Patient :I got bronchitis and my doctor gave me an antibiotic called azithromycin and it's my first time trying the pill and when I first started it I feel nauseated. So is it natural to be nauseated or do I need to be on another antibiotic
Thanks for your query.
Azithromycin can cause nausea as a common symptom. If this is short-lived and get OK on its own by taking a PPI like Pantoprazole, you may please continue the same medicines.
but if the symptoms persist, you have to continue PPI, an antacid ad soft bland diet and request your Doctor for another stomach friendly antibiotic.
