Zithromycin Tachycardia Causes and Reviews


An arrhythmia is a problem with the rate or rhythm of your heartbeat. It means that your heart beats too quickly, too slowly, or with an irregular pattern. When the heart beats faster than normal, it is called Tachycardia. When the heart beats too slowly, it is called bradycardia. The most common type of arrhythmia is atrial fibrillation, which causes an irregular and fast heart beat.

Many factors can affect your heart's rhythm, such as having had a heart attack, smoking, congenital heart defects, and stress. Some substances or medicines may also cause arrhythmias.

Symptoms of arrhythmias include

  • Fast or slow heart beat
  • Skipping beats
  • Lightheadedness or dizziness
  • Chest pain
  • Shortness of breath
  • Sweating

Your doctor can run tests to find out if you have an arrhythmia. Treatment to restore a normal heart rhythm may include medicines, an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) or pacemaker, or sometimes surgery.

Zithromycin Tachycardia Reviews

Tue, 16 Aug 2011
I just had a very scary time last night after taking AZithromycin for a few days, I started feeling very strange. Lightheaded, intense pressure in the chest and neck, chest pain, numbness and swelling in the arms and hands. Tachycardia kicked in on day three. I had Atrial Septal Defect as a child, which was repaired, but I wonder now, if I don't have A-Fib. I've noticed the fluttering in the chest lately. Is it possible that this was triggered by a previously existing condition that has been missed? I was started on AZithromycin to be alternated with Ery-Tab for Gastroparesis. Now, I'm afraid to take either drug. I'll be seeing my internist this afternoon and will be asking the same questions.
