I have low heart beat at around 60,I am 54 years old.My doctor prescribed Zithromax 250mg ,4 tablets in one go.
Hello
the zithromax is not for the low heart rate

Do you have an infection?

Cough?

Other?

By the way your heart rate is still within normal

Yes I feel a burning when I urinate,and also with ejaculation.The question was if the Zithromax affects the heart beat.
OK
No it should be OK

It does not typically cause a low heart rate.

It has caused rhythm problems.

So, if this is very low for you, there might be a problem, but that is unlikely without symptoms.

To be safe, call your doctor.
And, if he /she agrees, have an EKG today.

OK. If you have further questions or details, use reply to expert.
Otherwise please choose a positive rating . But, still come back if you need to…think of something later, etc. Bonuses are appreciated.

So is the medicine good for my condition
It is OK yes, fairly wide coverage.

However, it is not always a typical antibiotic for covering all UTI bugs with a single dose in a male.
Unless your doctor had a test that showed him the bug you have.

If this does not clear it up, you need a urine culture, and sensitivity, which will show the best antibiotic.

Here is a list of indications here

As you can see, UTI is not a main indication.
