Zithromax and c diff

Common Questions and Answers about Zithromax and c diff


Avatar n tn Though antibiotics can cause flareup, azithromycin use is not commonly assocaited with flareup. Sometimes there may be c-diff coinfection. So if symptoms persists you need to rule out this infection.
Avatar n tn I quit the Astelin antihistamine spray and the Rhinocort spray, because I felt it was making me worse and dizzy-er. I've been taking Bcomplex and Niacin and Vit. C. I run an air cleaner in my bedroom at all times. Went to see a chiropractor. Normally I wouldn't trust one, but he's a friend and has helped my husband with disk problems. He's used some kind of electrical vibrating thing where my neck meets my skull and now my ear's not hurting. (Could be him, could be the Prednisone).
Avatar m tn Organism resistant to Cipro, Ceftriaxone, and Zithromax. Seems to be susceptible to Doxycycline, but hospital only prescribed half the recomended dosage, dut to also injecting me with the Ceftriaxone and giving me zithromax. The Doxycycline got the swollen lymph nodes to almost stop hurting . They are only affected on the left side in the auxillary, cubital, groin and lower thigh. I feel like I get fevers, but temp is normal.
Avatar m tn There is a parasites test, and infectious organism test and c diff test. This would be 3 stool samples in different containers. Did you do 3? I am wondering if they suspect c diff since they gave generic flagyl which is used to treat that. But if C diff you would not want to take immodium because that will keep the toxin in you longer or infection if you have an infection.
Avatar f tn again it came back, this time the doc suggested i get my son (6 years) check as well and that he may be a carrier so we did, and he was indeed a carrier so he was prescribed amoxil and i was prescribed zithromax..... (i also took all the atibiotics properly and on time till they were finished.) i developed a bad yeast infection whichi used to get a lot before my son from diff soap tight jean ect...
280418 tn?1306329510 In fact, I have started having bothersome tinnitus in that time. So, he started me on rifampin, zithromax and omnicef with pulsing treatment (three days a week, every other day). I have to add flagyl as a fourth antibiotic soon, once a week. Needless to say, I have to visit the restroom - quickly and regularly. I feel drained, tired, my heart palpitated for about 3 hrs today, and I'm anxious. Is this herxing?
Avatar n tn I do trust my results on my first exposure, and from what I have read, if I did get exposed to chlamedia.... the round of Zithromax alone should have taken care of it... and if not the doxy hopefully would have. If she had chlamedia or not is not my biggest concern, there is a cure for chlamedia, not for HIV. Now the thing about chlam, is that if a person has it, the odds of that person contracting HIV are higher....
Avatar n tn I also had a recent (mar16) bout of c-diff, and was also treated with flagyl IV and PO. i am experiencing the same GI after affects and was wondering if there is anything to do to lessen the discomfort in the splenic region, how long should i expect the GI discomfort to last, and should i expect to be susceptable to c-diff in the future when i take ABOs?
Avatar m tn It causes me to have spasm coughing and if I cannot control this to 3 or 4 coughs my windpipe closes over making it hard to breath in or out. The last one about 2 years ago stopped me breathing in and out completely for 10 to 15 seconds and I thought I had bought it. The spasm cough causes it all and when it goes away (usually 4 to 5 days) things are relatively normal although a normal cough stays with me for weeks after.
1691275 tn?1322331107 These make Lyme more morbid and harder to treat/diagnose since the coinfections require diff ABX and treatments.
4373539 tn?1354712352 Then I was on Zithromax and Ceftin by mouth for another 3 weeks. I thought I would feel so much better off the meds. When the meds stopped I got headaches and aches again. Now I am on Amoxicillin 500 mg, 3x day for another 30 days. My bloodwork came back highly positive for Lyme at the end of the Zithromax and Ceftin???? Why?? What can I do to make sure I get this devil out of my body????
Avatar f tn But this drug carries its own unique risks, especially C. diff colitis, the nemesis of physicians treating chronic Lyme and related disorders. As always the need for probiotics can not be stressed enough. I prefer the combination of Sacchromyces with an Acidophilus mix.
977943 tn?1302258620 Hi all! Hope you dont mind if I jump the bandwagon as well! We have been ttc for almost a year now and have lost two angel babies at 11 and 5 weeks along. The first was a missed m/c which I had a D&C and the second I passed naturally. I am currently on my second round of 50mg Clomid and also took Estrodial to help with the "dryness" that Clomid makes. I'm now in my 2ww at 7DPO and am taking Progesterone in case we did conceive a little miracle.
Avatar f tn He went ahead and ordered Celiac disease, thyroid, h pylori and C diff. All negative. By December, I started having right sided abdominal pain to the right of the belly button. Itfelt like a sausage mass but very mobile. My urine also started to become bubbly. By January 2013, I went to my primary doctor and told him of the mass. He felt it and ordered a CT abd/pelvis with contrast - no abnormalities. This was also the time I started tenofovir for my hep B.
Avatar n tn She has not complained of any knee pain yet and that is usually the first onset to know her fever is coming , but then again this whole month almost everyday she has been getting sharp headaches on and off.. The tests he is going to take is. CBC (with auto diff,PLT.) Strep screen .Ferritine (IL/TNF) CRP, ESR, SerumAmbloyid A protien, ASO titers, IgA, IgD, IgF,IgG.
Avatar n tn I was trying to write it off as the toilet paper, etc! But then I became more and more worried, and began to research it and that's when I came across this website. After reading everything I decided to go see my OBGYN. He of course tested me for Herpes, and even though I had read everything that you have all been through, and knowing that none of your tests had come back positive, I was still nervous. He also tested me for a yeast infection.
Avatar n tn I get the feeling that they are like little paper cuts all inside, and they are excruciating when you tinkle. I have tried a steroidal cream, perscribed by my gyne, but it is messy and gooey, and I really don't like using it, because it doesn't really do much. Do you notice they get worse before or after your period? I know what you mean about feeling like, "what the hell is this?" I am in a monogomous relationship for 6 years, with the same partner, who is now my husband.
Avatar n tn I have had chronic bacterial infections in my sinuses, tonsels and throat for the past two months and have been on many rounds of antibiotics, my infections are gone but I was left with a strong deep cough and now phlegm and swelling in my throat. No doctors have been able to tell me what it could be, my ear nose throat specialist said it was most likely acid reflux disease, but I don't buy that.
Avatar n tn Which comes first, the dizziness or the stress? Rehab has not worked, and the doctor claims it's needed b/c she has damaged nerve endings, and nothing else can help. Eight yrs ago an ear infection and some years later problems after being in a pool. She can't stand it any more. I am reading all your suggestions and am emailing her some in Colombia. Will keep you updated. If all fails here we're hitting Mass Gen'l's special ear division.
1647691 tn?1363727302 Last week (July 14), I went for my 2nd ultrasound. We were all suprised to see 2 yolks in opposite polar ends of the sac! Remember I only had 1 embryo transferred back. My doc thought she saw a vague heartbeat in one but wanted me to come again today (July 17) to confirm a stronger heartbeat (or hearbeats if both were viable). So we were kind of excited at the prospect of getting monozygotic twins!!! So once again we waited and this morning we were eager to get a confirmation that all is well.
Avatar n tn I ranged from 170 to 200 pounds consistently for the last 15 years. I did have an epidural during labor and I had to have a C-section due to fetal distress. I don't know if that could be related to this issue. I am grateful not to have the chronic pain throughout the day that many deal with on a day to day basis. If I have to live with this I can, but I would just like to know what may have prompted this problem and what makes it continue. Also I am concerned about the lack of sleep.
604185 tn?1233964457 Hi all, I'm in the 2ww also. Had my trigger on 10/14 and 2 IUIs on 10/15 and 10/16. Feel casual, apathetic and indifferent, as if I know its not going to work. Had 3 failed IUIs and 2 failed IVFs in this past year. Good luck and SSBD to all of you...
Avatar n tn i have had 3 iuis and going for my 4 today, with the other 3 even though i wasnt pregnant i had very sore breasts and felt very bloted i learned after having so many iuis to expect that i guess that comes from the hcg shot, i never was nausiuos though,that could be a good sign some woman know it the minute they become pregnant,and you could be one of them,i know the two week wait can be unbearable,but try and hang in there and try not to take a hpt test for a few more days,unlike i did and get a
1417531 tn?1365601325 I've gone in the past- first ivf round, got a bfp then m/c shortly after... did it again and got a bfn. So I'm not sure if I want to invest the $85/session to go again. Any thoughts?
Avatar n tn and after Prednisone tapers, Zithromax, and Levaquin and more steroids and inhalers, I am off the meds (which, now I believe that I felt worse on them than before I started them) and still having episodes of feeling as though I cannot get my breath which in turn make it worse because then anxiety kicks in! I have been racking my brain to figure out what in the world brought all of this on. I am 36 and a slim build.
