Went to the doctor for a sore throat and cough with sinus pressure that didn't get better after a week of OTC's. Doctor said I had acute sinusitis. He prescribed a Z-pak for me and I was skeptical. I have IBS and have had gastric bypass surgery, so antibiotics are hit or miss with me. Every single antibiotic I have taken for either UTI, tonsillitis or a tooth infection I have gotten st ...

Was sick for five days. High fever, infected sinuses, clogged ears, sore throat, wheezing. It was bad. I finally broke down and went to the doctor during my lunch break. He gave me a Z-Pack and within two hours of taking the first dose, I started to improve. It's now day three and I am nearly cured, just a little left-over congestion and a light cough.

I will never take this antibiotic again! Ended up in the ER with severe stomach pains and getting many shots to stop it! Just so you understand the pain, I would have rather been having contractions in childbirth! Horrible drug!

Comment:
I get frequent bacterial sinus infections and bacterial bronchitis as secondary infections from allergies or colds (Note: if this drug did not work for you it's probably because you had the viral form and no antibiotic will help with a virus. Sometimes doctors prescribe an antibiotic JUST IN CASE it is bacterial). This is the only antibiotic that consistently works for me and my doctor and I ... Show Full Comment
