Im currently on erythromycin (apo-erythro, 250 mg pills twice a day). The prescription sheet that came with the pills (from the pharmacy) says it is best to be taken without food, or 1 before/2 hours after a meal. But when I look on the internet, only some sites say that it is best taken without food, while others say it doesnt matter. It is kind of inconvenient to work out 2 times I need to take it without food, so is this type of erythromycin ok to be taken with food (or near a meal or such), if anyone knows? Thank you!

Re: Erythromycin

GirlyGirl.. I would say DISCONTINUE! After recently seeing on the news that erythromycin can cause heart ailements, I told EVERYONE I know who took it to STOP! Please, go to google and click the news tab- and in there type erythromycin.. You'll see many articles dated September 8th. Good Luck to you!
