    Hello Everyone,
    I just started taking zithromax and I felt really awful last night with the first dose. I am now afraid to take the next dose cause I have to go to work. Is this herxing and how long will it last. What are the symptoms of herxing?
    Soft Hugs to All

    Explain your symptoms. When did you start taking the ABX? What symptoms are you experiencing? The timing and symptoms can tell the doc whether this is Herxing versus not tolerating this med.

    Love, Mikie

    Hi Mikie
    I started taking the medication last night. I am self medicating because I have had a really sore throat for about 3 days with no relief. This is what the dr. proscribed last time I had this, so I am trying to skip the dr visit, to save money of course. Med is from Mexico, a spanish version of Zithromax. I will call him if I don't feel better in 24 hours. Thanks again for responding.
    Soft hugs,
    Cass
