt hot flashes and an inner restlessness. I had a severe headache and nausea. Added to this was dizziness and dizziness. I did not take the third and last pill, because on the second day, myrrhythmia and heart disease were added. It is now 4 days after the last tablet and the side effects are still there. The feeling of drowsiness even gets worse. In addition, there are still sensations on the face and despite settle. If I do not feel better on Monday after the weekend I have to go to the doctor again because of the side effects.

But: The side effects of dizziness, fatigue and a slight itchy rash on Dekoltee could not be avoided – everything was half as bad … But NOW: The intake is just two weeks ago and I have a severe cold sore on the upper lip (approx. 30 bubbles)Extremely painful. I will never take this medicine again

    Azithromycin for Sinusitis

    With drug 1 = I am now at the 3rd and last tablet. Until now, I still have a slight feeling of pressure in the paranasal sinuses. Dizziness, headaches and loose stools are associated with this. But as already written in other testimonials, it seems that after the last tablet is clearly better, I still have hope. But by and large, the antibiotic is recommended, ma apart from the side effect. For drug 2 = is a preparation that is used for vitamin B1 and B6 deficiency. I’ve paid very little attention to my diet lately and have never expected that a lack of certain vitamins will result in such health-related consequences. Since I mostly drank only coffee and nothing else (plus smoker), I got the receipt for it about 3 weeks ago. Tachycardia (resting heart rate at 120), dizziness, anxiety attacks, very very high inner restlessness, a tingling sensation in the right hand. Family doctor made ECG, blood test = Everything OK. Due to my high caffeine consumption and smoking he prescribed me Vitamin B Duo (private recipe = about 10.00 €). Because caffeine and nicotine neutralize vitamins B1 and B6 in the body. I take the drug now a good 10 days and I have to say that it causes no side effects for me. The tachycardia, which I found to be particularly bad is gone, the pulse is at a normal level and also the tingling in the hand has disappeared. I can only recommend Vitamin B Duo

    I got prescribed 3 film-coated tablets in depot form. After the second day the first symptoms appeared in the form of high blood pressure, slight dizziness and malaise. Occasionally a slight stinging in the heart area was noticeable. The blood pressure was a maximum of 165/80 or even 145/106. There were large fluctuations. ECG was ok. If you do not have a blood pressure device at home, you probably can not understand it. It was very unpleasant side effects, because I had the feeling partly to cook internally. Fortunately, I was in a rehab at that time and the values could be understood there. Since it was Depottabletten (3×1 days / amount) with a duration of action of 5-7 days, these side effects remained until the 6th day. Only then has it returned to normal. Due to the depot function you have no possibility to intervene here. This is unpleasant and you are also nervous. My drug is called Azithromizine from Stada 500 mg 3 film-coated tablets. In the description of the side effects is only what of cardiac arrhythmia, palpitations, tachycardia, but not extreme blood pressure changes. I then called my doctor at home, but he confirmed these symptoms in some patients.

    Side effects: Malaise; Dizziness

    Azithromycin for To cough

    Now take the drug the second day and have to honestly say that I rarely went so weird. I feel drugged, somehow dizzy, and at the same time I feel a sense of inner restlessness. Could sleep all day, but when I lie down, I can not rest. To howl, I am very unresolved with the overall situation. Against emerging nausea, I have been prescribed MCP, a miracle, if you ask me. The symptoms (severe cough, blemished bronchi) are almost gone, although I take the drug only the second day.

    Side effects: Unrest; Dizziness; Nausea
