... took the first dose last night due to a possible abscess tooth. Today my sugar reading was quite high 245. Can Azithromycin cause this?
I am diabetic and my dr prescribed azithromycin in case my tooth gets infected while on vacation. I?

No its not the medicine. Its the infection's effect on your body. Infection will raise your blood sugar and for diabetics its often the first sign of infection. I would keep taking it if I were you.
