Dysbacteriosis due to Zpack use...
I am sorry for the situation you are in!
You are saying to be suffering of gas and bloating after completed Zpack for sinusitis
Please bare in mind that Zpack is the trade name for the generic Azithromycin
, which is an antibiotic. Usually, the use of antibiotics is associated with broken balance of intestinal flora (dysbacteriosis), which is clinically shown by intestinal problems.
In your case, such problems are shown with stomach pressure with gas and bloating, which is indicative for dysbacteriosis caused by Zpack.
I advise to:
- take protonix
40 mg for 1 month (as gastritis
might also be aggravated due to antibiotic use)
- take OTC probiotics to optimize intestinal flora
- take simethicone
- increase water intake
- avoid chilly/oily foods
If no improvement within a week, should consult with GI specialist for further evaluation!
Wish fast recovery!
