I've been on Biaxin for 3 days now and the only noticeable change would be how harsh it is on my stomach. Did anyone else have this problem?

It feels like how I was on doxy. Everything I eat gives me nausea. I either feel like I'm going to throw up of poop my pants.

Is there anything that might help?

Thank you!

Hi <<<<< stefi42 >>>>>,

I cannot take Biaxin, I got really severe diarrhea from it,some folks have to try a different ABX.

I would check w/ the prescribing Doctor and see if there is an alternative. Sorry you are having this issue. Stomach and intestinal issues are so very draining.

When I first started Biaxin it was rough on the stomach. Be sure to take with food, that helps. Also, my stomach is very sensitive but the side effects subsided.

Side note: The manufacturer made a difference for me. When my insurance switched pharmacies I went from cvs to Walgreens and the Walgreens Biaxin was intolerable so I found the same manufacturer from a different pharmacy.

Ill since 1998
DX 2005
