Discussions that mention erythromycin

Allergies board


I was wondering if antibiotics help allergies in anyways? i've had a number of symptoms for a few years now and the only time they have completelty gone is when i have taken erythromycin for other reasons. My symptoms are range from stomach problems to blocked nose, Catarhh at the back of the throat constantly and Major fatigue/weakness/tiredness.
I'm trying to pinpoint my illness, so i can try to get better and this is one of the areas that i'm now looking.

Any help at all would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks :) :)

Hi there.
I too was on a long-term course of erythromycin in which i lived normally for about 2 years. I then stopped taking them and my allergies have absolutely sky-rocketed out-of-control.
I've made a seperate post of my own if you want the full story but as far as all of the specialists tell me the erythromycin only maskes the allergies, rather than actually helping you at all.
Hope this was helpful!
