Is it possible to overdose on azithromycin ?

Sure can...: Overdose just really means it is taken more than the maximal recommended dosage of any medication. How severe an adverse reaction to an overdose depends on the type of medication and amount taken. Unfortunately, even when taken in normal recommended dosage, Azithromycin has been associated with significantly increased cardiovascular deaths. Please consult doc if u are concerned. Good luck.
