G E Clarithromycin

I have a bitter taste in my mouth, I have been taking this med for 4 days, is this a side effect? I wake up in the night and have such a bitter taste, I brush my teeth, gargle with listerine, but nothing helps. Food doesn't taste right. I have 3 more days, should I continue? ## Ironically enough, "change in taste" is listed word for word as a general side effect of Clarithromycin. I think if it becomes too bothersome or severe, you may want to consider talking to your doctor about any other alternative antibiotics that can replace Clarithromycin for the remaining 3 days. It's likely that it may not go away until you stop taking what's causing it to begin with. You can learn more about this drug on the page for Clarithromycin Details I hope this info helps! ...

It was delivered from Lyncourt Drugs in Syracuse, NY and made me violently ill. I was vomiting, coudln't stand or visually focus 12 hours after taking ONE pill. I'd been on it for two weeks recently -purchased at a local Rite Aide with no problem. (Don't know that imprint number but the pills looked slightly different). Even a Pharmacist at a Kinney Drugs couldn't find the number. The dispensing Pharmacist Christine Verillo at Lyncourt said she was too busy with customers... ...

Clarithromycin 7158 93

I was prescribed Clarithromycin 14 x 500mg by my doctor at Christmas for a cold that seemed to be developing into a chest infection. I didn't want to be ill during Christmas so I got the prescription dispensed. In the event I didn't need to take it but the flu I now have has developed into a chest infection. Normally I am prescribed 250mg twice daily for 7 days. Could I take 500mg once per day for 7 days or should I cut the 500mg pill and take it as 250mg twice daily. I am concerned about compromising the efficiency of the treatment. Any advice? ## I can really only advise that you consult your doctor to see what you should do. Clarithromycin is only effective at treating infections, so if your problem has been caused by something else, it isn't going to help. It also might ... ...

My throat feels a lot better now cn i go back to taking the penicillin? ## Claire, I would advise against that,only a provider familiar with your history should make that decision . Firstly Pennicilin or any antibiotic for that matter SHOULD ALWAYS BE TAKEN TO ITS CONCLUSION UNLESS OTHERWISE DIRECTED BY YOUR PROVIDER. Many side effects are common within this class of drug most resolve rapidly if given a chance.If they become overly bothersome contact your doc for direction. ...

Statins and clarithromycin

Why have I had to stop taking statins while being treated for a chest infection with this drug? ## You might have to stop taking it, or lower your dosage, so be sure to follow your doctor's instructions on the matter.

large white tablet with letters GG 09 ## I have had cold since christmas coughing alot can't hear pressure in ears, seems like 1,000 bells ringing in ears dr says bacteria infection,congestion in right side of chest, has been 3 days and no change, have not ran fever ## For anyone else seeking such information… The general rule for antibiotics to know if the one you're taking is doing its job is that once you've taken it for a full 24 hours, there shouldn't be any worsening of your infection. And once you've taken it for a full 72 hours (3 days), you should start to see improvement. Learn more Clarithromycin details here. Thus, if it your condition gets worse after the first day, or doesn't improve after the 3rd day, then you should seek medical ... ...

Clarithromycin and abnormal heart rhyrhm

I have a history of heart arrthymias and just started taking Biaxin. After 2 days of taking 500 mg. 2 x day I seem to be having more arrhythmias. There is also a horrible taste in my mouth. My Dr said I had some fluid in one ear and a possible sinus infection. Three people I've been in contact with recently had these same symptoms which makes me think this is a virus but would amoxicillin be a better choice for me? ## Amoxicillin is an antibiotic in a different class than the clarithromycin you are taking but still an antibiotic. Viruses cannot be treated with antibiotics. Viruses just have to run their course. The only thing you can do against a virus is usually to vaccinate for it before it happens except there isn't one for the common Cold. Zinc is good for shortening colds a... ...

Bitter taste on Clarithromycin, anything to stop it?

I'm supposed to be taking Clarithromycin for long term use, but the bitter taste in my mouth is pretty bad. Since I'm on it for long term use, is there anything that will mitigate this side effect? I can't constantly have candy or food in my mouth. ## Hello, MeSha! How are you? I'm very sorry about the problem that you're having. How long have you been taking it? Side effects will typically taper off in severity and then go away entirely, once your body gets used to the medication, but that may take a month, or so.
