Clarithromycin bad taste

Common Questions and Answers about Clarithromycin bad taste


Avatar n tn been given acourse of clarithromycin antibiotics is leaving a very bad taste in my mouth is this ok? how long if okbefore they start working?
Avatar n tn Now I said I brushed my tongue and have for years but it dawned on me to also brush the sides of my tongue as well - that did the trick for me. No more bad taste. However, a metallic taste in the mouth can be due to a variety of causes - from medication you may be taking to dental problems. Not drinking enough water can contribute to problems with taste. Increase your intake of water and see if it helps.
Avatar f tn Also, while it's in your tummy, acid is breaking them down, so sometimes you can burp the taste up too. In addition, if you ever taste something bad, it tends to stick with you, probably part of a living being's genetics where people need to remember for a lifetime not to eat certain things. Some medicines say you can take them with or without food. If so, then I always take mine right after I eat, altho you may do better taking them before.
4939681 tn?1361302899 com and looked at the list of side effects for Biaxin, and the bad taste is noted, but is not in the 'serious side effect' section, and is instead in the 'other symptoms' section at the bottom. Doesn't mean you shouldn't call your doc, tho, if you are concerned. Take care!
Avatar f tn I’ve been suffering from the same symptoms everyone’s calling… chronic sinusitis. The symptoms were a really bad, bad, horrible smell coming from my nasal passage and throat. Sometimes the smell got to be so bad I though it was coming from my pores. I went to see my primary care physician about 3 times… a Ear Nose and Throat doctor once… My Primary Care Physicians gave me meds for drainage and an antibiotic. It wasn’t working. I didn’t think a cure was in sight.
Avatar m tn I am taking clarithromycin for sinus infection but I am taking Tylenol 3 for some different pain.Is it OK to take to them the same time?
Avatar n tn I was given a prescription (500mg -20) from someone that hadn't been used yet and i've only taken 2 because it leaves such a bad taste in my mouth. If it is useful for my infection then I will suffer the taste & nausea and continue on with my 3rd dose.
Avatar n tn I aslo noticed that the phlem I cough up now tastes like a bitter medicine taste. Is that normal? Its also a bad cough with post nasel drip. Just wanted to know if anyone could please help me with this. Serious? or just Bronchitis? Also I do not smoke cigerettes,(I quite 10 years ago, smoked for 11 years)but smoke marijuana regularly.
Avatar m tn I know that Amoxicillin sometimes causes bad taste in mouth and you can have changed perception of smell/taste, but how long will it last?! I don't have changes in my taste at all; I did have foul, bitter taste while I've been taking Augmentin, but don't have it now.
Avatar m tn My tongue is in constant mild pain, and the swelling has gotten so bad (although it doesn't hurt that bad) at points that it has developed lacerations on the side and started bleeding. Also, I started having joint pains in my knees, hips, and knuckles about 8 days ago.
Avatar n tn Now this is new dentist and her normal proceedure is to put a piece of clove soaked in oil in the hole where the tooth was removed...never lat that happen again the taste made me sick. A week later I had 2 units of cleaning. I'm in the progess of having my upper right wisdom pulled which is cracked and seeping out **** that tasts nasty.
Avatar m tn During this period I developed a total loss of energy requiring either sitting or lying down for up to an hour often extending to 3-4 hours at a time. Completely removed my taste buds and a subsequent total loss of appetite which just added to the overall energy loss. During the worst of the period, up to first 16 days, I felt listless and slightly nauseated most of the time with the cough occuring regularly throughout.
Avatar f tn pylori I take antiobics for 7 days (Amoxicillin 500mg) (Clarithromycin 500mg) (Lansoprazole 30mg) I finished two days ago the pain still the same I don't know what happening inside my stomach, my GP said I will have re-test after 3 weeks. I read in the other forum about Biokult probiotics it is good after the course of antibiotics? & Mastika gum & manuka honey? I ordered online Mastika gum & manuka honey.

Avatar f tn I went to the doctor today and was diagnosed with a duodenal ulcer. I'm on Amoxicillin, Clarithromycin and Prevacid for two weeks. I just started the medication tonight, so we'll see how it goes. So far I have a horrible taste in my mouth from the Clarithromycin and my stomach feels "iffy," but it's felt that way non stop for two months, so I can handle it for a couple more weeks. Here's to better days!
Avatar m tn I came outside, then laid ther for 2 minutes or so and then proceeded to throw the condomo away, turned on the light and everything was allright except I noticed a bit of blood on it. Cunnilingus didnt taste like blood what so ever but I still asked her I she was on her period or finishing but she denied it and played dumb. Then we laid naked hugging kind of spooning for about 40 minutes. I then fingered her again until she came, no more vaginal because I had no more condoms left.
Avatar f tn Some say they can taste the olive oil if they are not accustomed to it, but very quickly the taste becomes undetectable and now food *not* cooked in olive oil tastes strange to me, esp. if it's been cooked with some junky oil. Highly recommended for all kinds of reasons. Oh, and get the 'extra virgin' --- it's from the first pressing of the olives, and no chemicals are used to extract the oil from the olives at that stage. Pure as it gets.
Avatar m tn Welcome to MedHelp Lyme -- Glad you have found a good Lyme doc -- that makes a great difference in diagnosis and treatment. You say, "He said I could be looking at 3-6 months of treatment, possibly IV." There is not a one-size-fits-all approach to Lyme, for several reasons, and 3 to 6 months is not a particularly long treatment period, based on my experience and that of others.
Avatar m tn I didn't know where to post this, i also posted in colon cancer Ok so for the past few months i have had anal itching i'm 31 slightly overweight and Male I use to smoke but quit 3 years ago and i'm a social drinker, I was on antibiotics for H-Pylori. I had to take Clarithromycin, Teva-Rabeprazole Ec, and Metronidazole. For 7 days. After i was done the treatment about 48 hours later i had a bowelmovement that was harder then usual and bleed bright red blood on the stool itself and toliet paper.
798555 tn?1292791151 Seven years ago, I was treated for babesia with Mepron and azithromycin for a period of four months. I never had any bad reaction to it, just slowly got better and better, tho until the Lyme was treated, I still had that going on in the background, of course. The Mepron/zith worked well, and when that was completed, I straightway began treatment for Lyme with two other meds.
Avatar f tn The treatment should have been Clarithromycin in the initial week. Almost always the dx comes too late. But don't worry, it should be over soon.
Avatar m tn I notice if I catch it early (which means I carry antibiotics with me all the time) it is not as nearly as bad. Doctors have diagnosed this as Asthma, chronic bronchitis, bronchial asthma etc etc. All different specialists seem to have a different prognosis and the recommended pills over the years have not really done any good. None of them seem to relate to the closure of the windpipe and cant give me a straight answer when I ask them.
Avatar n tn because i dont want turbinate surgery but i cant sleep and breathe because they are swelling so bad and im getting worse cause my muscles,joints are achy. thanks in advance. any advice greatly appreciated.
Avatar f tn In my20+ years of practice, this regimen has been successful. However, if you don't respond the regimen, I would switch to clarithromycin+metronidazole. If the last regimen is still not working, I would use vancomycin.If antibiotics is properly administered, dental infections generally subsides within 3 days. PLease go back to your surgeon addressing the issue.
Avatar n tn Dr., Can bad breath be related to H. pylori? I have: . a very bad taste upon wakening in the morning . spit up bad tasting saliva in the shower every morning . the bad taste is with me all day and after several brushings and tongue scrapings . had sinus surgery to remove an infection in my cheek and to straighten my deviated septum . had my tonsils removed . had several complete oral checkups .
Avatar n tn Good to know other people are experiencing this "orange tongue' thing. I called my doctor and he said he had never heard of such a thing and didn't seem too worried. I am paranoid that I have stinky breath as a result. My husband says I don't but my 2 and 4 year are forever telling me "Mommy, your breath stinks!" Has any one else experienced bad breath or a bad taste in your mouth with this disorder?
Avatar f tn you could get too much. Someone correct me if I'm wrong. The one thing I did get from the articles is, the bad cholesterol which the virus attaches itself to, is eliminated out of the body with grapefruit.
Avatar f tn They gave me some pink medicine kind of like pepto bismol to help w that nasty taste, and it helped but only for a few hours did it not taste or smell such as bad. Xray showed I had over 10 pounds of poop backed up, but luckily no bowel instruction. Gave me milk of magnesia to make me poop. See here in a few hours when it kicks in if it cures me. Dr informed me that the percocet (codine w/ tylenol ) made me that constipated bc on it for chronic pelvic pain for several months straight.
Avatar n tn After a week yesterday,we are on the 3rd oral antibiotic, because she is either getting side effects and/or is not able to take the medicine without fighting and crying because they taste very bad. One of the antibiotics is Clarithromycin, and just got yesterday Amoxycillin. I just wanted to know the real signs of an infected chalazion (per some posts here, hers has no blood or any drainage), are there any bad side effects if antibiotics are mixed with food/juice/milk?
