Zithromax for sore throat

Common Questions and Answers about Zithromax for sore throat


Avatar f tn When I recently took the Zithromax 250mg for sore throat I started feeling better. Like I said all of my symptoms went away but I didn't take the proper dosage to cure any std and I also didn't take it on the last day cause my head started bothering me. This is why I feel it is either chlamydia or gonorreah because how I was feeling while I was on the Zithromax. I am not pregnant . Haven't had sex in months so that is not a possibility.
Avatar n tn Zithromax doesn't always clear up all infections and 5+ weeks is a bit long for a sore throat. M-a-n-y things are possible, including an unresolved infection, allergies causing post-nasal drip, gastroesophogeal reflux disease, to name a few. You need to work with your doctor to figure out why you are still having a sore throat and other symptoms & keep in touch with their office until your symptoms clear. Wishing you the best of luck!
Avatar m tn You should not be taking zithromax for six weeks. Antibiotics are toxic, and should not be used unless there is an actual infection. Prescribing zithromax for six weeks, withiout evidence of an actualo bacterial infection, on the remote chance it might cure asthma represents questionable reasoning. There was a recent death from excessive use of zithromax. There is a reason they are prescribed in a packet with only so many capsules.
Avatar m tn Hi I performed oral sex on a girl 2 weeks ago, a few days after the event i started to get a sore throat, it doesn't hurt or so, it's just abit annoying, i read somewhere that i should just wait abit and see if the sore throat would dissapear. However, after 2 weeks now, it has not. I have no other symptoms or anything, i just wonder what could be the cause of this and what i should do to cure this.
Avatar f tn My doctor prescribed me Zithromax (z-pack for 5 days) after I have had bronchitis now for a long time. I was so terrified of this medication because I've heard it can cause heart palpitations and ventricular arrhythmias I didn't even take it until the illness got so bad I almost couldn't get out of bed. Well, I finally broke down and took it because I am so sick and am on day 2 and am having real scary palpitations. My doctor assured me this would not happen.
Avatar f tn I visited my boyfriend in Paris and he had a bad cough that would wake him up at night. But he didn't seem sick at all. So 6 days after being with him I got a sore throat, which turned into a sinus infection). After doing sinus irrigations, drinking a lot of hot water with apple cider vinger, and eating well for 2 weeks - I seem to be better; however, my throat is now hurting again (it never seemed to go away completely, but mostly).
Avatar f tn Exactly 8 days after that, I started getting a moderate sore throat (one white spot), nasal allergies, congestion and phlegm. The sore throat lasted a few days, (I was given a 3 day Zithromax pak) but the congestion is still around. I know its probable I may have caught my toddler's cold (who had it a few days before my own symptoms) since I was taking close care of her, but I cant help but worry if its STD related. Can it be pharyngeal gonorrhea I'm hearing so much about?
Avatar m tn Now I have a sore throat. The Dr. gave me zithromax but it didn't do anything. I've had the sore throat for 8 weeks now. I've been doing test after test but they are all coming back negative. I have an aids and throat culture being done that I'm waiting on the results for. Aside from aids is there anything else it could be?
Avatar m tn I had a bad sore throat about 9 days ago and the doctor prescribed zithromax to treat it (not strep-throat). So I began taking the antibiotics. On day 3 I saw my doctor about the urethra discomfort. I tested negative for chlamydia and he diagnosed me with NGU. So on day four, I took 2 doses of 500mg of Zithromax within ~8 hours apart. However, he prescribed taking 1g in 1 dose. It is about 30 hours after taking the first 500mg and I still have slight discomfort.
Avatar n tn I started to get a slight sore throat about 2-3 days later. This was not a bad sore throat - almost like post nasal drip. The sore throat is the only symptom that I have - no fever or anything else. I feel that I have to try clear my throat all the time, and now my tongue is starting to hurt - probably due to clearing my throat. Anyways, I got worried and got a prescription for Zithromax and took a single 2g dose 9 days after the exposure.
Avatar m tn Hello, I have a "chronic" sore throat (a pharyngitis and also tonsillitis to be accurate with a post nasal drip and tonsilloliths) for more than 2 years now. I have seen many doctors : ENT, immunologist, …. I have absolutely no signs of infection (no lymphadenopathy). I live healthy. I do sports (do not smoke) and I have no health phobia !
Avatar n tn I'm a 23 year old male and I've had a chronic sore throat for over 5 months now. It's driving me out of my mind.. Please help me where my other Doctors have not.. I've been tested for allergies and I've had a few allergies to trees indiginous to my location. But upon use of Clarinex, Allegra, Zyrtec, etc. I received no relief. I had a Barium swallow which showed reflux.. I was treated with 40 mg Nexium, twice a day. This did not help.
Avatar m tn My dr Rxed me Zithro and my cold passed. Now, for the last week, I have had a sever sore throat. Is this some type of after effect? No puss or anythng like that at the back, just really read and sore with swollen glands.
195647 tn?1198854134 I used to have sore throats constantly and a few weeks ago had patches on my tonsils which went away with anitbiotics. Well my husband has had a sore throat for 2 weeks now. Today my throat became very sore, I looked at it.. It is very red, with a blister on my uvula i have about 6 or 7 small white dots around my tonsils and in my throat and a few red spots. I am a very paranoid person. I have never had white spots around my tonsils, always on them. Now I have none on my tonsils but near them.
Avatar f tn My doctor tells me it cannot be chlamydia as it cannot survive well in the throat? But still my throat is sore. Should I get a throat swab for chlamydia? How likely is it to be that?
Avatar n tn However, on the day of my departure I did experience initial symptoms of a sore throat which probably due to being on a couple of long flights got quite bad over the next two days including possibly a bit of fever on one day. Treatment with lots of Ibuprofen as an anti-inflammatory agent as well as antiseptic spray for the pain got rid of that again within two days.
Avatar n tn also--i don't feel that bad--no fever--slight sore throat--that is all--I hate to take anything!!!
3180166 tn?1344485413 It sounds like an inner ear problem in addition to sore throat and usually when you ears are infected it can throw your balance off and sometimes make you naseated. Has anyone checked your ears?
Avatar n tn Then all of a sudden I got a sore throat. Went to the doctor, was prescribed zithromax. My acid reflux and gastritis worsened. I have stopped the zithromax for a week, but have continued vitamins and supplements to no avail. What should I do?
Avatar n tn He said my throat was infected (meanwhile i wasn't complaining about my throat, i was there for coughing)and I had fluid in my ears. He prescribed Augmentin and a week and a half later I had a fever and Bronchitis. I called my primary physician and was switched to Zithromax. I was in the hospital for my bronchitis on wednesday..2 days ago while still on Zithromax, the next day I woke up with the left side of my throat swollen worse than it has ever been.
Avatar n tn A month ago i had sore throat with a low-graded fever, around 99F, then i had ear ache in the left ear. I was treated first with zithromax, my sore throat was gone, but i still had ear ache and hearing loss. then i was treated with amoxicilin for about a week, the earache is gone, but hearing loss is still here. at the end of the treatment, i started to feel nausea for about five days, and during the time i had trouble breathing, and felt my heartbeat increased occasionally.
Avatar f tn Hi everyone. For the past two months I've been having severe throat pain (on and off) It hurts when I swallow and when I speak. At times it hurts so much I can't sleep. I have to be sipping ice cold water just to try to deal with the pain. My doctor on a few ocasions has told me that I have no infection but prescribes zithromax and Guiatuss AC syrup on two ocasions during the two month period.
Avatar n tn However, my chest is so sore--the sternum and both sides of my chest - especially under my breasts are sore to touch and even with deep breaths. I have been experiencing insomnia for some nights, which I though were related to the Prevacid (before I started the Zithromax). So I stopped the Prevacid and I am waiting for another option. Last night I woke up in a with a racing heart and chills..... throughout these few weeks I have been running on and off a low-grade fever.
Avatar m tn anyways then a week later i caught some sore throat virus from my roomate and that sucked. nursed it back to health with dayquil tea and gargling salt water. then the weekend came 4th of july weekend and i partied the weekend away weith my friends who were back in town. i smoke marijuana 3 times that weekend and my sore throat came back that monday.
195647 tn?1198854134 Two days ago my throat felt like I had something stuck to it and sore. When I got home my throat was very red and had about 6 white dots on it with red spots up into the posterior roof of my mouth. There are no puss spots on my tonsils, just around them. My throat isnt incredibly sore and the lymphnodes in my neck are just slightly swollen. I later ate and 3 of them disappeared with no sign of being there but a few still linger.
Avatar m tn I see, thank you for replying to my post. The sore throat and phlegm im assuming are because i am sick at the moment. What i am worried about are the bumps that have been on the back of my throat for some time now. What you have told me seems very reassuring. She did not bother to take a culture for strep or herpes. She just prescribed the zithromax antibiotics and famvir and told me if the famvir doesn't help then she will recommend a throat specialist for them to take a look at.
Avatar n tn I've been sick now for 8 weeks.First I had a sore tongue,on each side.then my ears started hurting also had some awful dizzy episodes when seated just moving head slightly, up and down.not frank vertigo felt weird, as though on a boat.Went to doc, she said my eardrums were retracted but no fluid.had a low white blood count and high lymphs so thought viral infection. but still sick..my head will feel burning, like my brain is "hot", yet have little or no fever.
Avatar m tn Hi I would like to understand from other users, what is a normal response time for a strep sore throat to heal. Had a progressively worsening sore throat for 3 days, rapid test positive for strep. Started Zithromax 500mg per day for 5 days due to penicillin allergy. Now starting my 3rd day of treatment with no change in pain status. Have gargled every few hours with salt or apple cider vinegar; no relief. Should I become worried?
Avatar n tn 5)Since the start of September I have had constant allergy or sinus drainage down my throat and my throat is sore. On October 4th (23 days after incident), I went to the doctor and described my symptoms including all the pains. My doctor took some blood and ran some test including an HIV test. All test were normal. 6)On October 9th, I went to Urgent Care with a sore throat and swelling in the neck and throat. My throat was sore, red, and has some white spots all over it.
