wisdom tooth infection
I was started on Azithromycin by my Dr. in case I had strep throat but come to find out I have a real bad wisdom tooth infection, which is very painful..The script of Azithromycin is for 5days will this work for my infection in my tooth? ## Hello, Crystal! How are you? It may help, but 5 days may not be enough to completely eradicate the infection and it will not correct the underlying cause of the dental infection, so you'll still need to see your dentist, or the infection will keep returning. Is there anything else I can help with?

ggd6 for headaches
It's Azithromycin. It usually is a 5 day Rx prescription. Results from it last 4-10 days after prescription is over. I was given it for chronic headaches. If your doctor prescribes you GGD6 for headaches, I would ask for something else. It hasn't worked for me and I'm still getting headaches daily. ## Azithromycin is an antibiotic that's used to treat bacterial infections, it is not something prescribe for headaches. Are you certain that is the medication you're thinking of? Is the ggd6 supposed to be the marking on something or the name of something?

craztronin azitromicina 500 mg
Can i drink beer while taking this medication? ## Hi, Mellie! How are you? Combining the medication with alcohol can cause an aggravation of the side effects, making them more intense than usual, so you may experience more nausea, drowsiness and dizziness than normal. This could result in one drink affecting you as if you'd had two and so on. Learn more Azithromycin details here. Thus, it's best not to imbibe, while taking it, but if you choose to do so anyway, then please make sure that you will not be driving or operating any heavy machinery. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Craztronin Azitromicina 500 mg was given to my husband and he is allergic to sulfa. Is there sulfa this med????
