Have heard you get sick while first taking fluoxetine. I'm too scared to take my meds. What am I supposed to do if I throw up the medicine if sick?
Take the medicine: Fear of a potential side effect shouldn't stop you from taking the medication in the first place.

Sleep: Chlorpheniramine is a very effective anti allergic medication. If you take 20 of the standard 4 mg yellow tablets, you certainly will beat back allergy and you will probably have a big dose of the major side effect which is sleepiness.
