For Chlamydia Infection: I've taken one pill of 250mg so far and I've had the feeling of throwing up, as well as my boyfriend. I ate a bit before and after and still had that feeling. So far, it's been working due to no discharge and smell that I usually had. I also don't have cramps nor burning while urinating.

For Sinusitis: Did great job of treating a sinus infection, where I had pounding headaches all day for 48 hours prior to use. By day 2, I was significantly better. One issue is that two pills on day 1 did wipe out bacteria in the gut. I wish pharmacist gave me a heads up. In hindsight, I would have spaced first 2 pills out by at least 12 hours. Took one pill at 4pm and another at 8pm. By day 2 was fine, but I did need a probiotic and immodium to get through the first night.

Azithromycin Dose Pack (azithromycin) for Bronchitis: I was prescribed and took the Azithromycin pack (Z Pack) when I came down with an acute case of Bronchitis. It was the traditional 2 pills at the first dose, and then 1 pill each following day. I started to feel a noticeable improvement by day 3, and was nearly completely better 7-8 days later. The medicine definitely worked for me, however, the side effects were strongly unpleasant. I had severe stomach pains, along with diarrhea, even when I did take the pills with food. Since the pills work for 10 days, i had the side effects for that long too. Overall though, I happy I took the Z pack and it helped cure me quickly.

For Chlamydia Infection: I had the infection twice. After taking I get really bad stomach pains. My advice... take with crackers and take right before you go to bed. This helps you deal with the pain.

For Chlamydia Infection: I took 4-250mg during 1 meal. My doctor said that this dose was enough for me to clear the infection. I am 5'3, 170lbs. To avoid stomach pain, vomiting or nausea, she suggested that I take 2 bites of my meal, take a pill.....2 more bites, take a pill and so forth. It worked well!

For Chlamydia Infection: Took this medication around 8:30pm on an empty stomach, as I was not advised otherwise. Big mistake. Had the worst stomach pains followed by extreme diarrhea that lasted until approx. 12:30am. Managed to fall asleep and am feeling much better! Just gotta tough it out!

For Chlamydia Infection: I took this before going to bed but wasn't able to sleep in time before the pain and diarrhea set in and rushed to the toilet a good 5 times now. The pain I'm experienceing is not the worst but this is the worst diarrhea I've ever had (good colon cleansing at least.) The best thing you can do is eat a lot before you take this and take a probiotic after you are finished with these symptoms and eat some natural yogurts as well. This medicine will kill both the bad and the good bacteria in you that helps with your digestion and the probiotics will replace the good ones. I believe the product worked cause there is no more burning and I'm waiting on the results from the last visit.

Azithromycin Dose Pack (azithromycin) for Sinusitis: Sinusitis was so bad that my teeth even hurt. Now on day 2 of azithromycin, pain about 80% resolved. Absolutely no side effects. Have taken azithromycin in past for sinusitis and consistently note resolution prior to completion of 5 day pack.

For Chlamydia Infection: As prescribed, I took 4 250mg pills last night in a single dose. After reading the other reviews I was prepared to be immobile the rest of the night and maybe today, I always get the worst side effects. To my surprise, I had no intestinal side effects! I know it could be a delayed thing but its been almost 24 hours and I feel fine. My throat did get swollen, but that's because I'm allergic to most antibiotics...and it wasn't bad enough to have to go to the ER. Guess everyone is different.

For Bacterial Infection: I rarely take antibiotics. I got a serious strep throat and I knew I just HAD to go to a doctor. I started to feel markedly better within 2 hours of taking the first pill. Within the first 8 hours I think I was totally cured. Continued to take the whole course as prescribed though.

For Chlamydia Infection: 7 months pregnant. Found out I had this and took 3 pills after a large dinner. I've been to the bathroom 3 times with diarrhea but no other side effect. I've read a lot about no harm to the baby.

For Otitis Media: Yes, it got rid of my ear infection after the generic was prescribed at a CVS Minute Clinic. HOWEVER (BIG however), I ended up getting strep. My GP said that the generic does not have as long a 1/2 life as the brand name. So, the 5-day dose (which is supposed to stay in your system for up to 10 days) does not last long enough. As a result, you can either end up with the original infection coming back, or make yourself susceptible to a second infection. So now I had to go on Cipro for 10 days to get rid of the strep! This is the kind of thing that produces super bugs--thank you, insurance cos., corner-cutting pharma cos. and especially the FDA for approving substandard generics!

Zithromax (azithromycin) for Bronchitis: This stuff starts working on Day One. Within a couple hours of taking it, I already feel like the congestion has halted and just needs to clear up. Make sure to take the whole pack, but all three times I've ever had bronchitis sneak in during a cold, Zithromax knocks it right out. No side effects for me.

For Pneumonia: Woke on a Monday, with a cough & shortness of breath. Got worse through the week. Went to a Urgent Care & after being tested for the Flu, they agreed with me that I had Pneumonia. 3rd time I have had it in 15 years (I'm lucky like that). They gave me a shot & put me on 250 mg for 5 days. On day 4 still out of work, with coughing & shortness of breath. Meds, tore up my stomach & caused pain towards the right side. Eat some yogurt before taking, helps some. Either I worse then I thought or it's taken this med longer then I expected to get me back on my feet. Also caused caused some headaches. Good luck to others taking & hope it helps you to feel better.

For Chlamydia Infection: Just took the two pills today. I got the infection from a cheating ex. But 10 mins after taking the pills I was blind sided by the side effects. Stomach pain was the worst I've ever felt, hot flashes, the feeling of having to throw up, and nausea. I was able to get to sleep, but as soon as I got up I had a stool of watery diarrhea. The medication seems to have helped. No burning during urination now. Hopefully, everything is good and cleared.
