I have been on antibiotics since Monday and the medication is getting rid of the horrible cough that I have had. The first day after starting the medication I felt bloated and nauseous. Yesterday I was still a bit bloated, didn't have the nausea but some stomach discomfort. Today I have been light headed, dizzy and no energy at all. I searched the drug (biaxin)online and found that many people have had some horror stories with this antibiotic,and serious side effects. So both Scott and I agreed that I shouldn't take this antibiotic anymore. I just flushed the remaining pills(two days worth) and tomorrow will have to go to the doctor again to get a different antibiotic. Scott was prescribed amoxicillin, and I'm hoping the doctor could put me on that.(I've never had side effects with this antibiotic). A couple of hours ago I was feeling very dizzy and disoriented,but am starting to feel not so bad.
I'm just eating an apple...what's that saying "an apple a day keeps the doctor away!"....I'm not worried about the doctor so much, just these damn side effects!!!
Just had to vent!
