Megan N. Brown, PharmD, RPh -

Before antibiotics were discovered, infections like pneumonia and tuberculosis were the leading causes of death in the US. Fortunately, we now have antibiotics to treat these diseases—we just have to remember to use them safely. After all, these infection-fighting medications can pose serious risks to you and thousands of other people who rely on antibiotics every day.

Life-threatening side effects and antibiotic resistance—when bacteria are no longer sensitive to an antibiotic—are concerns when it comes to antibiotic safety. See More

Dr. Sharon Orrange
Dr. Sharon Orrange -

The Z-Pack (Zithromax, azithromycin) is an antibiotic medication that unfairly gets a bad rap. True, it’s often incorrectly prescribed for sinus infections caused by viruses, which don’t respond to antibiotics. But Z-Packs offer many benefits we shouldn’t forget. Here are some of reasons why they’re still worth considering.

First, Z-Packs are easy to use and they’re cheap. They come as a pack of five pills, which you take daily over the course of five days, and they’re highly effective. See More

Infants are exposed to germs that their newly developing immune system often cannot fight off on its own. In order to treat those nasty infections, many pediatricians will prescribe your child an oral antibiotic. But are these medications safe?

Although these antibiotics have their benefits, there may also be some downsides to their usage. Recently, results posted in The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) show that using acid-suppressive medications and antibiotics in infants could increase the risk of potential allergies later in childhood.

Dr. Sharon Orrange
Dr. Sharon Orrange -

“Can I get a Z-Pak?” is a question asked every day by our patients struggling with an upper respiratory infection. Trust me, I want to help you get better, but that’s not always the way to do it.

What is the Z-Pak used to treat?

The Z-Pak (Zithromax), is a five-day course of the antibiotic, azithromycin. It’s used to treat certain bacterial infections, including some sinus infections and upper respiratory tract infections (URIs) that lead to headaches, congestion, and runny noses. See More

Which Antibiotics Are Less Likely to Cause Diarrhea?

Dr. Sharon Orrange
Dr. Sharon Orrange -

Antibiotic-associated diarrhea and colitis is affecting more of you, given the widespread use of antibiotics. Clostridium difficile (C. diff) is the organism that causes antibiotic-associated colitis; this happens because the bacteria is allowed to overgrow in the intestine when the normal intestinal flora is changed due to antibiotics. C. diff can release toxins that bind to receptors on intestinal epithelial cells causing inflammation (colitis) and diarrhea. See More

These Prescriptions May Cause Ringing in the Ears

Dr. Sharon Orrange
Dr. Sharon Orrange -

Tinnitus, or ringing in the ears, is a perception of sound in one or both ears in the absence of an external source. It’s often described by patients as buzzing, ringing, or whooshing. While there is often no known cause for tinnitus, there are a handful of medications that may contribute.

Medications that are known to cause tinnitus or hearing loss are considered “ototoxic medications.” Discontinuing these medications can prevent tinnitus and hearing progression, though the ringing may not always go away. See More

Dr. Sharon Orrange
Dr. Sharon Orrange -

Antibiotic resistance is a big problem. You’ve all heard about Methicillin-Resistant Staph Aureus (MRSA) causing skin and soft tissue infections but now there is a growing group of resistant bacteria. What this means is many folks may face treatment with an intravenous antibiotic or older more toxic antibiotic to treat common infections like E. Coli urinary tract infections. This is because the bacteria have gotten smart and know how to resist penicillins, ciprofloxacin and Bactrim among others. See More

FDA Warning for Zithromax (Z-Pak)

Elizabeth Davis
Elizabeth Davis -

The FDA recently posted a safety announcement that Zithromax (azithromycin)—the super-popular Z-Pak antibiotic—can cause potentially fatal irregular heart rhythms, or arrhythmias.

What does that mean for you?

If you have an existing heart condition, be aware and talk to your doctor about your options if you need an antibiotic. Other macrolide antibiotics (clarithromycin, erythromycin) and quinolone antibiotics (Cipro, Levaquin) have the same potential side effect, but there are other options out there and your doctor will best be able to weigh your risk against your need for a particular medication.
