Zithromax sinus infection

Common Questions and Answers about Zithromax sinus infection


Avatar n tn I was prescribed Zithromax for a sinus infection. It made me feel quite ill but I finished the course. I asked my Dr for a prescription for Difflucan one as I almost always get yeast infections after antibiotic use. Sure enough about 4 days into taking it i developed vaginal itching but no discharge. I am now 4 days later after finishing the antibiotics and I'm still itching. I took the Difflucan one day ago and haven't really noticed much improvement.
Avatar f tn Your symptoms could be due to a post nasal drip, which can cause a chronic irritation in the throat. This could be due to a sinus infection, a cold or a chronic allergy. It could be sinusitis, if it is accompanied by nasal stuffiness and facial pain or pressure. Post nasal drip could also be due to allergens. These are substances like pollen, dust, animal dander, certain foods, insect venoms and certain medications.
Avatar f tn I have been taking zithromax for a couple days now for a sinus infection. All of a sudden I have had terrible heartburn since I have been on the medication. Could it be from the meds?
Avatar f tn And it's a godsend of a medication lol. I had a double ear infection, double sinus infection, and stage 1 phumonia(sp), and Zithromax had me cleared up and feeling better withen the same night of taking it. I was also worried to take it at first, so I called almost every pharmacy in town and asked about it, and I got the same answer, which is it's safe, and I even called my doc and double checked with him lmao. Zithromax does cross into the placenta, but not as much as other antibiotics.
Avatar f tn Doctor put me on the 5 day Z pac for a sinus infection. Since I have been taking it I've had dizziness and heart palpatations. I really didn't think anything of it because I have been diagnosed with tachycardia. Yesterday I woke up with numbness and tingling in my left arm. I also thought this was because of my tachycardia but it lasted all day. I then was reading about some of the side effects of the z pac which include dizziness, heart palpatations and numbness, tingling.
Avatar f tn I just finished a 5 day z pack that was prescribed for a sinus infection that was giving me severe headaches. My heart started to feel funny and I looked at the insert which said could cause irregular hearbeats. I've taken this medication in the past with no issue. I do not have any cardiac disease but I do smoke, should I just wait for about 5 days to see if once the meds are out of my system I'm ok, or should I go see a doctor or go to the ER?
Avatar n tn After thinking I was fighting a wicked cold for a week (with no improvments in symptoms and feelings) I went to the doctors and low and behold it turns out to be a sinus infection. He said he could see puss (sorry if that's gross) in my sinus area when he looked up my nose with those things docs use, like to look in your ears - anyway I have never had a sinus infection before in my entire life and I have no pain in the sinus area like everyone is telling me is supposed to happen.
Avatar n tn Late fall 4 years in a row sinus infection is back. The strangest thing is the flushing and sweating on my face and head. It seem very much like anxiety. It seems to come in waves with little or no activity involved. Saw ENT yesterday 2 diff antibiotics and a spray. Two shots in each nostril. I am 43 years old very well adjusted and have suffered from depression and anxiety over 10 years ago and it really scares me to think that this particular symptom is unrelated to my infection.
Avatar n tn I completed 2 rounds of Zithromax (sp?) approximately 2 weeks ago due to a sinus infection. I had a pretty considerable amount of couging with the infection, and the cough itself took around a week to really improve. Just within the last week or so, I have noticed a strange feeling in my back. Sometimes it is a dull ache, sometimes just a full feeling. It occurs right over or slightly under my shoulder blades, mostly on the left side.
Avatar f tn 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). I do not have a fever, I do not have tonsils, and I don't really see any "white spots" or signs of strep.
Avatar f tn I'm not a big drinker but we are going to some friends for dinner and I usually have a martini. Also, my sinus infection is still raging so it didn't help that. It did help the bronchitis. Maybe I'm dealing with allergies. I'll ask again..has anyone had any problems with Claritin?
1485281 tn?1287951992 Has anyone had terrible neck pain while having a bad sinus infection? I have had a sinus infection since August that won't go away! I have been on very strong antibiotics and steroids. My neck pain is very bad and stops me from almost doing anything around the house. The pain is at the base of my head on the right side and radiates down to my neck and shoulder and last night down my arm. I have never had pain in my neck that has lasted so long.
Avatar n tn I had just switched allergy medications, from Nasonex to generic Flonase, right at the time my symptoms returned. Could allergies have led to a sinus infection? Can the sinus infection cause dizziness and fatigue? Due to the holiday weekend I haven't been able to call my doctor, but after 3 prior visits he's never suggested sinuses to be a cause.
Avatar f tn After a visit to the pediatrician, the nurse practioner diagnosed him with a sinus infection coming out of the eye. He did not have a fever and did not have a runny nose or even cough. He was treated with amoxicillian until 3/8 where he was back at the pediatricians office because he was not improving. The nurse practioner gave the same diagnosis and changed the medication to augmentin. On 3/15/11 he woke up with a swollen face under his eyes and they were swollen shut and very red.
Avatar m tn Hi, I was dxed with a sinus infection and rxed antibiotic zithromax. I do have superventricular tachycardia which causes my heart to beat fast sometimes due a short circuit. I rarely get these episodes. However I have read that zithromax has caused arrythmias in some though it is rare. My nose pressure and pain in nose and head from sinus infection have gotten worse.
Avatar n tn In other words, yes there is a virus component, but eventually an infection can set into the sinus cavities. Zithromax is a good drug for sinus issues. It is an antibiotic, that is taken for 5 dies. 2 pills the first day, and 1 pill a day the following 4 days. In china, you should be able to buy Zithromax otc without any issues. That said, in my opinion, I would seek medical advice.
Avatar n tn I've been suffering from persistant pressure, tightness in my forehead for several years. This causes physiological & Neurocognitive symptoms that have effected my functioning. I'm in a fog & it effects my thinking. Nothing has helped & the symptoms are perpetual. After a number of neg blood tests, normal brain/thoracic/cervical MRIs, EEG & spinal tap, my Neurologist at an academic hospital sent me to an ENT and an allergist.
Avatar n tn I have been having general fatigue and sinus problems ever since I came down with mononucleosis this summer, almost six months ago. The problems first manifested themselves as persistent headaches and pain/pressure between the eyes, in what was most likely some kind of infection of the ethmoid sinuses.
Avatar m tn One of the causes of maxillary sinusitis is a tooth abscess that has leaked the infection into the maxillary sinus. The teeth may be X-rayed to find this. • Ethmoid sinuses. If infection occurs, you may get puffy eyes and pain between them. The sides of your nose may get tender to the touch, your nose may get stuffy, and you won’t be able to smell so well. You may also get a splitting headache, felt most intensely in the forehead. • Sphenoid sinuses.
Avatar f tn I have been sick for over five weeks and was finally diagnosed with a sinus infection. The doctor said that sinus infections are often stubborn and hard to get rid of with antibiotics so he prescribed 500 mg a day for ten days. That seems like a large dosage and a long time to take it. I'm only basing that on what I've been reading. The pharmacist seemed to think it was a normal amount. Is this a reasonable amount? Is it safe to take it for for ten days?
Avatar f tn I have a sinus infection and called my general practioner and age prescribed me zithromax saying it's the safest if I'm possibly pregnant. But when I researched via google they say there's no studies effectively done to prove harm to fetus, or not. I'm worried since we have been ttc for 3 years. Should I take my chances or not is the question?!?
Avatar n tn First off, being diagnosed with a sinus infection is a 50/50 bet at best. My allergist told me recently that you diagnose a sinus infection by the symptoms, and that there is no real way to tell without getting a sample of the sinus fluid.
Avatar n tn One type of infection that can produce much of what you are describing is a sinus infection. The best way to make the diagnosis is with a CT scan of the sinus, although x-rays are a decent alternative. I would not recommend using antibiotics "blindly". This will not help you to decide which ones to use, what the problem really is, or how long to treat.
Avatar n tn I am 32 weeks pregnant and have an excruciating maxillary sinus infection. I am taking zithromax (antibiotic) and Tylenol Sinus. The pain is radiating from my cheek to my temple and down into my mouth and teeth on the left side. It has me in tears. Is there any form of safe pain releif during the third semester of pregnancy for this problem?
Avatar n tn My PCP has just diagnosed me with Chronic allergic rintitus...? Should I see a specialist, does this sound like a infection of some sort..? Also my PCP has treated me with Zithromax before. and it did'nt really help with the swelling.
882102 tn?1240626011 I just thought I had a summer cough. I went to work in Jakarta for two weeks but picked up a micoplasma infection. This resulted in pneumonia, atrial fibrillation, myocarditis and congestive heart failure. While in Indonesia I self prescribed Zithromax and cured the pneumonia but I didn't appreciate how sick I really was then (and I was working with doctors on their health system who didn't pick up on it either). When I got back to Australia I was admitted into CCU.
