After reviewing the side effects, I'm concerned with the severity of them. I have anxiety to begin with, as well as trouble sleeping. The z pack was discontinued due to severe stomach pains. (This is to treat bronchitis) I am a 24 year old female.
Amd1515 Please take the new antibiotic the doctor had to go to this because the old standard z-pak did not work, Most of the side effects happen when your on these for long term this is used a lot when the standard antibiotic does not work without on going side effects. This is much better than a cronic problem with having bronchitis.Just for the record many of the side effects that it list are really not from this medication its from others in the same family that the drug company has to put in because the drugs are somewhat related. Trust me the doctor has decided this is the one you have to take and don't worry about everything you read.The sooner you start this the sooner you well be well. Good luck and hope you get to feel better..Chuck1957
I would make sure that Dr prescribes prednisone just in case. I took it for 14 days and my stomach seriously hated me about a week after I was off it. Luckily my Dr did prescribe it to me for just in case. The antibiotic does do it's job. I would have only taken it a week but she said it wasn't long enough with as sick as I was. I can't take many antibiotics because I am allergic to most of them.
