Comment:
Was prescribed azithromycin a few days ago in the form of the 5-day Zpack. I took my first dose 36 hours ago and have been experiencing persistent stomach cramping and watery stool.

Was out with strep a while back and I am allergic to amoxicillin, so I usually get screwed when it comes to antibiotics. Wen't to see the doc, he prescribed me this. Had to take one daily for 5 days, by day two I was already feeling 10000 times better than I was the previous week. 10/10 would take if I came down with strep again. I also didn't have a problem with any side effects.
