What is zithromax?
I have been taking it for 3 days for supposivly for congestion in my chest, also taking a cough medicine he gave me, but still feel very congested
Asked by Celine Wombles 6 months ago.
Zithromax is an antibiotic, but if it's not clearing up your chest, it could be one of two things: 1. Your congestion is due to a virus, and antibiotics only help with bacterial infections. 2. Your infection is coming from a bacteria that is not susceptible to zithromax (in other words, zithromax won't kill it). If you still aren't feeling well in a few days, see your doctor, who can try a different med. Answered by Jonelle Raja 6 months ago.
Zithromax is a Macrolide Antibiotic, it's used for infections caused by susceptible bacteria (eg. bronchitis, sinusitis, throat infection) , genital or eye chlamydia infections. The common side affects are- Nausea, diarrhoea, belly pains, and the Unusual are- Vomiting, palpitations, dizziness, vaginal thrush, rash, headache. It was introduced in 1995 to treat difficult infections. Regards, Starlet.. Answered by Kristyn Longino 6 months ago.
zithromax is azithromycin, an antibiotic. It may take a few more days for you to notice a difference, but keep taking them! Azithro is one of the few antibiotics that i'm not allergic to and it seems to work for just about everything. Answered by Carissa Voran 6 months ago.

What are my chances of developing an allergic reaction? What is the worse that can happen? And is there anything else I should know about it? (I researched it but I can't find too much info.) Thanks =) Answered by Alta Kersting 6 months ago.
I took Zithromax for my acne for 11 months. I took it once a day every day. My dermatologist this week took me off of the azithromycin. At times the worst of the symptoms was a VERY upset stomach. This occurred once a month or less. My acne has cleared but I am also taking a drug called Spironolactone, which helps the hormones. I have been taking Spironolactone for a year and six months now. I feel confident saying that these two drugs combined worked great for me. It was worth taking both to clear my skin. However I am very relived to be off of the Zithromax, if no other reason but not having to remember to take the med. I also researched the drug and could not find too much info either. I would talk with your dermatologist about your concerns and if it is not working than be honest. Before I was prescribed the Zithromax, I had an other prescription that made me sick. I could not eat and was very nausea. I talked to my doctor and she admitted that what she had prescribed doesn't normally affect people, so at that point she knew I was sensitive to medicine. The truth will be known in a month or so to see if the acne is gone now that I am off the Zithromax. Also I changed my cleansing and moisturizing routine in the morning and evening. Discussing with my dermatologist what type of products would be good for me. Good luck to you and hope you find what works best for your skin and body. Answered by Enriqueta Shumay 6 months ago.
Azithromycin For Acne Answered by Manda Kehrer 6 months ago.
Dry and/or greasy skin due to poor oil composition of the skin. Thick greasy oils clog pores, lack of oil leads to dryness and irritation. You need thin oils to moisturize while dissolving and clearing gunk in your poors. Try fish oil or seafood. 2 tsp fish oil a day or 4 servings of seafood a week. Stick it out for at least 2 months; it will take a long time to replace all your oil. Any effect after 1-2 days is temporary or random; so even if it makes you break out a little at first, you haven't given it a full try yet. In the short term you can wash and moisturize well, but that will only go so far. Plus excessive washing can be drying and excessive moisturizing can be clogging. Use a small amount of a light moisturizer, made with oil not jelly or grease. Often that means soybean oil or mineral oil. Mineral oil means mined from the ground. So soybean oil is usually better, though mineral oil won't cause too much harm. Clean with soap and water, not a harsh acne cleanser. Even then they only work so well. So you really need the seafood. Antibiotics aren't really good for bacteria long term, they'll come back in force after. Short term they may help. After you get off them find some kefir with acidophilus listed first or 2nd to replace the friendly bacteria they destroyed. Studies show less illness when you have these bacteria, even outside the stomach in places such as the lungs and elsewhere. You want friendly bacteria to fill the void when the antibiotics stop, not harmful ones. In the short term you might also try 100,000+ iu retinol vitamin A (a megadose, and too much for normal use) or one of the acne drugs that is similar to retinol vitamin A. It's some minor harm to your organs, but it helps against bacteria on your skin. At least it doesn't have the other long term drawbacks to your skin that antibiotics and many scrubs do.

How does zithromax work?
How does it kill bacteria? My guess is that it stops it from growing? But how does it do that? I think it takes 7days to kill everything? How does it have the fighting power do last that long in the body?
Asked by Lanell Limbert 6 months ago.
Zithromax is an macrolide antibiotic related to erythromycin.It fights bacteria in the body. Zithromax is used to treat many different types of infections caused by bacteria, such as respiratory infections, skin infections, ear infections, and sexually transmitted diseases. In children, it is used to treat middle ear infection, pneumonia, tonsillitis, and strep throat. Zithromax may also be used for other purposes not listed in this medication guide.

I am allergic to penicillan, will zithromax be okay to take?
Asked by Charlott Lahaye 6 months ago.
Zithromax is in the macrolide family. This will be ok to take if you have a penicillin allergy. You need to be sure that when you go to your Doctor they know all of your allergies. Then you also need to tell you pharmacy. This is a double check for your saftey. If you are still concerned about an allergic reaction watch for a sign of a rash. If this happens call your doctoro or pharmacist. Answered by Aja Shollenberger 6 months ago.
Should be. Zithromax is a macrolide antibiotic... penicillins are not. Stay away from antibiotics that end in -illin, like amoxicillin, those are penicillin derivatives. If your allergice reaction is more broad as in you have an allergice reaction to a broad range of medications then I promise nothing with zithromax. But in general, you should be fine. Answered by Jed Kahler 6 months ago.
I'm surprised that you'd be given a prescription without your doctor confirming this sort of information first (this is your medication and not someone else's, right?). When in doubt, ask your pharmacist! It's too risky to go with web advice when there could be a drug allergy lurking. He or she will have the latest info on the topic. Answered by Jutta Kujawski 6 months ago.
Talk to your doctor! I hope you aren't taking an old prescription. Zithromax is used to treat bacterial infections. You need to have your doctor verify if you have a bacterial infection and if you need an antibiotic. You can actually make a possible infection worse if you are taking antibiotics not prescribed to you. Answered by Ben Karhoff 6 months ago.
I am allergic to penicillin and do fine with the zpack, I do believe some people do have problems. Its best to talk to a pharmacist or doctor and discuss how you react to penicillin .

Can i take nyquil with zithromax?
Just started taking zithromax 4-5 hrs ago. Is it safe to take Nyquil with zithromax? I am taking no other medications.
Asked by Arline Hollway 6 months ago.
Zithromax is an antibiotics, so it should be fine to take it with Nyquil. NyQuil should not be taken with medications that contain other antihistamines or cough suppressants. People with certain other diseases, such as diabetes mellitus, glaucoma, asthma, chronic cough, excess mucus production, enlarged prostate, or high blood pressure should consult a physician or pharmacist to ensure that NyQuil will not interact negatively with their disease states. Additionally, concurrent use of NyQuil with monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs) or other drugs containing acetaminophen is contraindicated. Another concern with Nyquil of any formulation is that it contains acetaminophen (also known as Tylenol). It is essential to avoid excessive amounts of acetaminophen as this may cause damage to the liver. Answered by Darrick Jakovac 6 months ago.
You say you've taken Zithromax. Did you take the whole course of 5 days? Otherwise, it's not going to help you if you don't take all the doses. Antibiotics aren't a symptom-alleviating medication like sudafed that just cover up the symptoms. Antibiotics kill bacteria and the whole course of the antibiotics must be taken. Many times if you don't take the whole course, the bacteria become resistant to the antibiotics and you cause more problems in the long run. Answered by Dorethea Wessler 6 months ago.

Answered by Gerardo Letsche 6 months ago.
Zithromax (Azithromycin) is a good 'broad spectrum' antibiotic. As such, it inhibits a large number of bacteria. If you are seeing improvement, and it sounds like you are, then yes, the antibiotic seems to be working. Regaining normal function and seeing the pus leave may take up to 5-7 days. Continue to watch this as you are doing. It seems you are being diligent in monitoring your condition, which is excellent. If you complete the course of treatment and continue to have symptons, your physician may place you on Augmentin instead of repeating the Zithromax. However, some infections do require two courses of treatment, depending on how severe they were when treatment began. Answered by Deidra Esera 6 months ago.
Yes, you're getting better, but it's very important to finish the course of antibiotics otherwise the infection will come back with a vengeance and then may be resistant to the antibiotics. God bless! Answered by Kory Riffee 6 months ago.
Scared to take medicine...I have always been scared of side effects today i was prescribed zithromax?
predinsone...steriod albuteral...inhaler has anyone ever had side effects to these
Asked by Rolf Hallerman 6 months ago.
The zithromax shouoldn't cause any, the prednisone might cause you to be hungry and a little hyper, best to take as prescribed (I am assuming he put you on a medrol dose pack and you take a certain # of pills for 5 days) and the albuteral inhaler tastes terrible and may speed up your heart rate for a minute. With the inhaler if you didn't get a spacer it is important to shake it before you put it in your mouth and aim it high off the tounge if yu can. Make sure you take as deep a breathe as you can and hold it. Wait a few minutes before the second puff if he ordered 2 puffs. Sounds like you've got yourself a bad respiratory infection. Fortunately zithromax clears things up fast! Answered by Laurie Broward 6 months ago.
Sounds like you have bronchitis or some other type of respiratory tract infection. You are pretty sick. The last time I got this group was after I got a bacterial infection following the flu. Zithromax is an antibiotic--it may give you a yeast infection or diarrhea, but you might not get them either. If you do, call the doc and they'll tell you what to do. Prednisone will help reduce inflammation--it's okay to take for a short period of time. The inhaler will make you a little light headed. I'd take the medicine and stay home for a day or two and just rest up. Drink a lot of water. I don't think you'll get well without these in your present condition. Been there, done that. Sick as a dog. Answered by Dena Halcott 6 months ago.
Yes, it works very well. Just make sure you follow all the directions and stay in contact with your physician. I took it for 6 months and never really had any significant problems. Your skin will be very dry, and I have very pale skin so I was pretty red throughout the process. I have no idea if that's normal, but it almost looked like I was blushing a lot of the time. My lips were pretty dry, but not too bad. I don't really ever get chapped lips though, so I'm not sure if that matters at all. I never had too much trouble with dry skin in my nose either, and I never had a nosebleed. I never had achy joints either, but I hear that's a pretty common side effect. I know one other person that took it and they had no problems either - they did have more problems with their lips/nose and dry skin though. All you can do is research it and then do what you're comfortable with. There are risks with anything, just be aware and stay informed about possible side effects so you can recognize them immediately. Answered by Jere Brodzik 6 months ago.
I took Zithromax at one point, had some MILD stomach upset, but was ok after a few days... After taking an antibiotic (once you're done wiht it and feeling better) try eating some yogurt for a couple of days, to build up the normal "flora" (the normal amount of bacteria in your stomach that helps with digestion). Your body is used to it and needs it. Also make sure you take all of the antibiotics prescribed- not just until you feel better. That's how we keep from creating "super bacteria" Hope this helps! Answered by Jospeh Commer 6 months ago.
I sometimes get a headache and increased heartrate with my albuterol inhaler, but that's only if I use it more than I'm supposed to (like at a swim meet, I'll use it like every 2-3 hours instead of 4-6) with Zithromax you might get an upset stomach or diarrhea, since it's an antibiotic and may kill off your normal gut flora... take it with a little bit of food if you get nauseous with your first dose. You really have nothing to worry about with those three drugs though if you take them as directed... there aren't really any major side effects that come with them! Answered by Tran Abrell 6 months ago.
Everyone has had side effects with every single drug on the market. My brother takes four medications where death is a side effect. You have to balance the risks vs. the desired outcome. Consider getting help for anxiety problems if it is preventing you from helping your illness. I can tell you from personal experience that prednisone can have serious side effects in high dosages, and lesser effects (reduced immune system, slow healing) in low dosages. I've had Zythomax in the past; it's an antibiotic that unfortunately didn't work for my problem at the time. Most common side effect is diarrhea which gets better. Answered by Sylvia Harders 6 months ago.
My heart doctor has me take the z-pak (zithromax) the first week of every month, especially in the winter. When I did get the flu (yes, I took the shot) it was a very mild case. Didn't need to be hospitalized. Prednisone is a different fellow. Depending on the amount you take, it can change your entire body. I was on 60mg a day and it nearly destroyed me. My husband took me to the Mayo Clinic and they said the prednisone was killing me and to get off of it. You have to be weaned off and it took nearly a year for me to get back to normal. Albuteral is a good inhaler. No problems there. You should rinse out your mouth after inhaling it though. It caused my friend to have sores in her mouth and throat. She wasn't rinsing. Hope this information was helpful! Answered by Enda Quails 6 months ago.
I am one of those people who CANNOT take z-pak. So, having had a horrible experience with it (and a relative with a similar experience) I say to beware of it. If you begin to have a bad reaction to it, trust your gut (no pun intended) and tell your doctor right away. The reaction can get out of hand and can lead to certain problems that, unfortunately, you would have to live with for the rest of your life. Don't take that chance. To some people it is much too powerful of a drug. I now have an inoperable rectal abcess that negatively affects my daily quality of life. (Well, it can be operated on, but the operation sounds worse than the suffering, and there is no guarantee -- and it usually gets repeated several times ... so, no thanks.)
