Discussions that mention erythromycin

General Health board

I'm taking Erythromycin caps and because I am very allergic to most antibiotics I am taking 1/2 of cap. Pharmacy said it was ok to break it apart & put in food. It is very bitter and the first doses didn't bother my stomach but now I am getting burning feeling. I am taking it with food. Would you stop taking it? Directions say not to take antacids with it. Thanks.
