    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.

    Clarithromycin for Borreliose; Helicobacter pylori gastritis

    Simultaneous intake of Amoxi 3 times daily and Clari 2 times daily for Helicobacter pylori and a feverish, chronic Borrelia infection. At first I was absolutely thrilled, because already on the second day my increased temperature for months dropped by one degree. Especially after taking the Amoxi grabbed me from the 2nd-3rd. Every day, however, the most extreme fatigue I’ve ever experienced, so I slept for several hours after each tablet, so the whole of the day. In addition, it hit me a bit on the stomach, mild stomach cramps, heartburn, mouthburn increased while taking more and more, although I can not say whether this was caused by Amoxi, Clari or both. These complaints could be avoided, however, if I had eaten as recommended before taking enough. In addition, I still had a disturbing metallic taste in my mouth and strangely everything tasted spicy, even water. From about the 4th intake day, I got more and more heart palpitations and later cardiac arrhythmia, which is why the treatment had to be stopped eventually. These heart misfires still continue today, 5 weeks after ingestion. Nevertheless, I find the medication recommended, as they are much better tolerated than these entries suggest here and if I read sentences like I would not take this voluntarily again, I can only shake my head. Sometimes antibiotics are the only effective therapy and for a few days side effects are better than the alternative of not getting well at all! One should not forget that here above average rate many people who were dissatisfied with the drug. And especially in the use of antibiotics against diseases such as Lyme disease, many complaints are not side effects, but Herxheimer reactions.

    Clarithromycin for Sinusitis

    Within a few hours of taking it, I felt stinging stomach pains and a bitter taste in my mouth. After that, my stomach blew with severe upper abdominal pain. Diarrhea and abdominal cramping then followed. This phase lasted about 5 hours, then everything was fine again. After taking each tablet, the process was repeated exactly the same. After consultation with my doctor I was prescribed a stomach protection (pantoprazole). With the gastric protection, the stinging stomach ache was slightly better, but overall, each tablet still meant 5 hours of pain and toilet visits. Concomitants on the one hand were severe tiredness, on the other hand sleep disturbances at night, slight skin irritations on the face, changes in taste, sweating and wild dreams with confusion and depressive states. I have the drug after consultation with my doctor after 3 days (6 tablets).

    Clarithromycin for Helicobacter pylori gastritis

    The intake took place in the morning 1 hour before breakfast and in the evening 1 hour before eating, for 7 days, each 3 tablets together. I had a combination pack, ZacPac, in which the individual tablets were packed well and clearly and revenue errors are impossible. On the 1st and 2nd day, I noticed almost nothing, except a little bit of excess, flatulence and a bitter taste in my mouth. On the 3rd and 4th day the nausea increased and dizziness, fatigue and weakness were added. I was not capable of anything on those days. On the 5th – 7th day suddenly diarrhea came on, although I always took intestinal flora plus (health food) – healthy intestinal bacteria – to the tablet income. For the diarrhea I took 1 x 1 loperamide and got on quite well with it. The bitter taste and flatulence lasted the entire 7 days. Today – the 8th and 9th day – I still have mild diarrhea and the weakness is not quite gone yet. Otherwise I had no side effects, no skin problems. From a positive point of view, I can now eat things that previously caused heartburn and stomach problems, such as: For example, different types of fruit (nectarine, grapes, peach …) Although it is quite a burden, but from the time frame manageable and enduring. Think that the diarrhea will be back in a few days. Therefore, I can recommend this therapy.

    Clarithromycin for Borreliose

    Anyway, everything is very vague in Lyme disease anyway. The pathogen detection is difficult or even impossible (especially if the doctor does not play along and for reasons of cost and principle only IgG and IgM without Western Blot makes) and the symptoms are so complex that they can not be distinguished from side effects or a Herxheimer reaction. Therefore, a report in the context is anything but valid – that only beforehand. After a tick bite (without mottled, without disease symptoms but in the groin and thus optimal for the spread of pathogens) I have received precautionary initially Doxycyclin (2x100mg / day). Already after 4 hours everything hurt me, every step was followed by a sweat break, I was completely destroyed and was just lying around. I kept it for 4 days and switched to clarithromycin (2x250mg / day). The pain in the limbs improved, the sweats also. However, after 3-4 days, abdominal pain and diarrhea occurred. I got omniflora and perenterol. The diarrhea and abdominal pain disappeared, but I suffered from severe allergic rhinitis for 2-3 days, which I initially attributed to the environment (Hab Hayfever) – In hindsight, I’m not sure if this was also a side effect or not. All in all, I felt weaker and tired every day. Just like when you have a fever, just without a fever. So limb or muscle pain. After 18 days, the allergic rhinitis came back stronger than ever before. The nose just flowed, itching unbearably, smelled of blood and was constantly blocked. 3 days later, I took the last tablet, but has improved since then (10 days later) little to nothing. The nose is no longer crazy, but is still swollen to the sinuses and somehow seems sore. At the slightest effort I start to sweat and have the urgent feeling to lie down. My limbs are especially painful and hard to move. My conclusion: Either I have Lyme disease, that drug has failed and these are now the symptoms or all these are side effects of a drug-induced dysbiosis and viral infection in the nose. I’m typing on the latter. My ENT doctor says: It is clear that they destroy in the intestine, in the mouth, in the nose about 4000 bacterial strains and thus 2/3 of all living bacteria, whether good or bad, and leave there irritated but uninhabited skin, the now a perfect resettlement area for viruses and bacteria. So the immune system has its hands full fighting new threats, and that costs strength. He estimates that I will be still good for 2-3 months … My internist, however, says that all this can not be and that after 2-3 days no side effects are no longer available. Everything else is new infections or just Lyme disease. Now you can play roulette who is right … The bad thing: If you do one thing and it is the other, the symptoms worsened.

    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 Lymph node inflammation

    Shortly after I started using the drug, I got the feeling that the things I eat somehow taste different than usual. Feeling unbalanced, in a bad mood and dull. Sometimes I feel pretty cold and dizzy
