19 Mar 2013 I had an immediate reaction after taking Azithromycin. My heart started racing and I felt weak and lightheaded. The second dose made me feel worse; I became sweaty and couldn't stand up. My heart raced and then I experienced a body tremor. I had never had one before and I never had one again. It has been 4 years since then. I would never take this drug again. I have always been healthy and never had heart palpitations in my life until I took Azithromycin.

29 Sep 2011 I was prescribed Sandoz Azithromycine for upper respiratory infection. Took first dose as prescribed: 2 pills @ 250 and 24 hours later 1 pill @ 250. Developed severe allergic reaction and rash at night time, had to go to the hospital for shot of antihistamine and steroids to stop it. Had to take antihistamine for 3 days after that because its a strong antibiotic and it stays in the system for a couple of days. Very upset because for those two days that I was taking antibiotic it worked incredibly well, down side was the price - $110 for 6 pills and allergy reaction.
