Azithromycin Convulsion Causes and Reviews


Seizures are symptoms of a brain problem. They happen because of sudden, abnormal electrical activity in the brain. When people think of seizures, they often think of Convulsions in which a person's body shakes rapidly and uncontrollably. Not all seizures cause Convulsions. There are many types of seizures and some have mild symptoms. Seizures fall into two main groups. Focal seizures, also called partial seizures, happen in just one part of the brain. Generalized seizures are a result of abnormal activity on both sides of the brain.

Most seizures last from 30 seconds to 2 minutes and do not cause lasting harm. However, it is a medical emergency if seizures last longer than 5 minutes or if a person has many seizures and does not wake up between them. Seizures can have many causes, including medicines, high fevers, head injuries and certain diseases. People who have recurring seizures due to a brain disorder have epilepsy.

Azithromycin Convulsion Reviews

Tue, 30 Apr 2013

Jewel.... I too have loss taste and smell. Have u regained yours?

Thu, 08 Mar 2012

I am female, 59, and have not been sick in 6 years.  I got bronchitis for which the doctor prescribed Azithromycin.  Within a day, I had severe panic attacks.  I was very sick and wanted so much to rest but found I had to keep moving to keep the panic attacks at bay. I walked outdoors and my husband drove me around so I could have things to look at.  TV frightened me, books frightened me, the internet frightened me.  I have NEVER had a panic attack before.  I was beyond amazed.  This stuff is poison. I refused to take the 6th dose.  Panic attacks lessened and stopped altogether on 7th day after I first took it.

Wed, 18 Jan 2012

After first dosage 3 days ago, I have not been able to sleep at night.  That on top of the bad cold and upper respiratory infection I am so tired and cannot get well with this going on. I have 2 tabs left and will not take anymore.  I have to get some rest as I work full time and have to be able to do my job.

Fri, 12 Oct 2012

Within 90 minutes of consuming my first dose yesterday, I was hit with very intense abdominal pain followed by horrible diarrhea,later compounded by some difficulty in breathing during the night. This morning I woke up to rashes on both upper arms and across my back. Won't be taking anymore of this stuff. Will stick with homeopathic remedies and see if it works.
