I already have anxiety problems I have very bad panic attacks. I was wondering if taking the Z pak if it would cause my anxiety ( panic attacks) to start up again?
Zithromax - While taking the Z pak does it cause bad anxiety?

Hi Sam, the first time I took Zithromax, I had terrible panic attacks. But now that I know it causes them, I am prepared when I take it, and I try to make sure I am prepared mentally before I take it. They won't last long though, and if you need the Zithromax to get over an infection, go for it, and be strong. You can do it! StarGlitter
