User Comments about Clarithromycin
25 Nov 2011 used it for H. pylori. Very strong antibiotic but side effects were terrible. Nauseous all the time and threw up a couple of times. Not fun to take

22 Feb 2011 It seems to be effective in ridding original symptoms of severe cough, nasal congestion, chest congestion, & aches at the expense of severe diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and metallic taste in mouth.

17 Dec 2008 While the persistent acrid/metallic taste is unpleasant, it can be diminished by using sugar-free mint candies/etc. It is important to continue taking the medication despite mild side effects to ensure that bacterial resistance does not occur!
