    Was prescribed azithromycin a few days ago in the form of the 5-day Zpack. I took my first dose 36 hours ago and have been experiencing persistent stomach cramping and watery stool. I am not planning on continuing the treatment as the side effects are far more painful than the original symptoms, and also because other posters have mentioned that these painful side effects can continue for days aft ...

    Was out with strep a while back and I am allergic to amoxicillin, so I usually get screwed when it comes to antibiotics. Wen't to see the doc, he prescribed me this. Had to take one daily for 5 days, by day two I was already feeling 10000 times better than I was the previous week. 10/10 would take if I came down with strep again. I also didn't have a problem with any side effects.

He prescribed a Z-pak for me and I was skeptical. I have IBS and have had gastric bypass surgery, so antibiotics are hit or miss with me. Every single antibiotic I have taken for either UTI, tonsillitis or a tooth infection I have gotten st ... Show Full Comment
