This is the second time I've had to google medicines. Within a few minutes I was nauseous. But I have been after I eat and take medicine for about a month. I already have shortness of breath, chest pain, dizzy, and nauseous, so I'm not even sure if I need to continue taking it.

I had a bladder infection, I took the first pill and fifteen minutes I was shaky,it has been about 3 hours now and I am so nauseated that I want to cry. I hate this medicine. No wonder the pharmacist said to me that if I started to feel sick to stop right away and call the doctor and have him prescribe another antibiotic, obviously she knew what I was in for...I just flushed all the pills down the ...
