Hello all 🙂 some of advice please . I’ve been taking azithromycin 250mg, 3 times a week since December. I’ve been prescribed Co Amoxicillin for a mild chest infection, but i forget to ask the Dr whether I should still take the Azithromycin as usual or stop until I’ve completed the Co Amoxicillin. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks Steve
Antibiotics : Hello all 🙂 some of... - Lung Conditions C...
I’ve just asked Pete and he says he carries on with Azithromycin unless taking Ciprofloxacin for a chest infection. Pete has taken Coamoxicillin in the past but not for chest infection. Xxx
Suggest you speak to your pharmacist who will be best placed to advise on medications.
As Bevvy says is best.i m on daily azithromycin twice a day.i used to take both these+ other rescue antibiotic but was too harsh on stomach,so i now stop the azithromycin til course is finished
Hi I take them every day but my doctor told me to stop when taking other antibiotics but I was in hospital last November they had me still taking them daily along with other antibiotics but i would at chemist or doctors .
Hi Steve I did stop azithromycin originally but since then I take both due to being getting pneumonia twice and doctors said fine to continue azithromycin while having a 7 day course.
Keep taking the Azithro. My wife has just had an eye op and took Amoxicillin for 5 days before and 3 days following the op as well as the Azithro. Azithro works not only as an antibiotic but also anti-inflammatory. Eye op looks to be a success and breathing getting better with her 3x per week physio. Good luck, take care, Chris.
My consultant tells me always to continue even when on othe antibiotics. 👍
I was advised by my Respiratory team to stop the Azithromycin when on emergency antibiotics dont need both xxSheila 💕
Hi Steve I was told by my GP to continue to take Azithromycin when on any other antibiotic. I mentioned this at my consultant's appointment and she said that I should definitely stop taking the Azithromycin. She wrote to the GP to tell them that this is the case. I hope that you feel better soon. best wishes. Pat.
And I was told to stop! 🤷 😂 I think a call to the pharmacy or doctors is in order ! xx
Hello Steve. I think we are all pretty well versed in our medication and what to take and not to take but we have no idea what anyone else should be doing. I would advise contacting your chemists. I think this is case by case. Best wishes. 🙂👋
I was told to stop the azithromycin while on other antibiotics
I was advised to stop the azithromycin whilst taking antibiotics for exacerbation, also I would say that at times of hospital attention I have been told co amoxicillin is next to useless.
I have always been told to stop azithromycin what ever other antibiotics I have been prescribed. Pharmacist or call GP to clarify what is best for you. I hope you are feeling better soon.
