Clarithromycin For Pneumonia - Chemical Taste In My Mouth

Apr 25, 2007

I have been taking clarithromycin for pneumonia along with amoxicillin. the worst side effect i have experienced is the chemical taste in my mouth which has taken away my appetite and makes me nauseous. the only thing that masks it for a while is brushing my teeth, but my advice to anyone using these pills is to get rid of any air fresheners and take measures such as using roll on deodorant instead of a spray as this seems to aggravate it. i have just been given yet another course of these because my pneumonia has returned but to be honest i'd rather put up with the taste than end up in hospital again!

Nasty Taste In My Mouth - Less Zinc? Menopause?

Approx 6 months ago I developed a nasty salty taste in my mouth which seems to emanate from my tongue, I think, I have been to the dentist, no problems there, I have been to the doctor, had blood tests to eliminate anything more sinister, bloods came back fine so what is causing this. I did read somewhere that when going through the menopause, which I am, can cause a lot of things to change in your body, could this be one of them. Also I was told that it could be a sign of not enough Zinc in my system. I would love to hear from anyone else who may have encountered this problem. It doesn't make me feel ill so I do feel a bit of a fraud but it is the most irritating sensation and at its worse it is a real stinging sensation on my tongue.

Duodenal Ulcer :: PPI Side Effects - Dry Throat And Mouth With Metallic Taste

I was given lansoprazole due to a suspected stomach ulcer. I started taking it but was unable to continue to take the lansoprazole as it gave me a worse pain in my stomach than I already had and also a dry throat and mouth. I have now been diagnosed with h.pylori and started with triple therapy - esomeprazole (nexium)/amoxicillin/clarithromycin. The nexium isn't causing any stomach pain but is making my throat and mouth very dry and given me a sore throat and I am also suffering from a very unpleasant metallic taste in my mouth constantly. I went to the doctors again today and was given omeprazole to take instead but now I don't want to take it because I don't feel it will make much difference. Has anyone else had these side effects from the PPI and are there any alternatives I can take to inhibit the acid enough to let the antibiotics do their job?

Foul Taste In Mouth When Eating - Sore Throat And Side Of Tounge

Easter Sunday i woke up with a strange taste in my mouth.  Having had a Lamb curry the night before i thought it was this, however, as the day progressed, I found that everything I had to eat had an aftertaste of manure and made me feel sick.   My throat is sore to one side and I feel generall unwell.   Yes I have been to the doctor who I thought would give me antibiotics but he just said , you have a temperature, swollen glands, he could not see a throat infection and said it was a virus and I should get better within about 10 days.   He sent me to have some blood tests which are due back tomorrow.   I do feel generally unwell which is not like me at all.

GERD (acid Reflux) :: Constant Acid Taste In My Mouth

I can eat the smallest thing and get an acid taste in my mouth. The taste can stay in my mouth for hours. Does this mean that acid is continually fluxing into my esophagus while I have the acid taste?? I never feel acid in my esophagus or throat, just this acidy taste in my mouth. I worry that acid is fluxing for so many continual hours, if that is what is happening. I had the acid taste WORSE when I was on PPIs, so it doesn't make sense that it would be nonstop acid fluxing into my mouth, but I don't know. I am not seeing a gastroenterologist until October ...

Thyroid Disorders :: From A Sweet Taste To A Bitter Taste

(Background: Had an ear infection over the Summer that had me taking antibiotics, nose and ear drops. Put flea powder on my cat that went up my nose and caused a metal blood taste in my mouth. I stopped drinking well water because of it. A couple of months after the ear infection seemed to go away.) My sense of taste sent me to the doctor to begin with. If I ate certain foods my body felt sweat through my veins, burning almost. So I went off sugar thinking that was it. I had my blood tested and they said I was on the border of having thyroid. I took the synthroid medicine prescribed and had a really bad reaction, so they took me off of them. I haven't had any medication for 1 month and a half, but now my taste went from sugary to bitter. Like maybe I had ate too much cheese or something. Sometimes it feels like I have a lump of cream cheese in my stomach.  I am waiting to go to a specialist about my thyroid, but I have my doubts about it. I think I might have a bacteria infection throughout my body. I did notice a bump on the roof of my mouth on the right side. Is this normal? Can someone please tell me what is going on? I have always been a worry wart, but I am not tired, I have a little difficulty going to sleep, and I lost 7 pounds since June.

Hallucinations In ICU After Sepsis And Pneumonia

A couple of years ago, I went into hospital for a routine operation on my tongue.  After the procedure my tongue was very swollen, so they decided to put me back to sleep until the swelling went down.  Unfortunately I then contracted sepsis and pneumonia, was on life support for a week or so.  It took me a long time to recover physically and mentally from this experience.  I had the most horrendous hallucinations whilst in ICU.  I felt like I had been buried alive, embalmed, some of the nurses were from hell and some were from heaven and they were both trying to take me.  Even though this was a long time ago now, I still remember it like it was yesterday.   Has anyone else had similar experiences?

Allergies :: Hives From Medication (Levaquin For Pneumonia)

A little over 3 weeks ago I was treated intravenously with Levaquin for pneumonia. About 20 minutes into the drip I started to get large hives! This has been going on for over 3 weeks now. The hives are not nearly as bad as they were but I'm still getting them. I was taking benadryl at first but was then switched to Allegra. I stopped taking it 2 days ago to see if the hives have subsided. For the most part they are not as bad but now anytime my skin gets warm I have a breakout. Needless to say I'm not getting much sleep bc I keep waking up to hives and have to sleep in a cool room so I don't get too hot. Very frustrating!! Anyone ever have this happen? How long did it take for the hives to go away?

Dangerous To Take Clarithromycin And Verapamil At The Same Time?

I have been prescribed Clarithromycin for a lung infection. Had to see out of hours GP because it's Sunday and a long week-end. I told him I also take Verapamil (and Candesartan) for high BP. (I'm also allergic to penicillin so he couldn't prescribe that). When I read the package insert, I note that it can be dangerous to take Clarithromycin and Verapamil at the same time.

Cannabis Addiction :: THC, The Psychoactive Chemical In Cannabis Sativa, Cause Diarrhoea

Does THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) the psychoactive chemical in cannabis sativa cause diarrhoea as well?  I have no idea if thisis the case as all I know is that every time I use Cannabis, well I have to make several urgent detours to the loo!

If not THC, then what else could be in CS that would cause diarrhoea?  (Some people claim that they experience real bad cases of the runs upon discontinuing the use of pot. Now in my case as I do NOT smoke the stuff, as there is already enough air pollution to go around, why pollute the lungs even further? Therefore I eat it in certain baked goods such as the old fashioned Alice B. Toklas brownies. (Could this be the cause of diarrhoea)?

Macrolides Antibiotics :: Clarithromycin For A Nasty Dry Cough

I was quite shocked when my gp recommended antibiotics for my hacking dry cough. I have the flu too. I started taking Clarithromycin yesterday morning. So far I have taken 3 tablets, so far so good! My violent cough which was totally debilitating and exhausting (non-stop) and causing me nearly to throw up has slightly improved, thanks definitely to the antibiotics I'm taking. I came here to check out other's opinions on taking this antibiotic. I don't like taking any tablets and what I read on this site nearly put me off starting the course. But luckily, I read a couple of good reviews on here so decided to bite the bullet. So far, I'm glad to have taken three tablets as already I'm starting to come back to life. Still got a fairly raging cough but have found it easier to cope and control. The only noticeable side-effects so far have been with a tummy ache, but otherwise it's all positive! If symptoms persist or side effects increase, I will come back and report!
