    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 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.

    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.

    Clarithromycin for Helicobacter pylori gastritis

    Immediately: Metallic taste; About 2 hours after taking the headache began, which remained more or less the whole time; severe pain when moving the eyeballs; from the second night (after the third dose): insomnia and about 6 hours after taking the tablet severe nausea that lasts about as long. In addition, extreme dry mouth and occasional muscle pain in the legs, so that I could no longer sit or lie down. The side effects are due to clarithromycin, as I have previously received and tolerated penicillin. I already took omeprazole one week before and did not experience any serious side effects (except bloating and muscle pain in the first few days). Since the side effects increased after each tablet intake and I was finally in a terrible condition, I stopped the therapy after the 4th dose. After about 3 days I was fine again.
