  • could a z pac make you flare?

    I recently was ill (sore throat, cough, etc) and was prescribed Nasonex, a steroid shot, and a zpac (concentrated antibiotics) and went into a flare the day after starting the z pac. Anyone else had this problem??

    I just got over bronchitis, took z pak, cough meds and a steroid shot, I was thinking it was the cough meds that made me hurt maybe it was the antibiotic???

      I have taken a z pack twice this winter and my bladder was fine, but at the time my bladder was the best it has been in a long time, so maybe if it was in worse shape it may have bothered my bladder I don't know.

      My are with you all. May you all find a way to peace and joy in your lives.

        when i take a z pac i do flare only because i get yeast infections which makes my VV and IC worse.. Have you been checked for one? Antibiotics kill all bacteria--the good and bad so yeast can thrive in those conditions.
