Biaxin While Pregnant
Planning a pregnancy. How long should you wait to get pregnant after being on clarithromycin? I took 2 biaxin XL pills 500 mg once daily for 10 days.
Clarithromycin: The elimination half-life of Clarithromycin was about 3 to 4 hours with 250 mg administered every 12 hours but increased to 5 to 7 hours with 500 mg administered every 8 to 12 hours.

Well...maybe...: I have not actually heard of an antibiotic directly causing a delay of a period. However, presuming that there was a significant infection (which was then treated with the biaxin) the infection and the effects may have interrupted your normal cycle. Of course a delayed period may be due to other issues. Could you be pregnant? ...Read more
