Zithromax upper respiratory infection

Common Questions and Answers about Zithromax upper respiratory infection


Avatar n tn I have used other drugs in the past for my lungs infections, albeit not as severe as your friends, such as Ceftin (also commonly used for upper respiratory infections.). The doctors at the hospital should get a sputum sample and culture it to see what bacterial strain it is. From there they can decide on the best antibiotic that will work with that particular strain. Some infections like tuberculosis require taking 2 or 3 antibiotics at once in order to kill the infection.
Avatar m tn Ive been to 4 doctors in three weeks, first one was because i felt really crummy after i got home from work on a monday, so the next day i went to see a doctor and was diagnosed with bronchitis (which turns out it wasnt) but i was prescribed Zithromax, which helped during the 5 doses that it was, then that saturday night my pain was so bad, i went to the ER and was officially diagnosed with an upper respiratory infection.
Avatar m tn She presented with mild fever, virus-like symptoms (sore throat, diffuse upper respiratory congestion) but that severe headache seems to be the "tell". Why do we all have to suffer so much before learning how common Mycoplasma infection is? Our kids' symptoms are all similar!
Avatar m tn Then recently I had a respiratory infection with small walking pneumonia and took zithromax but went on a golfing trip while on Zithromax ( i feeling fine expcept for mild cough and wheezing and no fever) Golfed for 5 days in a row. On the 4th day had some pain in the right elbow and forearm.
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.
242516 tn?1368227505 The flu has passed epidemic rates in much of the country, and if you don't have a cold, I'm sure you have a friend who has the sniffles, fever, chills, aches and pains of a viral upper respiratory infection. This is different from a bacterial infection such as sinusitis, bronchitis, or pneumonia. A viral infection doesn't improve with antibiotics as these infections do. A virus hijacks your own body's healthy cells and uses it to reproduce and spread.
Avatar n tn I've had a recurring upper-respiratory infection that was not going away despite two rounds of Zithromax and 14 days of Levaquin. Well, it is mostly in my nose and it began getting worse and worse and painful, swollen and I had constant bloody drainage etc. So when I saw my ENT, they prescribed a nasal wash consisting of "Mupirocin 2% OI/Sodium Chloride. I see my ENT in one month. until then, I have two questions. 1.
Avatar f tn Hi. I have a three year old who came down with a upper respiratory illness, probably viral, but not influenza. Even though it was mild at first, his doc prescribed Zithromax. Three days into Zithromax, he developed a mild pneumonia in his left lung, with a high fever. The ER doc replaced Zithromax with Biaxin. He showed improvement after just 1 dose thankfully. Now I seem to have gotten his cold/virus. I don't feel that bad (at least not yet).
Avatar n tn Actually it sounds more like you have an upper respiratory infection going on.
Avatar n tn The Zithromax will help prevent and fight off pneumonia and other respiratory infections. Many people who have H1N1 also develop upper respiratory infections as well. Which is probably why your doctor prescribed it.
Avatar n tn p. Hope you begin to feel better soon. As for your infection and being on Zithromax (azithromycin), that is certainly one of the drugs of choice for upper respiratory infections like sinusitis and also lower respiratory tract infections like bronchitis. Bronchitis can develop in almost anyone who is susceptible to an infection. The lungs are a dark, warm, moist environment. This is what bacteria like.
1901977 tn?1333995326 Been feeling like something was coming on for days now, but woke up early this morning with a definitely upper respiratory infection-type thing, including a deep chest cough and a lot of congestion in my chest. I just started my 12th week so I'm not comfortable taking antibiotics or most of the normal over-the-counter meds I use to treat these normally. Any magic solutions from those of you who have been through this before?
Avatar m tn But it might be helpful to have a Bartonella test performed on your cat's blood. Bartonella can cause gingivitis and upper respiratory infections and requires the antibiotic Zithromax for resolution. Do take your vet's advice about rechecking your cat's WBC's in a couple of weeks.
524272 tn?1212318201 I've recently had an upper respiratory infection and my doc immediately gave me a Z-Pack (azythromycin) and it's helping. I still have coughing just not NEARLY as bad as I did. I spent many nights awake becuase of either my sinuses being so friggin clogged I couldn't breath or I was coughing myself silly. My insides hurt like crazy and I've peed myself so bad I got into the habit of just wearing a heavy flow pad to bed. Now that I've done the Z-pack I feel better...
Avatar n tn On 1/31, caught upper respiratory from all of family (coughing/aches/fever). Family recovering w/some coughing and blowing, but 12 yr old continues w/dry, hacking cough with absolutely no drainage, no vomiting, no fever. Coughs every 3-5 seconds except when sleeping. Pertussis ruled out. Medicines tried with no effect have been Amoxicillan, Robitussin DM, Mytussin AC, Zithromax.
Avatar n tn The prednisolone and vitamin E would be for the auto-immune part of the disease and the Zithromax should cover the secondary bacterial infection. Zithromax is excellent for upper respiratory infections and it also is effective against Bartonella. I would continue with the Lysine for a possible Herpes infection just in case. It is just an amino acid so there is absolutely no contraindications.
Avatar n tn I'm trying to decipher the finds from a CT Scan done for a nodule on my thyroid. Symptoms include a viral infection lasting 3 weeks, a course of Zithromax, Albuterol inahler, Nebs, Robitussin w/Codeine, Prilosec, Claritin and a bed wedge. No relief. Choking episodes at night, hoarse voice, loss of voice and breath if yawning. Blood work revealed low Vit D and Calcium levels, told to up vit D and Calcium intake. Fibro meds include Voltarin, Flexeril, Celexa and HCTZ for BP.
Avatar n tn Coincidentally, I think, within a day or two of removal, I began having ear pain, then sinus pain, congestion, and infection, now added to that is a severe upper respiratory infection. I am running fevers, feel like I have fluid (popping, congestion, pain even to the touch) in my ears and lungs, headache, severe coughing and so forth with an extreme amount of mucus (mostly yellowish).
Avatar m tn Next day - Pink eye in one eye 4 days - Pink eye both eyes 7 days - 2 Canker sores on soft palate 9 days - Pink eye and canker sores heal 10 days - swollen armpits 14 days - Diagnosed Upper Respiratory Infection 4-6 weeks - Constant thrush 6 weeks - HIV negative 3 months - Diagnosed mild pneumonia treated with zithromax developed small bumpy rash on forearms and trunk 3 months - Tested HSV1 (+), HSV2, HIV, Gono, Syph, Chlymadia, LGV all neg.
Avatar n tn If a virus were the cause none of the antibiotics your mom took would be effective in getting rid of the infection. If bacteria were the cause then the antibiotics would have gotten rid of the infection. After the cold is gone, it is possible for the inflammation to linger. This inflammation can last for several weeks. Sometimes this inflammation may linger for 3 to 6 months. Eventually the inflammation will go away, and then the coughing will stop.
Avatar m tn there's plenty of infections (NOT STD RELATED) that you could have caught. I want to tell you a story I have a cold right now (upper respiratory infection). And if i go to the doctor and demand tests that you describe, they MIGHT be a little high. But as your doctor decribed they are normal. You said, "With all due respect, the doc said the results are normal" Well then respect him. Rest and get better. You really didn't have a risk for STDs.
Avatar n tn coughing, sore throat, some sinus congestion, below normal fever (except for day of visit when it went to 99.1F). Cough in mornings was slightly productive, just watery clear fluid-sinus crud is also clear. O2 saturation was 100%. Doc diagnosed bronchitis, put me on zithromax, allegra D and gave me vicotuss. He said my lungs were clear.
Avatar n tn I suspect that I have a low grade upper respiratory infection, and plan to have a culture run on the phelgm, hoping to find a specific antibiotic. And, finally, I find myself feeling exhausted much of the time. Should I see an ENT or Allergy Specialist or what?
Avatar f tn The important question is why an otherwise apparently healthy woman should suddenly start having recurrent upper and lower respiratory tract infections. Unless you have been aspirating food, drinks or gastric/stomach contents due to reflux, this series of events suggests the possibility of an acquired immunodeficiency state, the most likely of which would be, common variable immunodeficiency (CVID). This is not a rare condition and it is treatable.
645800 tn?1466864555 Yes...this is for UTI as well as respiratory infection, middle ear infections, and others. Brand names of this drug are Bactrim and Septra hope you feel better soon.
Avatar m tn My guess is you kissed as well as had oral sex with your partner 3 weeks ago, and you acquired both adenoviral NGU and a very typical upper respiratory adenovirus infection at that time. This explains why your gonorrhea and chlamydia tests were negative, and why ciprofloxacin hasn't made any difference. Like all viruses, adenovirus is not affected by antibiotics. Your ophthalmologist is correct that your infection will clear up on its own, at all involved sites.
Avatar m tn I was then getting a lot of allergies and post nasal and was then coughing. Doctor prescribed Prednisone,Zithromax, Acyclovir [for cold sores] and Clindamycin cap 300 mg for sinus infection. Just lately I got acid reflux.... hard to swallow... even when I did it was bad... slight burning to severe burning feeling on the left hand side of my mid upper chest area. I went back again to see the doctor who told me the coughing, wheezing [which now both had stopped...
Avatar n tn On that day I took him in and we were told we had a upper resp virus. She put him on Omnicef. During this antibiotic treatment he started coughing uncontrolably. WE were given Panmist DM. After two and a half weeks of still coughing I took him in again and he had wheezing and still uncontrolable cough. She put him on Cefzil, Orapred and Albuterol. Just finished antibiotic 11-1 and took him back 11-2 b/c coughing still hasn't improved. Now he's on Orapred, Zithromax and Xopenex in a nebulizer.
