Zithromax Side Effects & Complications
Recent studies have linked Zithromax, or Z-Pak, to serious medical conditions.
Minor side effects associated with Zithromax include, diarrhea, stomach pain, dizziness, nervous feelings, or mild rashes.
A more serious concern, however, is the increased risk of QT prolongation, which is the lengthening of the heart’s electrical cycle. This risk is increased for people with pre-existing heart conditions such as arrhythmia. Although the risk is small, these dangers associated with Zithromax can be life threatening. In rare cases, patients have died from cardiac arrest caused by Z-Pak.
Zithromax & Cardiac Arrhythmia
Zithromax can cause or increase the risk of cardiac arrhythmia. The medication can damage the electrical system responsible for controlling the beating of the heart. This can prevent the heart from beating properly, which leads to cardiac arrhythmia. Individuals who already have heart conditions are at a greater risk of developing this complication from taking Zithromax than others.
Zithromax & Torsades de Pointes
Torsades de Pointes is another medical condition of the heart. The name translates to “twists of the points”, due to what it resembles on an ECG monitor. In this condition, the hearts beats too quickly, depriving the brain of oxygen. Eventually, this can lead to an arrhythmia, which can be life threatening.
