Azithromycin is generally well tolerated. The most common side effects are diarrhea or loose stools, nausea, abdominal pain, and vomiting which may occur in fewer than one in twenty persons who receive azithromycin. Rare side effects include abnormal liver tests, allergic reactions, and nervousness.
And if you do a little research, including talking to your DOCTOR before giving your kid a medication, you'll see that it's the same typical possible reactions as any other antibiotic.
If your baby is eating foods, give starches and carbs to offset any possible diarrhea. Always give the medication with food (formula or breastmilk) so there is something else in the stomach with it to help prevent stomach upset. It's easy. My kids have been on antibiotics several times and these things have always helped.
And I agree...ignore gailll...she is annoying as hell.
