Yes!: Yes! don't feel bad this is not at all uncommon. Make sure your primary care doc knows if you are on any psych medications, as they can sometimes interact with antibiotics (and be less effective). But mostly what happens is, your body feels yucky, so your brain feels yucky, too! drink lots of water, try to sit near a window and get some sunshine if not real fresh air. Call a friend, get a hug! ...Read more
