Last Wed I was RX a ZPack. I got my RX at 8:30 that night

Customer Question

Last Wed I was RX a ZPack for bronchitis. I got my RX at 8:30 that night and was unable to take any that day. The next day, I got si24 hr stomach bug. I started my Zpack with the 2 pills together of the 6 on Friday with a good meal. I have been nausea ever sense. I saw online that maybe it was killing my good bacteria in my tummy so I started eating Activia yogurt but no change. Do I need to go back to the dr or is this just a normal side effect?

This is Dr. David

azithromycin can often cause nausea.

you can use ginger tea and flat ginger ale and saltine crackers to help fight the nausea.

I'm glad you starting the activa yogurt

you should also be taking a probiotic daily to prevent diarrhea from the antibiotic.

make sure you finish the course of the zpack

hopefully your nausea will get better

if your nausea worsens, do see your doctor. they have stronger prescription medications for nausea.
