    Clarithromycin for Pharyngitis

    Clarithromycin only three days (2x a day) taken. Within a short amount of time, I got a lot of abdominal pain, a change in my sense of smell, anxiety and dizziness. I advise everyone from this drug! I’ve never had such symptoms before, so I assume it’s related to taking this drug. In addition, the symptoms slowly resolved after about four days.

    Clarithromycin for Otitis

    Carnival I had a severe flu with bronchitis, Neben- and Stirnhöhlenvereiterung and middle ear infection. My ENT doctor told me about clarithromycin. I took it for 3 weeks. After a few days, some things no longer tasted to me. A little later some things smelled different. Disgusting a taste and smell I had never noticed. Unfortunately, it is not gone until today. I can hardly eat fruit. I can not drink any more mineral water, apple juice spritzer, wine or champagne. The shampoo I always take smells disgusting to me. How long does such a side effect last?

    Clarithromycin for Difficulties swallowing; Cold

    After my wife initially suffered from a flu-like effect on head and neck pain and a strong cough, the symptoms came to my notice a week later; only that my swallowing and speaking difficulties were even more pronounced. Two tablets Clarithromycin HEXAL (one in the morning the second evening) relieved the symptoms on the first day. The drug was taken by both of us for five days. After that we had to realize that the sense of smell and taste had completely disappeared and so far has not returned. If odor and taste return, I would love to tell you. The instruction leaflet did point out possible changes in the sense of taste and smell; If you had warned against odor and loss of taste there, we would never have taken the medicine.
