azithromycin ↔ ondansetron
Applies to: azithromycin, Zofran (ondansetron)

MONITOR: Theoretically, concurrent use of two or more drugs that can cause QT interval prolongation may result in additive effects and increased risk of ventricular arrhythmias including torsade de pointes and sudden death. The risk of an individual agent or a combination of these agents causing ventricular arrhythmia in association with QT prolongation is largely unpredictable but may be increased by certain underlying risk factors such as congenital long QT syndrome, cardiac disease, and electrolyte disturbances (e.g., hypokalemia, hypomagnesemia). In addition, the extent of drug-induced QT prolongation is dependent on the particular drug(s) involved and dosage(s) of the drug(s).

MANAGEMENT: Caution and clinical monitoring are recommended if multiple agents associated with QT interval prolongation are prescribed together. Patients should be advised to seek medical attention if they experience symptoms that could indicate the occurrence of torsades de pointes such as dizziness, palpitations, or syncope.

CALL YOUR Doctor and let him know you are having nausea with the Azithromycin. Let the doctor prescribe something for nausea or maybe change from Azithromycin to some other antibiotic.

So the answer is NO they are not ok to take together. Do you have any dramamine on hand?

How long does azithromycin stay in your system?

Here's what I have learned so far... after ONE 500 mg dose, the half-life is 11-14 hours. (source: Davis's Drug Guide) This means it would be out of your system in 3-4 days after ONE dose. After the full course of therapy, the half life is 68 hours because it has built up in your system. So after the full course, it would be in your system for 10 days to 14 days. Usually you figure 5 half-lives for the drug to be gone... so 5x68 divided by 24 hours will give you a good idea of how many days it's going to be hanging around.

Azithromycin dosage question?

The first dose of azithromycin is 500 mg. Since the pills are 250 mg each then you take 2 pills on the first day (or night if that is when you are starting). The subsequent doses are 250 mg a day so you take 1 pill the next day and keep taking 1 pill a day until the prescription is finished (usually 5 days). If you have more specific questions ask your doctor.

Rocephin and Azithromycin?

You did fine. Zithromax (azithromycin) has an extremely long half-life, 68 hours. The half-life of any drug is how long it takes for half the drug to be eliminated from the body. So, after 68 hours 50% of a dose has been excreted. That leaves the other 50%. Then in another 68 hours, 50% of that 50% is eliminated and that leaves 25%. In another 68 hours, half of the 25% is gone, that leaves 12.5%, and so on until you have 3.125% left and this isn't very effective. By the time you reach 1.6%, the azithromycin (not capitalized, it's a generic name) is virtually all gone. Consider how long 68 hours is -- nearly 3 days. Now consider how many 68-hour increments there are for azithromycin. It made no difference that you took the antibiotics today and not tomorrow. Today was fine. The Rocephin injection was so that you got an antibiotic on board right away, and because it wasn't taken by mouth, it wasn't metabolized by the liver and you didn't lose any of it to the "first-pass effect." You got 100% of the Rocephin and that was the point. You got about 38-40% of the azithromycin and the rest was lost. But what you got, will stay with you for 17 days.

How long does azihromycin stay in your system?

It can remain in your body for 3 days, and can have action up to a week after you take the last dose. I would wait a few more days with drinking and for birth control you should probably use a back up method until you start your next pack or have your next cycle.
