Z-Pak Strep Throat ‘Cure’ Can Cause Severe Scarring or Even Death

“Regina” (not a real person) was the type of person who never caught a cold. She felt invincible, even through the harshest of winters, so when she developed a stubborn sore throat and fever in the spring, she was utterly perplexed.

Eventually, at the prompting of her husband, Regina visited her doctor. He diagnosed Regina with strep throat and prescribed Z-Pak, a pill that contained the drug azithromycin, a common antibiotic used to treat the disease.

After just a few days, however, Regina felt even worse. Her fever and sore throat intensified, though she had been warned that the drugs might have some unpleasant side effects before they started working. It wasn’t until she developed painful sores in her mouth and a burning rash on her face that her husband rushed her to the hospital.

This time, her diagnosis was more dire – she had suffered a bad reaction to the drug and appeared to have Stevens-Johnson Syndrome, a potentially life-threatening ailment. She spent several days in the hospital as the doctors ran a battery of tests and treatments to save her life. In the end, Regina pulled through, but her battle had left both physical and mental scars.

Regina was not the only person to have a bad reaction after taking Z-Pak. She turned to an experienced attorney to file a lawsuit against the drug’s manufacturer, claiming it had caused her Stevens-Johnson Syndrome and led to her harrowing ordeal.

As her medical bills continued to pile up, her lawyer suggested she contact USClaims to help her meet her needs during this difficult time.
