i've been taking both twice a day with a 20mg acid reducer (prilosec) once a day.
i have no insurance, so i'm trying to use the doctor sparingly.
as he warned , the antibiotics , after 7 days are making me nauseous, dizzy, and ache with a fever.
it's been a full 24 hours since i started feeling bad, and what i'm wondering is , since i have a week to go on the meds, how long will these symtoms persist? is there a point at which i should get intouch with a doctor? if so when?
