Do people take diflucan (fluconazole) and azithromycn (the z-pak) at the same time?

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

Prescribed Z-pak and vomited 30 min after taking first dose. Doctor said to take 2nd dose tomorrow and see how I feel. Is it bad that I lost 1st dose?

Depends: If you have a life threatening susceptible bacterial infection then it is bad. If you are doing fine then it is probably not a big deal. Azithromycin lasts a long time in your system and you probably absorbed a fair amount of the dose if you kept it down 30 minutes. ...Read more

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?

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?

Bronchitis: 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.

I've got strep throat and started z-pak today. Do I have to take the entire pack?

I've got strep throat and started z-pak today. Do I have to take the entire pack?

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

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?

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

Could you tell me if I weigh 140 and take 4 200 mg aspirins will I die?

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

Can I take 2 aspirins a day to thin my blood?

Dr. Irv Loh Dr. Loh
2 doctors agreed:
Can I take 2 aspirins a day to thin my blood?

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

Can I take aspirin when Vicodin?

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
