Heart Disease Patients Face Possibly Fatal Zithromax Side Effects
By John Curran
A recent study out of Denmark indicates that the overwhelming majority of people who take the popular antibiotic Zithromax will not face heart arrhythmia side effects, a condition that can have fatal consequences. However the statistics paint a picture that should have people with heart disease discussing the medication with their doctors.
The scientists obtained records for more than one million people who took the azithromycin-based medication as well as those that took the generic antibiotic penicillin. They found that the numbers matched up reasonably well, with 16 people dying while on the generic and 17 people dying either from Zithromax side effects or other causes.

At Least 1,000 Vaginal Mesh Victims Reported in U.S.
By Jessica Tyner
Vaginal sling implants are linked to a slew of painful and serious side effects, and it’s estimated that there are at least 1,000 victims of vaginal mesh injuries in the U.S. alone. Oftentimes, vaginal mesh implants are used to treat incontinence or pelvic organ prolapse (POP), but they can come with devastating side effects. The surgical mesh has a tendency to “chew through” the flesh and become embedded in the vaginal lining, other surrounding soft tissues and even organs. The multiple surgeries to correct these issues are painful and expensive.
It’s been five years since the FDA issued a warning about the potential complications caused by vaginal mesh implants, but the makers of these devices continue to churn out their products. Vaginal mesh victims claim they weren’t warned about the risks, neither by their doctors or the manufacturer.
