I usually don't get sick. I'll get the common cold once or twice a year, but have never been hospitilized or had anything major. I take an over the counter medicine and am good to go. But not this time.
I'm getting over pneumonia. I've never had it before and I don't recommend it. I haven't taken a deep breath in over two weeks.
I initially went to the walk in clinic where the doctor perscribed an antibiotic. While laying in bed resting, I began to read:
Possible side effects that may occur while taking this medicine include diahhrea, dizziness, headache, loss of appetite, nausea, stomach upset or vomiting. Can I just say I had all of these. And it wasn't just any headache, it was a migraine. My first. Don't recommend that either.
I continued reading: muscle weakness, breathing problems, tarry stools, numbess in arms, chest pain, dark urine, fever, chills, hallucinations, irregular heartbeat, loss of consciousness, hives, swelling of the mouth, severe sunburn, mood changes, confusion, depression, yeast infection, vision changes, unusual bruising, peeling skin, seizures, suicidal thoughts... 'This is not a complete list of all side effects that may occur.'
Oh. My. Word.
I'll be so glad when I'm off this medication!!
