    Azithromycin for Page strand angina

    Yesterday, 07.07 at 10:00 o’clock first intake. My doctor immediately recommended to take an antibiotic because I have purulent spots in my throat and felt like a dirty dog. Headache, sinuses tight, difficulty swallowing and the whole program. So after taking first no abnormalities after 2 hours of normal walk to the toilet and then suddenly the rotary swindle. Schwindelattake until shortly before the collapse – then quickly on the couch, legs bent and first breathe. I stayed there for the first time and then I had a terrible stomachache and after about 3 hours and a little sleep I felt better again. Last night it was great and now I take the second tablet. Take a look!:)

    Side effects: Stomach pain; Headache

    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 Bronchitis (acute)

    Improved physical condition from the second day on, but shortness of breath only from the 5th day (following the first intake) better – it remains today after the 8th day still dry cough, but no more breathlessness, no additional expansion spray more necessary – After the first intake changed taste, diffuse slight headache, intestinal grumble, On the 2nd day after taking stomach cramps in the evening, but not on the 3rd day – gaining weight (questionable whether from the increased food or whether water stored = edema, as mainly on the legs the thickened sensation and pants too tight) –

    Azithromycin for Lung infection; Cold; Tonsillitis

    Azithromycin is effective, but you have to be shy to see if that translates into side effects. On the first day, I had mild stomach cramps, which was not so bad. The following day, instead of stomach cramps, headaches and arrhythmias were added. Now, two days after taking the last dose, I am extremely weak, still have a morning headache and with light effort (putting towels together) my heart starts to beat at irregular intervals … this condition lasts up to 30 seconds , Otherwise, my skin is dry on the body and my facial skin has become greasy.

    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

    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.

    Azithromycin for Difficulties swallowing; To cough; Sinusitis

    Already after the first day of the intake against 13.00 clock noon after the meal, I felt in the stomach area a grumble and got shortly afterwards a soft soft bowel movements, otherwise on the day no side effects! On day 2, I got diarrhea and mild headache, as well as a slight nausea and constant agitation with irritability. The intake was also on the last day and shortly after taking it I had severe stomach pain and a severe nausea, this time no diarrhea, but I still got chills and since then I have a headache too !!! My general condition is severely impaired and I constantly feel that I have to vomit and freeze. The discomforts of the disease are somewhat mitigated by these tablets, ie. no more difficulty swallowing, cough is still acute and my cold is no longer purulent, but rather transparent and the nose is constantly running. All in all, I would not take these tablets anymore. Will talk to my doctor about it because the side effects were too intense. Greetings to everyone and get well soon. U. from Saxony
