Has anyone had clarithromycin?

How strong/good is it for chest infections

I am not terrifically confident tbh

Well it's irrelevant now

Papworth have over-ruled & we are now having co-amoxyclav

Never mind

Hope you're better soon Katy, or is it for dh (do I remember your dh has bad chest?)
Co-amoxy is quite good, I find it pretty level with clarithro tbh, have both frequently.

DH. I think it might be the dose size - I am picking up at 5:30...hang on I'm late

dd had it for 'pneumonia like symptoms'. It worked really quickly, she was better within 24 hours of starting it. Hope you feel better soon.

500/125 coamoxyclav vs 250 clarithromyin

Oh I don't know

Both work well. Some chest infections are more sensitive to one or the other but you can only very rarely know until you try and most are sensitive to both. Hope it goes well.

Well 3 tablets in & he is already better

Thanks everyone
