 2  for mild acne they worked really well on my skin but gave me quite severe mood swings and feelings of anxiety and depression and occasional suicidal thoughts which really frightened me, im certain that these drugs played a role in how i was feeling although there may have been other causes this was the main cause because before i was taking them and after i stopped taking them i was feeling okay again i've taken other antibiotics to help my skin and every time i have been on them i have came to the same conclusion that they affect my mood to a serious degree which i cant handle and so i come off of them. I think that this medication can be very dangerous and especially if its taken over a long period of time (for me around 1-2 months or more could have a serious affect on me) and people should be informed at how this medication can cause serious mood swings/depression/anxiety. This i feel should be put on the side effects list as there are others who have had a similar problem as i have had. I think that there should be some action taken on this if possible as i wouldn't one anyone to have the same experience i have had. Generally with this drug i think you should be very cautious and sensible and i think try to take the least dosage you possibly can as this will hopefully reduce these side effects or so i have been told.

 5  Persistant sore throat None whatsoever. Cured the sore throat which later culture info pointed to a staph infection with resistance to penicillins so this was a good choice for antibiotic. I might add this was a second try on this problem because the first was ENT and gave me nothing. The second GP believed me and did something and later on my own I found out the culture results that the first had never followed up on. M 58 10 days

E.E.S.  (ERYTHROMYCIN ETHYLSUCCINATE):  Erythromycin is used to treat a wide variety of bacterial infections. It may also be used to prevent certain bacterial infections. Erythromycin is known as a macrolide antibiotic. It works by stopping the growth of bacteria. This antibiotic treats or prevents only bacterial infections. It will not work for viral infections (such as common cold, flu). Using any antibiotic when it is not needed can cause it to not work for future infections.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
