Zithromax warning

The FDA has issued a warning for the use of azithromycin, an antibiotic sold under the brand name Zithromax. The agency warns that the drug may cause an irregular heart rhythm, potentially fatal in nature, in people with pre-existing risk factors, including QT prolongation, low blood potassium or magnesium, a slow heart rate, and arrythmia treated with medication.
