 1  Group B Strep and a Staph Infection Top of my stomach in extreme discomfort (never felt pain like it). Hungry, but unable to eat. Tiredness. Feeling sick F 25 7 days
500mg 4X D
 1  Campylobacter infection Felt fine for the first 2 days, however on day 3 about 20 mins after taking it I started to experience extreme stomach cramps and diarrhoea which burned. The pain gradually got worse and my blood pressure sky rocketed to 120/140 with heart rate of 140 bpm. Lying in bed, in too much pain to sleep, I went to the bathroom when I was overcome with a wave of ice cold sensations throughout my body. I honestly was terrified I was dying. Within a minute or so I was violently throwing up, around 20-30 times. I feel a little better now that I've vomited but the pain is still very intense. My family and I have been suffering with campylobacter food poisoning for the past 4 weeks. All three of us were prescribed erythromycin but I'm the only one who has side effects so far. Will not be touching them with a barge pole again. Never felt so ill in my life. F 29 7 days

 1  Infection after childbirth Constant hunger, wind pains, frequent need to empty bowels (not ideal after having a baby!), nausea, sickness even with empty stomach. Sweating, flushed face. I have had this drug before for many things and I've usually been prescribed 250mg 4 times per day. This time over been prescribed double that.. I feel absolutely dreadful. I wake to feed my newborn and sit there feeling sick then wake again half an hour after dropping off and actually go to be sick. Could really do without this. I'm going to have to stop taking it over the weekend I can't cope with this. All of this for an infection I may or may not have! And even if I do, it's potentially the wrong antibiotic for it.

 4  Severe gum infection The high satisfaction rate was because it did the job. But I am sure it nearly killed me. This might have been because it was taken alongside a week of Metronizadol. Severe nausea, headache, generally feeling very unwell. Headach/vertigo/very faint. Flushed face at times and very very tired!. On top exceptionally sore mouth. Whole thing became a nightmare. I also got very anxious; was convinced I would end up in hospital, which is unusual for me. Not sure if it was lack of sleep or being ill, but lost sense of time. It's only been a week but feels like months! But it did work better than the Metronizadol..which was meant to be the biggie. 250 F 58 5 days

 1  Perioral dermatitis Indigestion, unbearable stomach cramps, chest pain, diarrhea, fatigue, nausea, back pain The first day of taking these was fine, but on the second day after my second dose I started to feel a burning in my stomach like indigestion. A herbal tea calmed it a little but then after my third dose I felt the most painful stomach cramps ever. I was doubled up in pain all night and also had a horrible pain in my chest and back. I didn't take my last dose and the stomach pains had subsided by morning but felt like I had done ten rounds in a boxing match. Will not take these again. F 27 2 days

Now easing but not convinced it's fighting or getting rid of infection as still have sore jaw and face. F 68 5 days

 1  Wisdom tooth infection Dizziness, feeling like I can't get up, nausea, slurred speech, very very unwell I would honestly rip out my own tooth rather than take this antibiotic! I don't understand how this is able to be prescribed. I took one days worth and have genuinely never felt as ill in my life. With two children I physically can not get up at the fear of passing out!
