I was satisfied that it cured the infection, but within a month of taking the medicine I suffered what is considered an allergic reaction to it that has caused me to suffer from "sebaceous skin disease" and "adult acne", none of which has been a problem before. It has cost me nearly a thousand dollars in curing and nearly a year later I'm still not clear of the problem, though still working with a dermatologist.

I don't want anyone to go thru what I went thru, PLEASE READ: worked great for killing infection, but can cause nausea lasting WEEKS afterward due to system upset which is common for many antibiotics, but seemed more common with this one for me. I HIGHLY recommend stocking up on probiotics (such as BD Lactinex) and taking constantly during and after antibiotic treatment. It is worth the $30 in probiotics for how the $5 antibiotic will make u feel after it has killed off your bad and good bacteria in your body. i would also recommend getting a prescription of phenergen (worked great for me) or zofran (newer but didnt help me) for some nausea u may still feel even while on probiotics while getting thru side effects duration. i ended up in the ER on intraveneous fluids the first time i took azithromycin. the 2nd time on probiotics i got thru it, but still wasn't pleasing - i may try other antibiotics in the future.

After a month of coughing and difficulty breathing, I was able to get to the doctor who prescribed this for what she called an upper respitory infection. Being diabetic, infections of any kind can lead to death so treating well was imperative. This was a new drug for me and I found it fabulous. After five days I no longer cough and have no side effects so far. Unlike oter antibacterial drugs which have given me vaginal infections and other things, this has not done so. I fully recommend this drug.

Bad stomach cramps / diarrhea / nausea / dizziness, this did not react well with me at all. I feel worse with all the side effects than I did with no med's.

After having chronic sinus infections, I've found that using a Z-pack plus prednisone is the only effective "cure". I've never had any of the side effects that other reviewers have experienced.

After suffering with Bronchitis for a week, I was prescribed a Z-Pack. Within 24 hours, I started to feel better. Fever dropped and congestion began to break up. It took two weeks before I was feeling well, but I credit this antibiotic with knocking it out of me. I had a touch of the "runs", but so what. I'm allergic to Penicillin and erythromycin just doesn't do it for me anymore. Zithromax worked great.
