Wait: How did it start and what did start first? May last for few days If it is viral infection. You need supportive treatment to control your symptoms and then start your diet from liquid to advance as tolerated. Why z pack was tried?

Treatment failure: Symptoms of an illness that will respond to a particular antibiotic usually start to improve within 3-4 days. Although Zithromax stays in your system for a few more days after your last dose, most physicians would consider this a treatment failure and either re-diagnose or treat with something else.

Z-PAK DURATION: One of the big advantages of azithromycin (Zithromax) is that after taking it for 5 days, 5 additional days worth of drug gets stored inside your body's cells and gets released into your bloodstream over the next 5 days so you get 10 days of drug by only taking it for 5 days.The disadvantage of this is the situation you find yourself in.Ask your doctor for some Zofran or Compazine (prochlorperazine).This should help
