Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • If azithromycin is taken while on your menstrual cycle, will the flow increase
    I took the medication while on my period, and I've noticed my cycle flow to be heavy and extended
  • Can meclizine cause insomnia once and sleepiness the next time
    I took Meclizine one night (as advised by pharmacist; she said it causes drowsiness), after experiencing my first attack of vertigo. It kept me awake almost all night. A couple weeks later, as I was getting ready for a special school event for my daughter, I thought another vertigo attack was coming on. Since the Meclizine didn't make me sleepy the first time but instead had the opposite effect, I thought it would be ok to take it (this was an evening event with a meal). After eating, I began to get very sleepy and my face almost fell in my plate.
  • Alprazolam & amoxicillin
    Have Diverticulitis from having Diverticulosis. Have had high blood pressure for
    about 4 years and it is controlled with the Norvasc & Clonidine. Enlarged prostate is controlled with Flomax & Avodart. Meclizine is for vertigo, take 2 25mg per day, 1 Am & 1 PM. Take 1 Norvasc AM & 1 Flomax PM.
  • Why would doctor prescribe meclizine when otc med available? stronger?
    Gastric bypass. After years found should not be prescribed extended release medications-- they do not work because stomach (duodenum) releases enzymes and acids to release XR. Suffer from GAD, MAD, PTSD, ADHD, Insomnia. I've driven away my best friend-- I'm tired of life-- alone.
  • Can 100mg doxycycline hyclate be taken at the same time with zithromax?
    Patient was bitten by a deer tick and is taking doxycycline as preventive measure. A throat infection is developing for which the doxycycline seems to have no effect, though azithromycin has proven rapidly effective in the past. Should the doxycycline be discontinued during the azithromycin cycle? Or is the doxycycline cycle crucial?

  • 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
  • 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!
