My 17 year old son was put on azithromycin for cold symptoms and developed Steven Johnson Syndrome, which he developed a rash all over his body, lips were swollen, and sores in the mouth. What a horrible reaction from this medicine. My son had to stay in the hospital for a whole week. They say the side effects are rare but Im hearing more eposides of side effects!

My glans are very swollen and and so is my tongue. This happens to me once maybe every month or so. Today I went to the ER and they said that I had a bacteria infection in my throat.

5 day pack--on my 4th day in the evening I was having severe gastrointestinal issues! I had very loose stools and pain--oh goodness the pain. I've never had such severe stomach cramps in my life! The kind that take your breath away. I did not take my final dose today (5th day)--currently I'm having a lot of noticeable heart palpitations (but I am at work so I'm stressed, but I cann ...
