When I received the prescription I had a fever of 102, horrible chills, could hardly breathe or think. An hour later after taking my first dose, I forgot I was sick. Of course, the periodic cough reminds me. Day 2 the nausea began, but I didn't credit the drug. Today the nausea is the same, but I feel much better. The nausea is nothing compared to what I was feeling before I started Azyth ... Show Full Comment

Only on the second day but experiencing abdominal cramps and nausea. My symptoms changed overnight after my first dose of the drug. I went from severe flu like symptoms to cold and fever. Also, not able to sleep at all!!!! I think sleep would help me better than the antibiotic.

I gave this to my 9month old son for sinus infection. He was awake for 10 solid hours after the 1st dose and 12 hours from the second. The poor thing was miserable- he was exhausted, but couldn't stop bouncing and jumping around. The dr. insists it's not from the medicine, but when I stopped it, he was able to sleep again. I will NEVER allow them to give this to him again.

I took the first three days worth of doses after having a tooth pulled. Today is day 4 and I am uncontrollably nervous and anxious. The dentist told me to stop taking it and my husband doesn't think there's anything wrong with me. Lots of help from all sides. These are listed as rare side effects, but I can tell you they are extremely disconcerting and I will not use this medication ag ... Show Full Comment
