Do zpaks bother your stomach too?

I have taken zpaks almost every time I'm sick, which isn't often, maybe 3 times a year. Every time I get a gut wrenching pain if I take them and eat AFTER I take a dose. If I eat before I'm fine. Even if I eat before AND after I get the pain. Anyone else have this problem?

  • Every time I have to take Zithromycin it does the same thing to me try eating a little something and then take the pill and then eat the rest of your meal sometimes it works. Because it is such a strong antibiotic it kills the good bacteria in our systems sometimes upping your intake of yogurt(probiotics) helps, Feel Better. ;)

  • I've gotten diarrhea from them. But they do knock out infections :(

  • @fallenruby, it's an antibiotic.

  • Nope. Zithromax doesn't bother me like that. If anything, I get a yeast infection from it.
