    Female, aged 43. Had flu symptoms (sore, throat, night fever, slept for 36 hours) then had to get on with family life. A week and a half later still feeling unwell (bit spaced out, very tired, blocked nose and phlegm) so went to doctors. Prescribed Clarithromycin (twice a day for five days course). On the first day (two pills taken) still feeling tired but thought it just the flu still. On the second day (third pill) needed to slepp mid morning for an hour. On the third morning (5th pill) again needed to sleep for hour in morning. Feel shattered.

    Just need to add. I am currently swimming for charity so needed to "swim through" the flu. I would say this helped. I didn't feel tired whilst actually doing a mile swimming today and I felt better however, the tiredness creeps back in and I am in bed early, say 8-9pm.

Also I did feel bloated after swimming which is unusual as I had not eaten anything and had some gas.

  • From this study (3 years ago):

  • Compared to Oxycodone/Oxycontin alone, combined with Clarithromycin there was an improvement to the level of pain experienced. In addition there was also a slight increase in typical Oxycodone/Oxycontin side effects, such as mild fatigue.
