Eli (3 years ago):
Experienced major anxiety while on penicillin. I got to the point where I called my counselor because I was frustrated as to WHY my nerves/anxiety were at the point that they were. This is one I will not be taking again. Penicillin/Ibuprofen mix clearly are not a good mix for me. It caused chest pain also.
