Zithromax torsades de pointes lawsuits are being filed for consumers who took this dangerous medication. Zithromax (Z-pack, Zmax, and Azithromycin), is an antibiotic used to treat a variety of bacterial infections.
There have been increasing complaints about Zithromax causing torsades de pointes. It is a macrolide antibiotic and work by preventing the bacteria from making protein that it needs to grow and divide.
Zithromax can cause or increase the risk of torsades de pointes, which means “twists of the points”, and is given that name because of what doctors see on an ECG monitor in people with the condition. The two lower chambers of the heart that pump blood to the lungs and the rest of the body beat very fast. When they beat very fast, there is not time for them to fill up with blood, so less blood gets out to tissues like the brain. When the brain is deprived of oxygen, this can lead to faint. This condition can lead to a potentially fatal arrhythmia called ventricular fibrillation where the lower chambers do not beat properly. People with heart problems who take Zithromax increased their risk of developing torsades de pointes.
