“I am on day 2 of the 5 day dose pack. Relief from upper respiratory symptoms has been rapid and effective. 48 hrs ago I was having severe coughing fits, sneezing, painful sinus pressure, lethargy, blocked nasal passages, unable to lie down without inducing severe bouts of coughing. 36 hrs ago I took the loading dose, and 12 hrs ago the day 2 dose. My cough is all but gone, I am able to breathe normally, my voice is back nearly to normal, the sinus pressure is gone, and I have stopped taking the decongestant I was using. This afternoon I went out shopping. I have noticed no side effects, others than a mild nausea after the day 1 dose, which may or may not have been from the medicine. This is my second highly positive experience with this medicine.”

“I haven't taken an antibiotic for several years because I haven't had a bacterial infection. Over a month ago I came down with a virus but in retrospect it soon evolved into a secondary sinus infection. I respect the avoidance of antibiotics unless symptoms clearly point to bacterial infections, and I was not running a fever, and what my sinus produced did not look foul enough. However, when this didn't abate after close to 5 weeks, even my internist agreed it might be a rare low-grade bacterial infection and gave the green light to try an antibiotic. I started it the day before yesterday and by last night it was the first time in 4 1/2 weeks I got relief from the non-stop post-nasal glob driving me crazy. It couldn't have been more dramatic.”

“I was prescribed 250mg, 5 day dose pack of Azithromycin for upper respiratory infection. Dosing: 2 tabs 1st day, then 1 per day for 3 days. Took 2 tabs 1st day no problem.. 2nd day, 1 tab in morning before driving to family reunion. Almost immediate intermittent left upper chest painb. No other symptoms of heart attack. Chewed 2 aspirin after lunch - only slight relief. Returned home in evening and found Cardiac symptoms listed on dose pack descriptions. Discontinued taking Azithromycin and had no recurrence of chest pains 3rd day to date. Ten days later I had electrocardiogram down and results were normal.”

“Started this 250mg tabs 5 days ago, finished all today! Began it with a non productive cough! After first dose of (2 tabs), then (1) a day for 4 days. I had fever-like-symptons, tired, severe anxiety and now have finished all. Now I have been coughing up YELLOW phlegm.. Coughing has NEVER stopped!!”

“Dose: azithromycin 500mg four times a day. Prescribed for 7 days. On day 2 now, I feel the medication is working feeling a little better already but all day been with nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea and backpain. I usually don't get any side effects from antibiotics but I'm struggling with this one. If side effects continue in day 3 I'm calling the doctor. Could be the dose is too high who knows. I'm not enjoying this so far.”
