I was prescribed Clarithromycin for an infection whichhad produced phlegm and was making me exhausted. I had not been prescribed antibiotics for about 22 years.
The effects have been incredible. Whilst I could feel the infection shifting - from day one I felt spaced out very very tired and had trouble with cognitive thinking.
Every little task took longer to do.
I did consider on day one that I would stop taking Clarithromycin and ask my GP for a different drug,
However I decided to press on and complete the 5 day course,
I will never take this drug again - the effects have been too severe - mind altering and exhausting.
Alcohol was definitely not an option whilst taking this drug
Goodness knows what would have happened if I had had even a sniff of wine!
