I just added Erythromycin to my "can't take" list. Within 12 hours of starting it, I had D. By the time I returned to my dentist three days later, I was having that ominous heavy pain across my lower abdomen. I told him he could give me Zithromax, Cipro, or something injectable and syringes. He gave me the Z-pack and my pain was gone the same day, D. much better the next.
I think I'll just change from a "can't take" list to a very short "can take" list.
