FDA Warning – A health warning on an often prescribed anti-biotic.

 

A Z-Pak can cause a potentially fatal irregular heart beat. The drug is commonly used to treat sinus infections and bronchitis.

 

While the number of deaths among at-risk patients is low, a recent study found it is two and half times higher than normal. In 2011, doctors wrote more than 50 million prescriptions for the Z-Pak.
