Azithromycin Pneumonia Causes and Reviews


Pneumonia is an infection in one or both of the lungs. Many germs, such as bacteria, viruses, and fungi, can cause Pneumonia. You can also get Pneumonia by inhaling a liquid or chemical. People most at risk are older than 65 or younger than 2 years of age, or already have health problems.

Symptoms of Pneumonia vary from mild to severe. See your doctor promptly if you

  • Have a high fever
  • Have shaking chills
  • Have a cough with phlegm that doesn't improve or gets worse
  • Develop shortness of breath with normal daily activities
  • Have chest pain when you breathe or cough
  • Feel suddenly worse after a cold or the flu

Your doctor will use your medical history, a physical exam, and lab tests to diagnose Pneumonia. Treatment depends on what kind you have. If bacteria are the cause, antibiotics should help. If you have viral Pneumonia, your doctor may prescribe an antiviral medicine to treat it.

Preventing Pneumonia is always better than treating it. Vaccines are available to prevent pneumococcal Pneumonia and the flu. Other preventive measures include washing your hands frequently and not smoking.

Azithromycin Pneumonia Reviews

Tue, 24 Aug 2010
I am currently taking Azithromycin - 5 day dose.. started Friday, 8/20 for Pneumonia, Sunday shortly after dinner the diarrhea started - HOLY COW.. talk about immense pain and discomfort!! The same happened Monday night after dinner. Today is my last dose, I'm hoping this will be the end, but guessing it will continue until it is completely out of my system - another 7 days. God help me!! Did the Welchol help??

I am sorry you are in pain. But did you not just say you have Pneumonia!? I think that life threatening infection is worse than the diarrhea dont you?
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.
