Yes that is correct. They are interchangeable if you can’t tolerate clarithromycin, the azithromycin is the alternative. I have always been told you have to take all three – not one for a length of time and then another. (Vanderbilt in Nashville)

I feel badly for you. When I was on the on the Big 3 I was changed to the azithromycin as well. I had fewer issues with that one. Feel better. (Irene5)

If you can’t find a Tupperware Consultant you might check on Amazon. They have several large ones. Good luck.

@erawl I can only speak for myself. The answer is yes. I hope it gets better for you. Talk to your ID doctor. Perhaps, he/she can give you advice on that – maybe an alternative treatment may be better for you.

@anniepie I am so sorry because having MAC makes a person fatigued, and then adding a hypothyroid issue to that must be debilitating for you. The cholesterol issue is a tough one too because of the impact of those meds on your liver. My brother has been in the hospital with endocarditis, the effects of which are reparable with a valve replacement. He is afraid to have the surgery. I told him I was certain if there were a surgery to fix MAC there would be a line out the door for all of us to have that fix! Realizing that bit of “luck” helped him rethink that in a hurry! The MAC road is lengthy and bumpy for many of us. Sending you a gentle hug and prayers.
