Best gluten-free antibiotic instead of Z pack for Bronchitis?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello there,

I’m not sure if I am recovering from Covid 19 just yet as test results aren’t back, but Dr. did diagnose me with acute bronchitis. She prescribed a Zpack which I know to be gluten-free. However, I’m super scared of the potential side effects— as I’m having some lower GI symptoms already. Does anyone have experience with zpacks or alternate antibiotic therapies???

I am sorry you are ill.  It looks like it is gluten free:

Not sure about the generic.  Your pharmacist (or you) can look it up on pillbox.

it sounds like GI upset is common with this drug.  Consider a good probiotic (gluten-free) or add some fermented foods into your diet to offset this broad spectrum antibiotic.
