 2  sinus infection Bad Hunger pains that I can't get to go away no matter how much I force myself to eat. Can't sleep at night bc of this pain and I toss and turn all night long. No appetite. Major Acid Reflux & Bloating. Night Sweats. Thirsty . The most awful feeling in the world feeling hungry at bedtime. I dread bedtime bc I have to shove tons of foods down my mouth and the pain still wont go away. :-( Bloating is so bad I feel pregnant. I toss and turn all night long with bad dreams and sweating.

 1  Cellulitis Crippling anxiety, dizziness, insomnia, nausea, Awful drug. SEVERE anxiety & insomnia. Stayed up for 2 days. Anxiety was horrendous. I stopped the med early (5 days instead of 10). It took almost 2 weeks to feel better and have less anxiety from this. Thank God I am 100% myself again. Never take this drug if you think you are at risk for anxiety. Id rather die than take this again... F 34 5 days

 1  Bronchitis Was soo happy to start the Rx so I could start feeling well..I was fine first day, second day... Holy Crap! I started stressing that I was dying from something (not Bronchitis) so yes, anxiety and depression for sure! I am dizzy, naseous, abdominal pain really bad, like menstrual pain but oh so much worse! Fever, chills, back pain,like someone to the boots to my kidneys, the knoxious gas coming from my mouth, felt like I was breathing out poison. No energy....sleeping a lot. Oh..did I mention the diarrea! I decided to stop taking afternoon of day 5. That was yesterday...I still have unbelievable abdo pain, dizzy naseous and weak. Anyone know how long till out of your system? The Dr.does not think these effects are from the Biaxžn after reading this site...I think differently. Still, going for more tests. This is horrible! And as others have stated, Worse than suffering the bronchitis to start with. 45 5 days

 3  Tonsillitus I couldn't go the full 10 days. My throat doesn't hurt anymore, but the side effects were too intense to handle. They included: Feeling like everything was unreal, like I was floating around. Intense anxiety, shakiness, sweating, shallow breathing, iron taste in my mouth,nausea, feeling like my skin was crawling, dazed and confused and complete insomnia. I was given this because I'm allergic to penicillin, but honestly, the effects of this drug were just as bad as penicillin. I know antibiotics are recommended for bacterial infections, but I can't lose 10 days of my life in an anxiety ridden dream state. F 27 3 days

 1  ear infection After taking first dosage at night, I wake up several times in the mid-night. In the morning of the following day, I had stomachache and nausea, same as feeling of suffering from gastoenteritis. I felt depressed, completely isolated from world. I felt very depresses, and I thought all things around were negative and annoying. I cried for no reason. At night I got insomnia and could not sleep until 4 o'clock....also did not want to eat... I got no side effects of other medicine. Although this works for me, the side effects outweighs the advantage. I got terrible emotional problems that I have never had before. After reading comments here I am feeling relieved now. It is the third day of taking this drug F 25 1 weeks

 2  Strep/Sinus Infection The Nausea was the worst. I took as recommended and 8+ hours later, I still feel like I am going to vomit. The first night I took it, I couldn't even look at food. I have a very strong stomach too, and I'm only on my second day and can barely eat. Be prepared to eat simple (tomato soup with water, not milk, chicken noodle soup, etc). I can't take probiotics like recommended. To me...the side effects outweight the benefits. And the doctor prescribed this to me a week and a half after I was wrongly diagnoised with a viral infection. Ended up having strep and an extremely bad sinus infection. F 26 10 days

History
 1  bronchial infection HORRIBLE DEPRESSION, ANXIETY, NIGHTMARES, AND NONSTOP CRYING! I thought I was losing my mind! Took the last one this morning, before I read this site, and now wish I would not have taken it. I thought maybe my Zoloft quit working, but NEVER had these effects from Zoloft in 10 years! Actually went to the ER by ambulance Wednesday because of bad muscle pain, fever, anxiety. I thought I was having a heart attack.! I still feel shaky but better since I read this blog. BEFORE YOU TAKE ANY ANTIBIOTIC, GOOGLE IT! I had the same reaction to doxycycline a few months back, but after taking it two days I googled it and found that it has a LOT of anxiety/depression side effects. I am drinking lots of water to try and flush it out of my system. F 57 10 days

 5  lung infection Really bad heartburn the first couple of days, almost enough to make me nauseous, took a whole bottle of maalox, no help, pharmacist told me to take it with a full meal, and that helped a lot. I had left to go on vacation at the time so wasn't eating full meals, once I started making sure to have especially a complete breakfast at the hotel, it did wonders to curb the stomach problems. I guess the banana and muffin I was having before just wasn't enough to stop the stomach aches. Well the nice side effect was it got rid of my nose rosacea! I had a nose that was always red, and had lumps on it, sore lumps that if you gently squeezed, pus would come out. Had had that for years, used topical ointment, no effect, took tetracycline, no effect. After 14 days of this strong antibiotic, I have never had that problem with my nose again, and it has been 20 years now! I still have spider veins on my cheeks, but have never had the sore, lumpy, pus-y nose since. I put down my age at the time I took the drug. F 40 14 days

 1  pharyngitis, sinusitis Nausea, confusion, dizziness, throat swelling, ear ache, congestion, chest pain, increased heart rate, crying, headache. Worst medication I have ever taken. I'm only on day two and I feel like I'm getting worse. Pain medication isn't even helping anymore. My throat now feels 10x more swollen than when I started this antibiotic. Hate urgent care for prescribing this to me. In absolute misery right now, and can't stop crying from the pain it's causing. F 19 10 days

 1  throat infection (didn't have) The horrible taste in my mouth came almost immediately. I have awful cramps in my stomach like someone is stabbing me. I have not had diarrhea but I suspect that is because of probiotics (taking culturelle florastor and kefir) the taste in my mouth is so bad i cannot sleep. I am stopping these pills immediately. It turns out I have tonsil stones not a throat infection. I really hope this goes away soon. F 23 2 days

 1  Strep Throat Metallic taste in mouth, nausea, fatigue, dizziness, insomnia, abdominal pain, gas, tremors, rapid heartbeat, diarrhea, numbness in limbs. I went to Urgent Care for Strep Throat. I have an allergy to Penicillin so Doctor prescribed me Biaxin 500mg (I am only 105 pounds!). He said the only reaction would be the metallic taste and nausea. I asked him for an alternative and he told me no. Side effects began on day one and each day has brought more side effects and intense reactions. I've even been taking a probiotic. I am done. Going to regular doctor to seek an alternative. F 31 3 days

 1  Strep Throat The first day I took this, I made sure to take it right after a big meal as directed. Within about 4 hours, I was screaming and crying with extreme abdominal pain. I had to take two T3's for it to subside, which just made my stomach feel like I was experiencing acid reflux. I was nauseous, dizzy, having difficulty breathing (high anxiety) and felt a constant burning sensation from my stomach to my chest. The next day however, my throat felt so much better....maybe it worked but also gave me bad side effects? Regardless, I immediately stopped taking it and switched to something else. I would stay clear! There are plenty of other antibiotics to choose from! F 20 10 days

 5  Chest infection No side effects whatsoever. This drug has been amazing for me (sorry to hear about all the side effects in other people) and not only cleared my chest infection, within a few days some facial rash/pimples I had been stuck with for over a year completely disappeared and the chronic sinusitis, ear plugging, and inability to smell I had been dealing with for years completely resolved - I am shocked in the most pleasant way. Who knew my problems were all bacteria related - I am a new person. It's worth trying. Incredibly effective. No side effects at all in my case. F 48 14 days

 4  Sinusitis, bronchitis Metallic taste, bloating, acid reflux (sore throat as a result), severe gas. I had tried Zithromax twice, Levaquin twice, and Prednisone twice. This is the only antibiotic that worked for me. Make sure you take a quality probiotic while using this medication. I used Living Food inner-eco fresh coconut water probiotic, which is liquid. I used it in the afternoon to give it a fair shot at working. And ladies, make sure you get a prescription for Diflucan, you're going to need it. F 41 10 days

 1  Submandibulr swelling?ear pain/Lyme This drug is poison as far as I am concerned. Was supposed to be on it for 30 days - yeh - right! Started out with the most nauseating metallic taste and gut wrenching sourness and ended within 24 hours of not only that but painful diarrhea for hours on end. I woke up at least 4 times in the middle of the night because of these excessive symptoms. I missed a day of work I was so sick - I stopped at day 2 - there is no drug worth this much pain and misery. It has been 2 days since the drug entered my body and my gut is still messed up. Report your side effects to the FDA if you can. They really need to take this drug off the market. If you read about it now on their website - you will see all of the damage is has the propensity to do....which in my opinion - it is WAY more than your typical antibiotic. F 49 1 days

 1  sinus and ear infection This drug is horrible! Was supposed to take it 10 days. On the 2nd day I had watery diarrhea. On the 4th day, it felt like someone rammed a pole in my gut. Eating was out of the question. Then I got uncontrollable tremors, my fingers went numb, and I started varying between freezing then sweating like crazy. I was up all night vomiting, sweating, shaking, crying, and feeling like my head would explode. I saw 3 different doctors, all said the biaxin could not be causing these side effects. I took myself off of this crap drug. Will never take it again and have far less respect for doctors. They didn't want to help me. They all had tablets and could have Googled biaxin side effects, but I guess they were too busy to do that. Don't take this if you don't have to. F 42 4 days

 1  Sinus/chest infection We'll- it's 3:42 in the a.m. & I haven't taken a pill since 8:30 am!! 2.5 weeks of a pretty hefty mucous intense in both face and chest problem, with a 10 day go on antiviral antibiotics, with no success in getting better, I went back to dr for the "fix this sinus stuff" appointment. 3 pills total taken; 2 in the am and pm yesterday, one in the am today- the side effects have been unbelievable! Insomnia is so complete I might decide to just go ahead and reorganize the garage right now. Itching, headache and at 12:00 noon today I thought death was on my door stop. After an hour of clammy, uncomfortable sweaty stuff (thought it was one sucker of a "over 40 female" heat flash) I began a session of cold sweats I have never experienced. Hands started to shake, and the feeling of burning from the inside out was real. I thought " people ACTUALLY do spontaneously combust!?" Sweat poured off of me for over 5 minutes, and the weakness that set in was extremely scary. I turned a unique shade of yellow/white. No diarrhea yet, but I do take probiotics daily. Did I mention the headache and the dizziness? I will not swallow another one of these pills. I received a steroid shot at the dr's office and seem to have turned the corner with the chest mucus and nose drainage. I am very excited to one night actually go to sleep for more than 1.5 hours. It's hopeful- but don't know how long this ridiculous drug stays in one's system. Save a sheep and don't take thi F 41 1 days

 1  Sinus Chronic Anxiety Attacks Depression Disturbed sleep Lack of appetite Nausea PLEASE understand that IF you do have any CNS side effects such as anxiety or depression, as bad as they are do NOT do running to a doctor as all they will do is tell you its not related to the drug and prescribe you even more drugs which at best will mask the symptoms but at worst leave you addicted to drugs that are harder to get off than heroin (Fact) I understand how horrible it is but try and understand this... like ANY side effect, they will pass in time and there ARE things you can do to increase the recovery. 1) Stop the antibiotic 2) Buy a good quality Pro-biotic in capsule form. as the drug that raped your friendly gut bacteria and yogurt is not. 3) Patience and time. WARNING: People who come on here claiming this drug ruined their lives and now they're on a list of additional drugs and have lost their jobs, relationships "because" of the anxiety and depression have panicked and run for more drugs and it all becomes a vicious cycle as tranquillisers are a poison in themselves.

On the internet there is study about Clarithromycin and its effect on the gut flora...this "great" drug will supress bifidobacterium and lactobacilli species leaving open space for gut pathogens like c-diff,candida albicans.etc to take upper hand.Gut flora recovery after course of this drug in healthy individuals takes 30-60 days unfortunately for some it will shift gut flora composition so it will take pretty much longer time....with some help . Take this with Saccharomyces Boulardii its a strong beast it will protect your intestinal linings against Candida , C-Diff. After you finish course add Lactobacillus Acidophilus DDS-1/NAS/LA-5 (for small intestine) and Bifidobacterium Longum BB536 ( the most dominant friendly bacterium in large intestine) cheap probiotics like Enzymatic Therapy Pearls should be ok , they work. Good luck , clarithromycin will do more harm than good. M 25 4 days
