    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 Helicobacter pylori gastritis

    I have been prescribed clarithromycin in combination with metronidazole and pantoprazole as a Helicobacter treatment. Already after the first intake I felt very bad: circulatory problems, nausea, loss of appetite, abdominal cramps and sensitivity to smell and light. I kept the torture for 4.5 days until I got heart problems and my doctor had to stop the treatment. Now 3 days after the end of this treatment, although the heart problems have become less, but still felt – that scares me. I would recommend to anyone as long as it is possible to avoid this medication.

    Clarithromycin for Tonsillitis

    Clarithromycin was now the 4th o. 5. Antibiotics which I was prescribed because of a purulent anginis, before the antibiotics brought only a short-term relief. I got the drug for 10 days, today is the 7th day of ingestion. For effectiveness, I can say that my tonsils now look relatively normal, even if it is not quite gone. I think that antibiotics anyway does not help me much because of the too frequent intake, which I have had to do and the bacteria are already reacting (almond OP is planned). Among the side effects, I can say that nausea, etc. which are often mentioned here, did not occur. After the first revenue I had no side effects, only was that I woke up at night einpaarmal and 1-2x did not sleep so well at the beginning. It can not be said that it comes 100% from the tablets. But what about 3 days now is that it often stings in my heart area and it feels a little uncomfortable with pressure with the hand. At first I thought it was some nerve, but over time my left arm began to become heavy, sometimes tingling or tormenting my arm like it does today. (Sport, etc. was not operated) I read on the Internet that Clarithromycin should damage the heart, I do not know if it is related to it, or my body is now weakened by so many antibiotics that such symptoms occur .. I am glad that Wednesday the pack is empty. Even though this antibiotic may help, once again I would not want to take this antibiotic.
