    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!

    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!

    Doctor prescribed me 1 250mg tablet a day for 5 days. It was a load of crap and did not do anything to help with my sinus infection or my Upper Respitory Infection.
