Antibiotic choices work much better when the bacteria or other susceptible germ is known with certainty, or with medical experience. ...Read more

Despite this, spreading to the brain is not common. Best of luck! ...Read more

Probably, but...: Without looking, I'm sure headache is listed as a side effect (because it is for most meds). But, chances are pretty good that the infection you have that the med is meant to treat can also cause headaches (e.g., ear infections, sinus infections, etc.). So my advice is, if its not too severe, and since the course of this med is usually pretty short, I would finish it. Tylenol (acetaminophen) in the meantime. ...Read more
