I had a sore throat which converted to a violent cough. Consulted a doc and was diagnosed with acute bronchitis and was prescribed Clarithromycin twice a day for 5 days.
When I take the medicine, I feel slight shivers in my hands, thumping heart and slight weakness. Doesn't hinder my daily antivirus but wanted to know if this is expected.
Am not taking any other medicines. Normal diet.
My cough has gotten better, though.

Gargle with warm salt water. gargling several times a day
Clarithromycin does not have this kind of side effects that u mention. it may be due to other reasons like u may have fever with acute bronchitis so shivering n feeling weak due to poor intake.
