Dear Grandpa, The ventricular arrhythmias associated with Zithromax (azithromycin) are very rare and usually require the administration of another drug such as an antifungal agent at the same time. There is no known association with atrial arrhythmias. I would guess that the timing of the two was conincidence.
You will end up (if the infection is bacterial) with an infection resistant to antibiotics. See a physician for a proper prescription and antibiotic. Many physician choose zithromax (the Z-pak) as the broad-spectrum antibiotic of choice for a lung infection.
I want to be on the medication for the shortest time period possible and select the one that has the least mental and intestinal side effects, as those are two huge problems for me right now. The option I have been given is a five day zithromax dosing, or 7 days of Amoxicillin at 500 mg 3xday. I am VERY VERY drug sensitive at this point (tylenol raises my heart rate 30% after one dose), but I also want to make sure I am taking the most effective drug to knock out the infection.
hpv, sphilis, gonorrhea, chlamydia and herpes are the risks from oral sex - none of those are effectively treated with amoxicillin so you are wasting your time and risking your health by doing what you have asked about. be smart about your sex life!!!
I always ask that they dont give Kennedy Amoxicillin and this is exactly why! Zithromax is about the only one that dont give her diarhea. And listen to what Andi said about her bottom thats the worst.
In May of 2012 I was on Amoxicillin due to a sever sinus infection and we determind I was allergice to it due to the hives and me having symptoms related to a nasty yeast infection(heavy sour smelling discharge, abnormal periods, itching, burning, and sensitivity to even mild vaginal soaps). I returned to the doctor and I was given a Pap smear, and an STD screening, both of which came negative with the ONLY abnormality of an elevated white blood cell count.
I'm only on amoxicillin right now. I've tried doxy and Zithromax but I had bad reactions (not just herxing) to both. I assume he's going to try a new one next time, but for now I'm doing what I can. I've been taking magnesium for the past 6 months and I do detox baths every chance I get. I went to my pcp but he wasn't helpful. Pipergirl, did you ever find a solution to your knee pain?
I don't notice any herx patterns, my symptoms seem to come and go with no warning. I started Amoxicillin about two weeks ago, and started feeling better within the week, but then about 10 days later, the more annoying symptoms returned. Anyone know if you can herx 10 days after a change of meds? I thought it would happen within the first couple vs. almost two weeks later. Any feedback or similar experiences would be appreciated.
So I went to see an ergent care, he gave me a shot for gonaria and 1 gram oral zithromax. Went away for a week and came back. Than saw my primary and she gave me a different antibiotic, same thing happen so I go back and she gives me amoxicillin, pain left for a week and came back. So I've read on line about larger doses so I ordered 1000mg zithromax online and took 2000mg at once and the same thing happened again. I anyone could help with a suggestion I would be very greatful.
I've had success with Amoxicillin and Amoxil in the past for this but don't have enough info to help my MD make a decision. I'm too far along to think about stopping tx now. Five weeks left! Also, anyone ever heard of taking "Colloidal Silver " for infections, and how well can a damaged liver handle that? Thanks for any and all suggestions!
I did just hear back from my doctor and they are putting me back on Zithromax and Malarone and stopping the Doxy. I wasn't tested for any other coinfections other than Babesia, but that is one of my questions at my next office visit. I have a couple other questions for you. It sounds like you are very knowledgable and have been dealing with Lyme for a long time (lucky you). :) Have you ever tried any of the pulsar treatments or cell cleansing footbathes as part of your lyme treatment?
I got a shot for gonorrhea and had to take zithromax. A few days later I developed an eye infection and still have that eye infection. Is it possible I could have gotten gonorrhea in the eye from touching myself since I was infected? How is this treated if the shot didn't take care of it?
I think he/she should have probably went in the direction of a broad-spectrum antibiotic, i.e. Amoxicillin vs. Zithromax. I have seen Zithromax ordered for Strep Throat, but not that often.
COLUMBIA, SC – Data from a large cohort of patients enrolled at US Veterans Affairs (VA) medical centers support recent conclusions that treatment with the antibiotic azithromycin (Zithromax/Zmax, Pfizer) significantly increases the risk of death and cardiac arrhythmia in the first five days of treatment[1].
I went back and asked for an std test, i have been seeing 2 guys for the last 2 months, since my soon to be ex husband is out of the pic. clamidia and gonorhea both negative, but the Dr had given me a Zithromax pack just in case and some more potent yeast infection cream. The cream hurt bad and the Zpack did nothing.
I finished my 5 days of Zithromax yesterday and it's helped, the pain is gone and I have some energy back, but this doesn't feel like a permanent fix. There's too many other symptoms that it didn't address at all. I went to my GP on Monday and he's just no help. He suggested nasal rinses which I already do, and even gave me a prescription for saline solution! What doctor thinks saline solution needs a script?!
most of them said they used Zithromax 500mg 2x a day for 2 days and their gonorrhea is gone. Can you tell something about these.
Both episodes have responded to Amoxicillin within 24 hours, with her showing interest in food again and increasing energy until a week later she is back to her pre-sick, active, playful, permanently hungry self. The first time she had a mild fever but the most recent time her temperature was normal. The last bout of illness was quite a lot worse than the first -- she seemed so ill that I really worried that she might not pull through.
My eight year old is allergic to amoxicillin, zithromax, clindamycin, and cefzil. We have seen an allergist, and he said there are no tests for antibiotics and that "we have a problem." Can someone please guide me in what to do next? My doctor was hoping the allergist would help guide us for future treatments. I am fearful for any infection like strep throat, ear or skin infections, we have run out of options.
I went to the doctor and was diagnosed with chlamydia and tested negative for gonorrhea, syphilis, and HIV, I was prescribed the 1000mg dose of zithromax, I took the pills and ate two hours after I took the pill (the directions said take 1 hour prior to eating).
at this time due to the zithromax or the amoxicillin. you need to test a month after taking the Zithromax to ensure not false neg. or false pos.
Zithromax took for 5 days as directed One week later prescribed Amoxycillin 2x875mg twice daily for 7 days. On the 4th day of the amoxy I woke up with hives mostly on arms neck and chest and a little red dwelling around lower left eye (lid swollen) (i stopped the amoxy) I took Benedryl 1x25mg four times 4 hours apart. This seemed to greatly reduce the hives and some were completely gone by the end of the day.
He also think it could be all kind of infection so he gave me Clavam 1000 (Amoxicillin) for 8 days (2 times a day). Now, I'm taking it the third day and the testicles are still swollen most of the day and I have a discomforting feeling in my spermatic cord (at least I think it's there). Still, the tip of my penis is as dry as it can be, no sign of a discharge. Do you think it could be Gonorrhea and if so, is Clavam the right medication?
I am wondering if anyone else gets black stool after treatment with antibiotics (cipro, zithromax). I took these for a mild UTI, and I had severe constipation too. Yesterday, my stool had normal texture, but it was almost black. I did take acidophilous during the antibiotic treatment. I told my doctor about it, and he wasn't worried about it since my CBC tests were normal. any ideas?
My daughter is 16 months, her doctor has said he believes she has asthma, but throughout this asthma diagnosis she has had a pneumonia 4 times already, I am truly beginning to be terrified that something else is going on and needs to be cured before it gets any worse, I dont know what to do, she's been on zithromax, augmentin, amoxicillin and nothing has worked, he has had her or singulair and albuterol syrup for months, but the cough and wheezing continue to come back after a couple weeks.
I was treated with my gram of Zithromax and sent my boyfriend to get tested and treated. On October 6 I was retested negative, as was my boyfriend the following week. My only symptom was excess, yellow discharge. This began in late July and I had to go to the OB/GYN a couple times before the final diagnosis. She believed it was BV. I was placed on Flagyl first, followed by clindamycin.

I self medicated and took 3 days worth of amoxicillin (500mg, twice a day). That didn't work, so I went to an urgent care and was prescribed Ciproflaxon. After 2 days of taking those (500mg), I went to the STD clinic. They said my gonorrhea test came up negative, but they thought that is what I had. They said my test came up negative because of the medications I took. It's been 7 days and I still have slight burning when I pee. My pain level was at a 10, now its around a 6.
