  • Adverse effect of azithromycin
    patients immunesystem showed very bad response to azithromycin adminstered as 1000mg per day 3 days and then 1000mg once a week for 6 weeks -

    a previously chronic sinuitis flared up as did a over 30 year old infection in a broken toe -

    dicillin was given for 10 days 3000mg per day / 1000mg 3 times daily - with good effect -

    the patents journal shows evidence of similar occurence a decade ago when taking Klacid uno also of the macrolid family -
    it appears macrolids can have severe adverse effect on some patients immunesystem
  • Muscle weakness while on accutane
    I began taking Accutane end of 2013 and I'm just now finishing up my medication.
    During the first month I noticed my hands swelling up, but I also noticed my knuckles lightened.
    Where I considered my elbows to be ashy, the color lightened up and the skin became smooth. My body retained water and my skin looked like it had a glow.
    My 2nd month it continued, the swelling only became prevalent during my 7 day period.
    My nails, hair, and turnover of my skin increased by month 3+4
    By month 5 my old hyper pigmentation had surfaced and my cystic acne, dissolved.
    I was on depression medication, this is advised against, but I discussed with doctor to do a patient override. I had no issues with depression, or the medication making me feel anymore depressed at all. In fact, I continued on with absolutely no issues. I did notice one negative factor. This was more specific for me. I returned to do dancing again after being away from it in College years ago. My muscle density is already far less, but I pushed through and was able to gain strength. However, during the last few months (3-6) the Accutane did affect me strength.my muscles were fatigued far earlier than before and my strength/core balance felt less sustainable for long periods.
    I have been given a hydroquinoin (sp?) cream @ 4% to help with the melasma/hyper pigmentation, however I may need laser to have my skin tone and complexion return to a more suitable color.
    Overall, I'm happy with my cystic acne being gone. It was worth taking Tis and worked for that purpose.
  • Blighted ovum after accutane
    I took Accutane in my late 20's for almost 6 month's. I already had 3 healthy children with uncomplicated pregnancies. Never a miscarriage or any gynecological issues. Now at 36, I have had 2 blighted ovum's back to back. Not sure if Accutane could have been a contributing factor but something young women should consider before taking this medication.
  • Accutane induced chronic constipation (1 response)
    Took accutane for 5 months in 2010. Have severe constipation since then. Nothing works except massive dose of mag citrate at least once per week. Anyone have same experience & found a treatment that works?
  • Azithromycin side effect skin hyperpigmentation (1 response)
    My 6-year-old daughter took 5-day course azithromycin 3 times in 5 months for sinus infections. Do not recall exactly when hyperpigmentation began appearing all over front of neck, but definitely by the 3rd month after initial dose, with subsequent darkening upon taking two more prescriptions within the 5 months. Disappeared after treating 1x/day for 2 days with aloe vera gel directly from the plant rubbed all over darkened areas; all hyperpigmentation scrubbed off with oatmeal/honey scrub on 3rd day. No recurrence until about 6 months later with minimal to moderate autumn sun exposure, recurrence all over front of neck again, even though never took azithromycin beyond the 3 prescriptions. About two weeks after this started, now entire side of one ankle is hyperpigmented. Very concerned how much more it will spread. Will up aloe vera gel application frequency in hopes to get rid of it. Stay away from this drug! It is definitely too new of a drug to be prescribing for kids!
