Do Antibiotics Make You Tired
After typhoid treatment of 7 days I am still feeling chill and tiredness some times (but no fever), should I continue with the antibiotic (from asia)?
Accurate diagnosis?: The question is how was typhoid diagnosed? If by culture, then maybe it is resistant to the antibiotic prescribed. Another possibility is that you're getting better slowly (a temperature chart would be helpful). If no culture was done or the culture was negative, then maybe it's not typhoid.
Antibiotics: Fatigue can be caused by many factors, and if you are wondering if the antibiotics caused the fatigue it is possible. Underlying infection can also cause fatigue, as can anemia, thyroid disease, cardiac problems, and many other things. To narrow down the diagnosis it is worth seeing your primary care doctor.
Diagnosed bronchitis 2wks ago (sick for 2mnths), had 2 rounds antibiotics. How long till I feel better? Get tired very easy still!
Depends: This is a problem that necessitates a face-to-face meeting with your doctor. This will allow him/her to examine you, ask specific questions. And possibly order tests to find out what's wrong and what to do to help you.
I am on an antibiotic for a sinuse infection and I find I feel tired. Should I continue taking it?
Do't stop.: If you have a real bacterial infection of course you should continue. Notify your doc of the symptoms you are having but don't stop unless they tell you to do so. Your tiredness may be coming from the underlying infection.
Yes, it can happen: I've certainly experienced it and so have my patients. I think it often is masked by the fatigue symptoms of the condition for which it is prescribed. Also, I think the new exotic super strong antibiotics might be even more likely to do this than the old penicillin. Some innocent bacteria, etc. Get killed by the drug like unintended war casualties and can imbalance your systems a bit. Get well!See 1 more doctor answer

About three weeks ago I was on antibiotics for bronchitis. Or phneumonia. I still have a violent cough am extremely tired and now have lime greephlegm?
Still infected: The history of continuing cough with the discolored phlegm makes me concerned that you may be only partially treated. I would check with your doctor and consider another course of antibiotics and would choose a different class of antibiotic if in fact another course is to be prescribed as you may have a resistant organism to the first one used.
