    Zithromax cause sulfa allergic reaction?

    I have bronchitis and was given the Zithromax Z-pak to take. I am allergic to sulfa though and was wondering if I might be allergic to this too. Please help! I want to start antibotics today but not if I am going to have an allergic reaction. Thank you!

    I don't think it is a Sulfa drug, but that allergy is very dangerous, so check with your doctor if you have any doubts

    Zithromax is not a sulfa drug; it is a macrolide antibiotic.

    If you have any doubts about drugs, ask the pharmacist. They have more extensive training in drug interactions & side effects than the doctors - it is what they are there for.
