The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued a warning to doctors and patients taking the drug, Zithromax®, due to a potential Drug Injury associated with the medication.
According to News Channel 5, the drug, also known as Z-Pack, is a popular antibiotic used in the treatment of numerous common bacterial infections. A recent study conducted at Vanderbilt University showed taking the medication could pose several serious health risks though.
Their data concluded those taking Zithromax® faced an elevated risk of suffering from abnormal heart rhythms that could prove to be fatal. The study also found there was an increased risk of death caused by heart disease within the first five days of taking the drug.
Patients who have low Potassium or Magnesium levels in their blood are at an especially high risk of suffering the side effects of Zithromax®. Individuals who have slower than average heart rates or who already suffer from irregular heart rhythms are also at a greater than normal risk of being negatively affected by the drug.
Anyone who is considering taking the medication should first consult with their physician about the risks involved with taking Zithromax®.
