I hope you can help me I have been given

Patient : I hope you can help me. I have been given clarithromycin for a what might be an ear infection. I suffer with eczema in my ear but it's become a little swollen and painful. Last time they gave me antibiotic drops it made it worse. My concern is, I have just read articles saying clarithromycin causes heart attacks? It states 76% more likely to have one than other antibiotics? Now I'm very nervous about taking it. I'm 37 years old using only nrt drugs
Symptoms:  Ear ache, slightly swollen canal
