Question: Hi, my gastroenteroligist prescribed Azithromycin for my gastric parisas(?) and it seemed to help. but now I have a different insurance and the prescription would cost over &900.00 for me to take. Is there any thing else out there that would be comparable to that? They did try Augmentin(?) but it really messed with my stomach. XXXXXXX
