    4.0 rating

    Over the first 30 days of therapy, I had to take the medication with doxycyline 200mg in combination pulsing every 3 days. Side effects were: heavy urination, dandruff on the face and red spots, strong ear noises like droning, in the evening totally tired and at night I could not sleep, listlessness, although I’m an endurance athlete and not a moaning (5x per week training – about 10 12 hrs) – my symptoms of chlamydia were compounded by the drug during the intake phase.

    Side effects: Listlessness; Insomnia

    Have azithromycin 2×500 mg after doctor arrangement once (single dose) in the afternoon so against 16.00 o’clock taken. At night, I woke up suddenly with a never-before-felt prolonged inner fear and fear-which was cognitively unexplained to me, fortunately so far so far balanced- I had no explanation of where it came from … so I google-te around and saw several hundred! Entries in the English-language (under Zithromax) with similar persistent anxiety disorders and fearful side-effects. As an emergency, I had to become a psychiatrist mate, because I could no longer suppress these feelings of anxiety through concentration (with self-talk and relativization of the problem). It felt as if my ego-feeling would slowly dissolve into this fear / fearsome feeling … To the emergency medication only helped: light, radio, turn on the TV, and doing something cognitively hectic stressful, much thinking, pondering me from this fear / fear feeling always distracting. Rest, loneliness, darkness, silence greatly increased this feeling of anxiety again. I got Alprazolam 3x 0,5mg, so I sleep immediately, and sleep about 1.5 days. After waking up, this fear / fear returned in about 6 hours, so I would have to take another Alprazolam 0.5mg. The drug dissolved all my fears within half an hour, but made me extremely tired. My day-night period tipped over, although I always waited until the last moment to take the medication. (until the feeling of anxiety came and then I did not want to feel it anymore). In the evening I would not be able to fall asleep anymore, also because of fear of this fear / fear feeling, because darkness caused this fear / fear. It was only with taking alprazolam 0.5 mg before falling asleep. It continued for 4 days until I felt a small weakening of that feeling of anxiety. I went to the mall with company, as crowd and perceived hustle and bustle of this anxiety suppressed something. In the evening at home, unfortunately, then started again … I was already Verzeifelt that it stays that way. Then I was told to drink much more. I drank 2.5 liters of ice tea, which immediately improved me. In the evening, I took Bromazepam 6mg instead of Alprazolam (to avoid dependency). Bromazepam is not so strong, yet super anxiety-relieving. During the day, I took 2mg of Bromazepam in the morning to quell anxiety / fear that sometimes started even during the day. These feelings of anxiety were released during the day, when I focused on this feeling of fear, or dealt with it. After 6 days, I feel so far clear again in my ego-feeling. This fear / fear feeling has weakened a lot. I’m struggling now only with insomnia, because of the overturned daily rhythm. But I am still afraid that it may come back at some point, so I always have an emergency tablet Alprazolam with me :-)) Azithromycin 1000mg has a half-life of 60+ hours !!! therefore this slow improvement. I do not even wish my worst enemies this fear / Furchtgefüle! This antibiotic should be taken off the market !!!

    Azithromycin for Angina tonsillaris

    have a 3 tablet pack prescribed (500mg). on the first day, shortly after taking it, I had a queasy feeling in my stomach and thought at first that I must break if it gets worse. After about an hour, the feeling was gone. On the second day, I first had problems falling asleep and then woke up at 4 o’clock and could not fall asleep, until about 9 after I got up about 1 hour. on the third day then again the same game, first I could not fall asleep again, when it worked then I was but after 2 hours awake again (3 clock). have then tried in vain to fall asleep again, unfortunately without success. I had a feeling in my head as if I had destroyed a box of energy drinks, at 7 I had to go to work anyway. I have drunk a lot today to bring the stuff out of the body and hope that it works better today. Strangely, I was not too tired today either. ‘m no longer take this drug, because it does not get me and I have the 3 day treatment now already behind me
