MADISON — A recently published study has indicated that popular antibioitic Zithromax has the potential to increase a users risk for sudden heart problems leading to death, according to WKOW.
At its peak, a reported 55.3 million prescriptions for Zithromax were filed per year. Dr. David Shearer explained why the drug is so frequently prescribed, saying:
“Azithromycin is convenient because you don’t have to take it for as long. The typical course is five days compared to ten or 14 days with Amoxicillin.”
While the drug may be more fast acting than its competition, a Vanderbilt University-led study over 14 years indicated that “patients prone to heart problems were 2.5 times more likely to die from cardiovascular causes while taking Z-Pak than those on Amoxicillin.”
However, the study also indicated that otherwise healthy patients should still turn to Zithromax as an antibiotic option.
Dr. Shearer went on to say that the study won’t prevent medical professionals from prescribing the antibiotic.
Bobbi Chandler, a Zithromax consumer, later explained her own experience and opinion regarding Zithromax:
“It worked fine for us (when referring to her families use), and I think if it were recommended by the doctor as a safe choice, I would go that route.”
