My dentist prescribed 1500 mgs daily to clear up an abcessed tooth so it could be pulled. My only problems were that it has made me very tired, but it did reduce the swelling in the abcessed tooth; and also gave me a headache each day.

I get frequent bacterial sinus infections and bacterial bronchitis as secondary infections from allergies or colds (Note: if this drug did not work for you it's probably because you had the viral form and no antibiotic will help with a virus. Sometimes doctors prescribe an antibiotic JUST IN CASE it is bacterial). This is the only antibiotic that consistently works for me and my doctor and I hav ...

My 17 year old son was put on azithromycin for cold symptoms and developed Steven Johnson Syndrome, which he developed a rash all over his body, lips were swollen, and sores in the mouth. What a horrible reaction from this medicine. My son had to stay in the hospital for a whole week. They say the side effects are rare but Im hearing more eposides of side effects!

Doctor prescribed me 1 250mg tablet a day for 5 days. It was a load of crap and did not do anything to help with my sinus infection or my Upper Respitory Infection.

Azithromycin 250mg. was given to me for Acute Bronchitis along with Prednisone. The 1st round of medicine was in early Oct. 2012. After taking the antibiotic for 2 days I got painful sores inside my mouth, on lips, cheeks and tongue. It did not cure the Bronchitis so 3 weeks later my Dr. put me on it again. The same thing happened with the sores in my mouth so I am sure it is the Azithromycin 250m ...

My glans are very swollen and and so is my tongue. This happens to me once maybe every month or so. Today I went to the ER and they said that I had a bacteria infection in my throat. They gave me steroids and also put me on Azithromyicn tablets. I am concerned because I take Geodon also. I always have such bad reactions to drugs. If anyone knows about these two can you please write me back. My hea ...
