Azithromycin Dyspnoea Causes and Reviews


When you're short of breath, it's hard or uncomfortable for you to take in the oxygen your body needs. You may feel as if you're not getting enough air. Sometimes you can have mild breathing problems because of a stuffy nose or intense exercise. But shortness of breath can also be a sign of a serious disease.

Many conditions can make you feel short of breath:

  • Lung conditions such as asthma, emphysema, or pneumonia
  • Problems with your trachea or bronchi, which are part of your airway system
  • Heart disease can make you feel breathless if your heart cannot pump enough blood to supply oxygen to your body
  • Anxiety and panic attacks
  • Allergies

If you often have trouble breathing, it is important to find out the cause.

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.

I was diagnosed with brochitis and was prescribed Azithromycin in liquid form. 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.
