Tina, Toni, and Kathy, have any of you asked your dr about a substitute med for azithromycin? I would hate to live with permanent hearing issues because that can sometimes be a result.

No I haven't. I've read the clrithrimycin (sp) is in the same family and may also be a problem.

I spoke with my pulmy doctor about it and he said " Lots of people your age ( 72 ) have hearing losses. I told him about this site and that there are several people who are on the Big 3 that have developed tinnitus and he said don't be so quick to blae the medication…. lots of people your age having hearing issues. WELL,…. lol I guess he told me !!! I'm going to discuss it with my ID this week.
