 1  Sinus infection I'm allergic to many antibiotics so this has been my go to when I do become ill. Never had an issue. This time, however, I started having severe anxiety that I couldn't shake. Along with diarrhea, bouts of nausea, dry mouth, and sleep issues. I felt off and weird in my head. I also have anxiety and adhd regularly but this was different and I couldn't control it. I stopped on day 3 once I put together what was happening. I won't take this again unless absolutely necessary. F 37 3 days

 1  As Precaution due to Covid Severe anxiety/panic, irritability, can't sleep, stomach pain, diarrhea so severe almost couldn't make it to the bathroom. I have taken this medication in the past and never had this reaction, not sure if it's the manufacture or what the case may be. I definitely will not ever take it again. I was prescribed the medication for precaution because I tested positive for Covid with mild symptoms. Night one, I woke up extremely hot and it felt like my blood rushing throughout my body, followed by complete feeling of fear. I had my husband take me to the ER because I wasn't sure what was going on and given I tested positive for Covid I wanted to be on the safe side. By time I got to the ER I felt a little better and of course all my test came back normal. I skipped the second day, did not take the antibiotic and felt a little better. Decided to take the antibiotic on day 3 & 4 with today being day 4 and ended up back at the ER. I felt like I could not breath because I was having an anxiety attack, my body was shaking from the inside, completely irritable and couldn't concentrate. This is horrible, definitely won't ever take the medication again. F 43 4 days

 1  Chlamydia Headache, Insomnia, Increased Anxiety, Low Mood I tested positive for Chlamydia and was given a shot of Rocephin and 1000mg (4 250mg pills of Zithromax). I didn't start to feel bad until 2 or 3 days after taking the antibiotics. My anxiety began to ramp up and I also developed insomnia, I felt "blah" and had a constant headache for multiple days. It has been 10 days since I have taken my 1000mg dose and I'm starting to feel better. All symptoms are on the decline although my sleep is still messed up. I did some research and found out that antibiotics kill not only bad bacteria but also good bacteria in your gut. This happens to be where many of your neurotransmitters are produced which I think is the reason why I felt so many mental effects. I read up on probiotics and prebiotics and started taking both for the foreseeable future. I also took a trip to Whole Foods and have been eating a healthy diet of organic fruits and veggies. Hopefully, I am on the mend! I know one thing, I will never take that antibiotic again! It made me feel compeltely off. M 41 1 days

 1  Bartonella Dizziness, severe panic attacks, heart beat intense, major nausea, constipation, difficult swallowing food Do NOT take this medicine. Ask your doctor if there is any medicine you could take besides this. I have had severe anxiety and severe depression my whole life, but nothing will ever, end I mean EVER. Come close to how this medicine made me feel. I felt better without it. M 21 5 days

 3  Severe sinus infection....ear infec So I don't like the drug. . granted it did help clear up some of my sinus infection and I do feel better than I did before. But I need sleep. This drug messes with my sleep big time. I can't get to sleep and when I do I'm in and out of sleep all night. Then I am anxious the next day because I didn't sleep. This pill also gave me awful and I mean awful diarrhea from day 1. I had to watch what I ate... Half the time I couldn't make it through dinner without a bathroom trip.. the stomach pains are horrible. F 39 5 days

 3  Sinus infection This is one of two maybe three antibiotics I can take, and I have taken it for many years. This is the first time I have felt anxiety on it, however. I am distracting myself with TV. Reading other patients reviews makes me want to stress that you should take Zithromax with food, substantial food, not just a few chips or piece of toast. Follow up any antibiotic regime with a lot of yogurt to replenish good bacteria in the gut. Very important. Hang in there. I wish you all well. F 56 5 days

 1  Possible lung infection During taking the medication I only experienced mild bloating, but at the end, I started to get timing him my ears. It is 7 months later and I have official diagnosis of PERMANENT HEARING LOSS and very loud tinnitus (ringing). I will have to spend thousands on hearing aids to compensate. There was no warning on the picking of hearing loss, though it is common. It should not be prescribed if underlying cause is unknown (viral vs bacterial). M 39 10 days

 1  Possible Sinus Infection Severe anxiety attack, sweats, chills, shaking, ER visit STAY AWAY. I had to go to the ER because I thought I was having a heart attack. Turned out it was this terrible pill. Gave me a serious anxiety reaction that I could not control, my heart rate was above 130 and I couldn't get it down for thirty minutes at the ER. I don't suffer from anxiety or panic attacks. Happened about four hours after I took the Zithromax. F 33 1 days
