I was recently diagnosed with pharyngitis and a double ear infection so the doc put me on Azithromycin. She originally wanted to put me on penicillin but had to explain to her about my UC (I went to urgent care)
Anyway, I was just wondering. If anyone takes this antibiotic, if it causes stomach pain. Not intestinal pain but actual stomach pain. I make sure I eat when I take them but I still have strong stomach spasms when I take them. I am highly prone to sinus infections and they usually prescribe the Z-pack and I get the same thing every time.
It affects my gut a bit by increasing my bm's but mostly it just hurts my stomach. Could it it be possibly my GERD that makes it hurt more?
