Azithromycin Rhabdomyolysis Reviews

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.

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.
