i have a competition on thursday and i had colds and a sore throat. currently i am taking zithromax, an antibiotic which inhibits protein synthesis that is responsible for fast muscle recovery. accdg to this link will i have time to recover by thursday? its monday here and the antibiotics just ended this morning. this is freaking me out. help please what should i do? will my muscles have a hard time to recover during the competition? sorry if i posted twice, i just had to. i really wanna swim my best in this competition! is still possible for me to do so?

Take a deep breath. There's not a lot you can do to speed the recovery process or to get the zithromax out of your system. What you can control is your diet, your sleep, and your attitude in the next few days. Make sure you get plenty of rest and maybe add some yoghurt or acidophilus to your diet to restore the good bacteria that was lost to the antibiotics. Make sure you get adequate fluids this week and throughout the competition, and make sure you're eating nutritious foods. Take the approach that your body can do only what it can do, and if you swim reasonably well at the meet, take that as a victory considering the fact that you weren't feeling 100% in the ramp-up.

but will the zithromax really affect my performance and weaken my swim?

I don't think anyone can answer that one. It will either be in your system or not, and there's not much you can do about that. Consider for a moment: If you hadn't taken the Zithromax, you might be REALLY sick now and how would that affect your performance? So put your head in gear in the next few days and visualize doing your best in your races, then do what you can to control the things you have control over.

Drugs + any physical activity = Poor performance and heart problems.
I answered your other post but here's what happens to your heart, Zithromax gets absorbed from your stomach and passes through your intestines and goes into your blood. Your heart pumps the blood around and it fights the places of infection. whats the problem? zithromax is in your heart. Remember to drink a lot of water, half the drugs are man made and therefore aren't perfect so be careful, i'd think if i was in your situation resting, fluids + electrolytes, and loads of hot liquid would help you. again watch out for your heart, and i think you'll be fine if you wash your system. Remember to get pure water and not filtered since they will be bad for your kidneys. again Good luck, and Gecmis Olsun (get well soon)
