I have a depressed immune system so anything I catch often turns into a major event. Fortunately this doesn't happen but maybe twice a year.

This stuff is a miracle drug for me, a set of magic pills.

It has been about a week and a half since I finished taking this medication; I have been experiencing stomach/abdominal pain as well as chills which started yesterday morning. It was kind of sudden onset and has really been a discomfort. This was my first time ever using Zithromax.

Comment:
My husband took this medication for tick fever. The tick fever is back. But the main thing is the severe left arm and chest pain he has had since he took it. I'm not sure at this point what will happen or fix the problem, but I never want him taking this medicine again. He is in constant pain.
