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.

Took it for a sinus infection. It made me sicker than sick, nausea was horrible. I have one more day & I am thinking of skipping it. I smell it on my skin, taste it, horrible!

Comment:
I had taken this medicine previously for a lung infection with no problems. This time I took it for an abscessed tooth. Within a few hours, I had extreme diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, and cold sweats..felt I was going to die..as if I had a very, very bad case of the flu. I am also allergic to penicillin. I did not take another dose of the Azithromycin. Original dose was 250 mg.
