Comments from related studies:
From this study (5 days ago):
I also had an i.v. I was wondering if this is supposed to spike up glucose levels
From this study (1 week ago):
A few months ago I went to the ER with severe afib, which had never happened before. Upon tests by a cardiologist following the event I was diagnosed with a leak in my mitral and aortic valves. There is no blockage and there is no family history of cardiac/valve problems in women on either side of my family.
I have had severe allergies and was prescribed Zithromax since 2000, sometimes needing back to back z-packs to take care of the sinus infections as a result of the allergies. Would like to know if there may be a correlation of heart valve/leaks/failure which may be attributed to taking zithromycin.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
Diagnosed with pneumonia and did take prednisone for two days. Became agitated and confused. Removed from prednisone because lungs sounded clearer but still experiencing hallucinations and some confusion. Still doing breathing treatments.
