Azithromycin Cough Causes and Reviews


Coughing is a reflex that keeps your throat and airways clear. Although it can be annoying, Coughing helps your body heal or protect itself. Coughs can be either acute or chronic. Acute Coughs begin suddenly and usually last no more than 2 to 3 weeks. Acute Coughs are the kind you most often get with a cold, flu, or acute bronchitis. Chronic Coughs last longer than 2 to 3 weeks. Causes of chronic Cough include

  • Chronic bronchitis
  • Asthma
  • Allergies
  • COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease)
  • GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease)
  • Smoking
  • Throat disorders, such as croup in young children
  • Some medicines

Water can help ease your Cough - whether you drink it or add it to the air with a steamy shower or vaporizer. If you have a cold or the flu, antihistamines may work better than non-prescription Cough medicines. Children under four should not have Cough medicine. For children over four, use caution and read labels carefully.


Azithromycin Cough Reviews

Mon, 01 Feb 2010
I think I have a build up of bronchial secretions. When I get brochitus -- I do not get a Cough. But I feel like just beyone my mouth -- in my wind pipe is a build up of mucus. I do not know to Cough it up. Could this be a side effect of arithymycin?
Wed, 10 Nov 2010
i took Azithromycin as recommended by my friend who is a doctor. after less than an hour from the time i took it, my stomach was burning. after a while i was vomiting. then i had a diarrhea and my heartbeat was fast. i was catching up my breath. the pain in my stomach was incomparable. it was extreme. i noticed, though, that my nose was no longer clogged and i was not Coughing hard anymore. in less than twelve hours, my phlegm was no longer that sticky. the effect on my Cough and cold was amazing. i wonder if there are ways to lessen the side effects of Azithromycin considering that it is really effective.
Mon, 24 Oct 2011
I was perscribed Azithromycin for pneumonia. I have a terrible Cough. I get stomach cramps about an hour after taking it. After three days, everything tasted like onions to me, even water. Also it gave me bad gas. The hard Coughing and the gas rendered me a hermit for a few days.
