I have taken Zpack about 10 times. Never had side effects until this time. BAD stomach cramps, skipping beats, gas, insomnia. I won't do this again.

Additional Thoughts
It used to be fine and clear up infection right away. This is not worth it...too much going on. I feel worse than without it.

Side Effects
The first time I took Zithromax I experienced nausea and stomach pain and mild diarrhea. The second time I took it about 3 months later I experienced severe stomach cramps and diarrhea 1-2 hours after taking the first dose.

Additional Thoughts
This medicine really worked great in clearing up my infection fast the first time I took it so I just endured the adverse reactions. The second time I took it the reaction was so violent, I called the doctor for a change of presciption.
