    Call your doctor now or seek immediate medical care if:

    • You develop double vision.
    • You have a fever and stiff neck.
    • Clear, watery fluid drains from your nose.
    • You feel dizzy or lightheaded.
    • You have new eye pain or changes in your vision, such as blurring.
    • You have new ear pain, ringing in your ears, or trouble hearing.
    • You are confused, irritable, or not acting normally.
    • You have a hard time standing, walking, or talking.
    • You have new mouth or tooth pain, or you have trouble chewing.
