Can I Take Azithromycin (Z Pack) If Allergic To Penicillin?
Can I take azithromycin if I'm allergic to penicillin?
Azithromycin does not contain penicillin. At least one study I read found that patients who were allergic to penicillin did not have any reaction when taking azithromycin, so you should be fine. If you have concerns about it, you should call your pharmacist to make sure.
