Can I Take Z Pak With Aspirin
Yes, but why?: Azithromycin is used to treat bacterial infections and Diflucan (fluconazole) is used to treat fungal/yeast infections. So, if you have both condition and need both meds, you can use them. If not having both types of infections, no need to use both medicines. If you have additional concern, please consult the prescribing physician/nurse. Good luck. ...Read more

Possible interaction: "Using azithromycin together with ondansetron can increase the risk of an irregular heart rhythm that may be serious and potentially life-threatening, although it is a relatively rare side effect.

Hi! So I have a prescription for diazepam (I also take prosac), and I finished a z pak a week and a half ago — am I ok to take the valium at this poin?
Better not: Valium and prozac interact, would cause CNS depression and serious side effects with increased valium levels in blood, so you may want to use an alternative or reduce the valium dose, ask your doctor/prescriber. The azithromycin is gone out of your system by now, so don't want worry about it, best wishes ...Read more
What else can I take over the counter to get some relief from bronchitis, I got mucinex and doctor prescribed me z pak what else taking lexapro (escitalopram) too?
I understand your desire to get relief from Bronchitis possibly due to symptoms of cough, sputum, chest discomfort, shortness of breath, or fever which have been uncomfortable.
Do not take Lexapro (escitalopram) as it is NOT for Bronchitis.
As Z Pak has not helped at this time, please go to Urgent Care.

Yes: The symptoms will improve whether you take any medication. The considerable complications that can occur after strep can occur if you do not complete your medication. At one dose a day I would think it is not too difficult to complete the rx. Trying to "save some" for next time can put you at risk. ...Read more
Azithromycin: In most cases a Z-pak will cure ear infections (I believe the cure rate is around 92%). Follow-up with your prescribing physician at the end of treatment if you are still having significant symptoms. ...Read more
I was just prescribed Z Pak for reoccurring Strep Throat. Is it safe for me to take an Aleve (naproxen) D while taking the Z Pak?
YES.: Assuming you aren't allergic to Aleve (Naproxen) or similar NSAID medications like Motrin (Iburofen) or aspirin, you can take it with ZPack. You may not need the D part of the Aleve D. It is a nasal decongestant that you might not need and has side effects like jitteriness and sleep disturbance. ...Read more
I'm 39 weeks pregnant and was prescribed a z-pak for a deep cough and scratchy throat. Is it safe to take and how will it affect the baby?
Ask prescribing doc: Sorry, I don't mean to be rude but it seems that it would be difficult to miss your pregnant condition, such that prescribing physician should have discussed possible effects of Azithromycin (zpak) on you & your fetus. Prior to accepting said prescription would also have been the best time to ask questions re this medication. As it stands, it's considered pregnancy category b. http://goo.gl/uejyo. ...Read more
It's very concerning: That you are asking this question. Are you having thoughts about killing yourself? Although 800mg of Aspirin is not likley to kill you, the fact that you are inquiring & including your body weight is suggestive that there is a problem here. If you have suicide plan that you may carry out, please be seen at the nearest emergency room now. Have a friend or relative drive you or call 911 for help. >. ...Read more
Yes, but depends: The issue is why you may need to thin your blood. Aspirin is a good, relatively safe, inexpensive antiplatelet agent. Sometimes, though, antiplatelet activity is not adequate "blood thinning", e.g., for phlebitis or artificial heart valve protection (especially mitral valve), or an acute stroke. For long term use, or less critical circumstances, Aspirin in varying doses may be adequate. ...Read more
Would encourage you : To take it at a time that will work well for you & a time you will be able to remember. For instance, I take my pills right before breakfast each day. Try to take it the same time every day. ...Read more
What is your risk: It depends upon your overall cardiac risk. If you have little in the way of risk factors, and are 46 years old, then you may not need Aspirin at all. If you have vascular disease, diabetes or other risk factors, you may need to take 81 – 325 mg a day to reduce future risk of events. ...Read more
Reason for use?: It depends on why you are taking it. If it is for cardioprotection then I am not aware of any proven alternatives. ...Read more
No...: Unless you have one of possible side effects of gastric bleeding however in low daily dose, most people tolerate the medication. Take it with food to avoid stomach upset. Consult with your doctor if still unsure. ...Read more
Same time daily: No time issue unless it bothers stomach, then take with food. ...Read more
No interaction: There isn't an interaction of aspirin and vicodin. Vicodin is a combination of a narcotic (hydrocodone) and tylenol (acetaminophen). If you're taking low dose aspirin for some reason, it shouldn't be a problem to take vicodin. But I'd question why you're taking aspirin. It's not a great pain medication. If you're using aspirin for pain regularly, it's worth consulting a doc who knows pain meds. ...Read more
