    I have already felt severe side effects after a short time. Muscle weakness, rapid heartbeat, palpitations, dizziness, tingling, restlessness, anxiety and insomnia. If I did not have to take the antibiotic, I would have discontinued it after just 2 days. I hope the effect is optimal, that it is well worth the effort.

    Clarithromycin for Bronchitis (acute)

    In the beginning I was pretty much better, had the worst cough of my 44 year old / young life. The coughing stimulus was now clearly and loud to hear shortly after taking only before falling asleep, not during the day (that was already a relaxation). Now, in retrospect, I realized that last night I was as awake as ever and had a headache for several days (but can also come from a strong cough). I generally sleep well, fast and through. But sleep was out of the question, wide awake: O. This morning on the third day I took the tablet (AB) again and it has probably passed almost an hour, suddenly tachycardia and total inner restlessness, which scared me. Typically, it was Wednesday noon, closed doctor’s office, wanted to ask if I should settle the AB, which I have now decided alone. There is nothing worse for me than palpitations and the associated panic attacks. In addition, I take a blood pressure-lowering remedy by the beginning of the menopause. If everything is not bad enough, you do not feel well well anyway and then you just get those side effects. I have an appointment tomorrow morning anyway with my family doctor, to whom I must unfortunately say that I have discontinued this variety of AB, cough then rather a day longer than to feel these side effects again. Have now drunk a lot, in the hope that these non-influencing side effects reappear, is already bad enough by the menopause and bronchitis. I do not want to take this again !!! I also have that weird taste, so I could stand it alone. Diarrhea, of course, but sometimes does not hurt, you lose weight, the only advantage. After taking it I quickly feel a kind of drowsiness ..

    Side effects: Panic attack; Unrest; Palpitations

    Clarithromycin for Bronchitis (acute)

    What a hellish stuff! I took the first dose on Tuesday night and did not notice anything yet. For the next morning after taking the second pill: stomach cramps, fluid stool, palpitations and a disgusting taste in the mouth. Dare to doubt that I will endure this …

    Clarithromycin for To cough

    Hello, I got the drug prescribed by my doctor today because I have been suffering from one or more colds for weeks. I took the first tablet around 10.30 am and had acute side effects: an overflow here. All side effects gradually appeared in parallel. Taking the first tablet 10.30 clock: 12:00 o’clock suddenly appearing severe nausea 12:30 o’clock mild heart rate 12:45 clock strong tachycardia, initial disorientation 13:00 clock dizziness, weak knees, overwhelming weakness in the whole body, speech difficulties then have me immediately packed in bed. Otherwise I have little problems with medication but this one almost killed me, I think. I had very painful heart spasms throughout the afternoon, increased heart rate and panic. It is a scary feeling when you feel how your own heart is cramping and only seconds later / weiterraast. In addition, I could hardly move, my legs and arms were as heavy as if I had to carry 100 talents. I was incredibly thirsty and when my husband came home, he said that my face was completely puffy and pale as lime. Meanwhile, the intake is 10 h ago and I still have a headache and swollen mucous membranes in the mouth. Feels like after an anesthetic injection at the dentist. I will discontinue taking it immediately, because I think a wide pill of this kind would have dire consequences for me. Can not give any recommendation for this medicine.

    Clarithromycin for Bronchitis (acute)

    For about a hour after taking, I had severe restlessness, tremors and weakness. Later, intestinal cramps and diarrhea were added. I had expected that. But this panic-like restlessness associated with racing heart was surprising, very unpleasant and not tolerable. Another intake was unthinkable.

    Clarithromycin for Flu

    I took the drug for 2 days. On the first day: metallic taste in the mouth, that was still ok., But then – at night we started – with sleep difficulties and a slight tachycardia. But I did not overvalue that … Sorry … On the 2nd day (all in all, I had 4 tablets – 2 per day, as prescribed, ingested): The flu symptoms were actually gone well, but the heart … In the second night, I thought I would die, that I would have a heart attack right away. Dying with 40 antibiotics !!! Dreadful!! In addition, I have to say in retrospect, that after taking the 2nd Tablets on the first day in the evening was severely depressed (I just remember everything after I have read the comments!) I have now stopped taking. The last dose is now about 14 hours ago and I still have tachycardia. The drug is immediately taken off the market. I am considering sending this comment to the manufacturer. I am horrified !!! I would like to warn all people about this preparation.

    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.

    After a gastroscopy, the heliobacter was diagnosed. Then I got Metronidazole STADA 400mg and Clarilind 500mg for 7 days in the morning and in the evening 1 Tabeltte. Within the 7 days I had severe sweating, fatigue, palpitations, sleep disturbances and a constant bitter taste. First I put all of these side effects on the weather, as it was very hot and humid at the time. After the end of the intake, sore throat started and burned in my mouth. My tongue showed a thick white coating, which is still not right after 8 days of receipt. In the oral cavity, but rather in the cheek pouches, there are now open spots that do not even think about healing. Eating is out of the question.

    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 …

    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)

    SIMPLY CRUELY! Probably the worst drug I have ever taken. I had to take the 500s twice a day. (In hindsight, the dose too high !!) Already on the first evening of taking I have tachycardia in bed … In the following days, the side effects were getting worse: – tachycardia – increased heart rate – panic attacks – the feeling of dying right – Skin rash – inner restlessness – extreme tension – swollen palate – confusion – drowsiness – oppression, threatening perception of the world – extreme feelings of anxiety – nightmares – the feeling of losing myself, of going crazy I did not dare to stop taking the medication for fear of resistance. I would have done it !! Before I was a normal young woman and after taking a nervous wreck !!! I’ve never had to deal with anxiety, panic, mental disorders in general. It is now 6 WEEKS ago I discontinued the drug and I am ALWAYS having problems !! Still fear thoughts, deaf ears, sometimes increased pulse and the worst: the feeling that my personality has changed completely. I hope so much that I will finally return to normal soon, as before! ABSOLUTELY NOT RECOMMENDEDHas anyone had similar experiences??? Would be glad if someone contacts me.

    I got heart racing immediately. Could not sleep. Was totally restless. Itchiness. My tongue turned brown-black, smell and taste are disturbed. For me, the drug was unacceptable, so I dropped it off immediately.

    Clarithromycin for Laryngitis

    After the 4th day of treatment, severe sleep disturbances, presumably due to ingestion, occur on the 7th and last day of tachycardia, tremor, hypertension several days after discontinuation of the drug, most likely due to this. In addition, occurrence of vaginal fungus. Personally, I did not tolerate this medicine at all.

    I’ve still felt side effects so clearly: insomnia, tremors and nervousness, diarrhea, rapid heartbeat, drowsiness. I strongly advise against this medication. In my case I would have – as I know by now – just as good Peniciln and the dose was very high. After four days, I realize that the side effects have affected me more than the actual illness. I am therefore very angry and unsettled.

    Clarithromycin for Sinusitis; Bronchitis (acute)

    For four days taken against sinusitis and bronchitis, no stomach / intestinal complaints as with other antibiotics. However, every morning I had a metallic taste in my mouth. After the 6th tablet I was awake at night, had sweats and tachycardia, but it passed relatively quickly (about 30 minutes). I had the feeling something terrible was about to happen, started to cry and almost did not calm down anymore. The next day I went to the family doctor, who advised me to sell the tablets immediately. Against the original symptoms super, however, the side effects have been absolutely unacceptable.

    Clarithromycin for Lung infection

    Have taken the drug Clarithromycin 500 due to a delayed pneumonia (7 days in the morning and evening each 1×500). At first only metallic taste and a bit churned. On days two and three then crass side effects have occurred, insomnia with total over-revulsion, hallucinations, severe chest pain left, permanent tachycardia, nosebleeds, stomach pain, diarrhea, so almost nothing is not on the list of side effects … have the drug then arbitrarily immediately discontinued and it took about 1 full day before the symptoms subsided (not completely disappeared). After consultation with my stressed doctor on clarithromycin an unusual reaction indicates an intolerance, stop immediately (I had already done so at that time). A year ago I took a combination antibiotic treatment for Heliobacter, including clarithromycin, which I had no side effects at the time. It was definitely borderline and the strong pressure in the left chest, the heart racing and the hallucinations, I also panic. Luckily, it stayed the same and the reaction is slowing down … nevertheless, I’m now warned about this drug / drug and extremely careful about antibiotics. As a short edge info, I am a vegetarian (so no meat / fish antibiotics, etc.), have a gluten intolerance and Hashimoto.
