    I had taken this medicine previously for a lung infection with no problems. This time I took it for an abscessed tooth. Within a few hours, I had extreme diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, and cold sweats..felt I was going to die..as if I had a very, very bad case of the flu. I am also allergic to penicillin. I did not take another dose of the Azithromycin. Original dose was 250 mg.

    I was prescribed this medication for treatment of a sinus infection which is not listed? It cleared my sinus infection but I did have terrible stomach cramps the third day. Overall I am satisfied with this medication.

    Had a cough for over 3 weeks when I started this antibiotic and found out I also had an ear infection. First night terrible upset stomach/pains. Second night experienced diarrhea. Thought about stopping the drug but of course the last three nights, no side effects and felt 110% BETTER.

    Had some stomach cramping with nausea. Only on day one. Hoping that it will go away soon. Sort of uncomfortable.
