    I was prescribed this antibiotic because of the inflamed neck, gums, sinuses, and ears. I am now on the third of 7 days of ingestion. In contrast to other medicines, the parts taste very good, the first minutes after taking a pleasant vanilla taste, what more could you ask for? On the first day, I was slightly confused and restless, often had a bitter taste in my mouth, and diarrhea. Yesterday morning I woke up and since then I have a strong stomach ache and I hear my pulse (ffffh-ffffh-ffffh). Since then I hardly do anything to taste. In the afternoon I had a slight headache. I was still restless. Going to sleep, I then took because of the (really strong) abdominal pain a slight iboprofen, which you can allegedly without hesitation to take. After about 30 minutes, my running a little bit drooped and I fell asleep quickly. I had diarrhea again at night, and the stomach pains, headaches, the drawing pulse and the dizziness were all still there. Well, now, after all, my kisses run very well together, but the abdominal pain is really cruel. The symptoms that forced me to take it are now much better. In 4 days the thank God is over.

    Clarithromycin for Tonsillitis

    I took the drug for two days for tonsillitis and had to see my doctor again because the side effects were extreme and the real cause of the disease is now the lesser evil. Already the first night after taking 2 tablets (morning and evening) I was awakened by violent chills, together with fever dreams and strong nausea; I thought several times that I had to vomit. A bad experience. Today, the second day of ingestion, stomach cramps and diarrhea were added. Actually, I am always bad and I have a pressing headache. So far I have tolerated antibiotics actually good, but this means is an impertinence! As mentioned, I am back to my doctor, who did not actually have any negative experiences with clarithromycin, but he advised me to stop the treatment and prescribed another remedy for me. It is Rulid, which I have already taken a few times before. I do not know how my body reacts to the incompatibility on the one hand and the new medication on the other hand, but what choice do I have? Never again

    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.

    Use the drug now for almost 10 days. The reason is inflammation prophylaxis. Since inflammation was wrongly suspected even before surgery, I started using clarithromycin 4 days before. I can not say much about the effectiveness, because I never had to fight an inflammation, only that there was no further inflammation in the further course of the disease. The side effects, however, are clearly felt, I have not yet felt in any other drug so: -Herzrasen-heart rhythm disorder -neginess-sleep disorders (it is 5 o’clock in the morning, as I write this report) -Kopfschmerzen -diarrhea -extreme thirst (which is very unfavorable, if the teeth are so sensitive to temperature differences) -extreme sweating … Due to the unusually strong side effects, I was insecure, stress, up to panic a (this was the first time in my life herpes). So I’m extremely skaptisch if I can take this drug until the actual end of treatment. I advise everyone before taking Clarithromycin to inquire, possibly to get a second opinion. If other medicines were also available I would advise against this drug.

    Clarithromycin for Bronchitis (acute)

    Clarithromycin dura 250 mg: After the first tablet, my symptoms quickly improved. Starting on day 2, side effects such as insomnia, rapid heartbeat, panic attacks, depressive episodes, itching, dizziness, mild headache, dry mouth, eerie thirst began on day 3, followed by stomach cramps and infernal abdominal pain. However, all the side effects disappeared on the 4th day, except for the metallic taste that lasted the entire intake time. The last 3 days were no complaints. Conclusion: Unpleasant but sustainable side effects, I do not think antibiotics do the body really good but sometimes you just can not get around …

    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!

    Clarithromycin for Respiratory infections; Bronchitis (acute)

    Clarithrobeta received 250mg from the doctor for respiratory tract infections, especially bronchial tubes. From the second day onwards, the disease only improved slightly, but side effects became more frequent. About 4 hours after taking the first tablet, around noon, there were headaches, restlessness, dizziness, mild panic, loss of appetite, a bad stomach feeling, confusion, lack of concentration, physical weakness and general malaise. These side effects increased in the course of the evening and read until the following day.

    Clarithromycin for Lung infection

    Diagnosis: atypical lingual pneumonia Therapy: 14 days clarithromycin 500mg + ACC Hexal then 7 days Josalid 500mg + ACC Hexal thereafter 9 days Avelox 400mg (10 days therapy canceled on 9th day) Course: After the first week of therapy with clarithromycin there was an improvement However, the discomfort I still had purulent sputum. After the second week, an improvement in the radiograph was evident, but the purulent sputum, partially with traces of blood, persisted. After the third week (after 7 days Joslid) continue to shade in the radiograph and unchanged purulent ejection. After the fourth week (after 9 days Avelox) the purulent sputum remained unchanged. I did not consent to any further x-rays since I had already X-rayed four times at this time. From the fifth week and suspected serious side effects with Avelox, I discontinued the drug. Further treatment was with Symbicort forte. Effectiveness of Avelox: I can not give any information about that, as there was no improvement in the symptoms during the therapy. I doubt that in my particular case Avelox should have been prescribed. Suspected side effects with Avelox: The evening after taking Avelox for the first time, blurred vision, heart trouble, and noticeably increased heart rates occurred. On the second day I had visual disturbances, heart problems, high pulse rate and disturbances of balance, which made it impossible for me to walk upright. I lay down and continued to experience severe dizziness, headache and nausea (without vomiting). There were motor disturbances and articulation difficulties. Finally, I got extreme anxiety and racing heart. I spent the next 1-2 hours cowering on the floor until my condition returned to normal. However, it remained the next few days with a significantly reduced fine motor skills and phased headaches and heart problems. On the ninth day of taking Avelox, there was a spontaneous mortal fear and palpitations. The condition, which lasted about 3-4 hours, I overcame in crouching position. The next day, I changed the attending pulmonary specialist and, with his consent, stopped taking Avelox. Note on the ratings: The effectiveness and value for money were rated with 5 points, as the website of Sanego does not allow abstention. In fact, I can not judge whether a complete cure of the pneumonia has occurred and which drug may have caused it. Also for the price-performance ratio I can not give any information, since the medicines were taken over by the health insurance.

    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

    The first side effect is a severe headache. I also took aspirin, which was not tolerated with the antibiotic. Take paracetamol now, it works better. In addition there is a strong ear noise, which somehow confuses my sense of weight and makes me stagger around like drunk. Besides, I’m extremely tired. I am now on the 3rd day of my intake and I am wondering how to get through it until the 7th day. An improvement of my condition is somehow not in sight at the moment. Sick by side effects – where should be the meaning?

    Side effects: Ear noises; Headache
