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

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.

Comment:
Azithromycin 250mg. was given to me for Acute Bronchitis along with Prednisone. The 1st round of medicine was in early Oct. 2012. After taking the antibiotic for 2 days I got painful sores inside my mouth, on lips, cheeks and tongue. It did not cure the Bronchitis so 3 weeks later my Dr. put me on it again. The same thing happened with the sores in my mouth so I am sure it is the Azithromycin 250m ... Show Full Comment
