I got mine from the neighbor...didn’t think about ‘vertigo’ being contagious! She was past the sneezing, etc. My doctor insisted I start taking the Z pac antibiotics she prescribed, so I started them at noon today, then on the news tonight they say they are killing people....I have SUCH good timing! LOL...if I disappear one day soon, you’ll know why.
[snip]Azithromycin, a commonly-prescribed antibiotic, may trigger a potentially deadly irregular heart rhythm for some patients, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warned Tuesday.
The antibiotic that’s sold as Zithromax, Zmax or sometimes referred to as a “Z-Pack” is prescribed to treat bacterial infections such as bronchitis, pneumonia, or ear infections.
Do you have a secondary lung infection? I took Zithro because I determined I had a secondary bacterial lung infection. If I had not figured that, I would have avoided antibiotics since they don’t do anything for viruses.
I did have irregular and fast heart episodes but I attributed it to the pneumonia which can also cause that. THEN I read about the Zithro the other day.
I guess I won’t be getting any to have on hand!!! I did read that Zithro does that for people who have already slow heart rate (yup, me) and/or low potassium in the blood. So maybe get some potassium to take? Live on bananas? Or maybe there are potassium tablets or something?
