  • From this study (4 years ago):

  • Patient haad atrial arhythmias and hypertension controlled with medication until prescribed Azithromycin on Dec 31; Patient called attention to physician and pharmacist concern because of the other regular medications; both physcian and pharmacist replied, it is onnly for 5 days. During the months following the completion of the dosage weird things began to happen related to hypertension and heart rate; then on July 7 same drug called in by phone. I again mentioned my drug regimen; Again got answer "only for 5 days." On the 4th day I was transported by ambulance to ER with bp exceeding 220/110; after lowering with clonidine 0.2 mg,I was told to go home and finish medicine. I did and next day was worse and again transported to ER with b.p. 251/115. It took Clonidine .2 twice 30 minutes apart to bring it down. I was send home and to date and still have multiple hypetensive and incresaed atrial fib. I am scheduled to see a cardiologist. I feel the drug interactied with all four reasons given and may have damaged my one kidney. One kidney was lost due to cancer in 1996, but the other was functioning fine until now.
