If yes, did you notice anything strange going on with your heart?

I read that these two could have an effect on the heart, but didn't know if that was frequent or rare.

My LLMD has me on both. Just wanted to see how common this was. I cannot switch to zith; my stomach won't tolerate it. I'd like to stay on the biaxin, but don't want to cause heart problems.

Thanks
V

I was on them together for about a month. I didn't notice anything happening with my heart.

I am not sure if I misunderstood my LLMD or he told me to take them both, but the next month he told me to stop the Biaxin because of the possible heart problems.

jk,

I noticed you are from TX. Do you see Dr F in LA? I'm hoping he didn't just overlook this potential reaction.
