  • From this study (2 months ago):

  • I had a cough and fever, went to the doctor and they tested me for influenza type a and b, the result was negative. My fever was 101.8. The doctor prescribe Tamiflu because I have the flu like symptoms a little over 24hrs. I took the medication and my fever was gone. I returned to the doctor because I had a cough and he said I have a respiratory infection. He prescribe Mucinex and azithromycin. I felt lightheaded a few days on these medications and return to the doctor who told me to stop taking the Mucinex DM. I just finished taking my antibiotic which was the 5 days treatment and still feeling Lightheaded. Not sure what is causing this feeling. Keep in mind I was done with the Tamiflu the day before I started to take the antibiotic. Please Help
