Customer Question
Hello there! I just...

Hello there! I just took only one pill of azthromycin and experienced bad side effects! I stopped and refused to take five more pills. I am 64 and I am on high blood medications, antidepressant and thyroid medication. Now on the third day I am experiencing muscle weakness. How long with this medication effect to go away?

Doctor's Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?

I am allergic to sulfa. I am taking two different blood pressure medications, lexapro with Xanax for my anxiety. I am also allergic to statins

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

All I want to know if I will be OK after stopping azt. And I will regain my muscle strength back .... like I did with statins and stoping by doctor ten my muscle was back to normal

Severe dizziness, almost fainted, stomach upper and lower part in pain on the first day I took one pill. Now I am better but still some muscle weakness.

What Customers are Saying:

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

ClaudiaAlbuquerque, NM

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
