Yes, you can take erythromycin without any problems. They are markedly different drugs that work in a different way. Although they cover similar organisms.

Megan Marie,
If you are found to be allergic to penicillin, it is usual to be prescribed the erythromycin family of antibiotics instead. Macrolide antibiotics are the group of drugs in which Erythromycin is included. Macrolide antibiotics slow the growth of, or sometimes kill, sensitive bacteria by reducing the production of important proteins needed by the bacteria to survive. Erythromycin is used to treat many different types of infections caused by bacteria. It is also used to prevent bacterial endocarditis and attacks of rheumatic fever. This medication is not expected to be harmful to an unborn baby. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant during treatment. Erythromycin can pass into breast milk and may harm a nursing baby. Erythromycin and its cousins don't have anything like the allergy problems we see with the penicillins and cephalosporins, although there are some people who have reactions to it. The biggest problem with these medicines is that they can irritate the stomach. Bleeding stomach ulcers have been reported after taking erythromycin; this irritation seems to happen most often when someone tries to take the medicine on an empty stomach. Always take erythromycin with food or milk.


It is extremely important to obtain an accurate diagnosis before trying to find a cure. Many diseases and conditions share common symptoms.
