I've had pvc's for almost 4 months now. The ER prescribed Azithromycin 500mg tablets (5) for a respiratory infection knowing I have pvc's but the information says not to take if you have arrythmias. Is it safe to take with pvc's?
Taking azithromycin in the presence of an arrhythmia may increase your risk of a heart problem. Talk again with your doctor before taking azithromycin. Your doctor may feel that the benefit of taking the medicine outweighs any risk. See:https://www.drugs.com/cdi/azithromycin-tablets.html
