Hi there, This is Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist. I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Dr Basu :

Azithromycin in rare occasions can cause heart arrhythmias or irregular heart rhythms.

Dr Basu :

In most cases, this is ok to use for 5 day course.

Dr Basu :

So, it should be ok if you do not have any heart related symptoms currently.
