A following Clarithromycin side effect report was submitted by a user.
Male patient reported the following Clarithromycin side effects :
Had sinusitis caused by a lousy dental work (root canal). Was prescribed clarythromycin. First of all, got a bad taste in my mouth which didn't go away. Had a slight rash on my face. But on the 4th day I woke up in the middle of the night because of a horrible noise in my ears. Tried to fall asleep - didn't work. Then I felt anxious, and restless so that I had to go for a walk to get rid of this feeling. Walked around 5 kms at 3 of the night. Came home, but still felt some anxiety. Have never had this in my life.
