In brief: Report to doctor...

You're getting the top-gun antibiotics for pyelonephritis.
It may cause nausea and vomiting in 1.5 - 4% of users. To prove drug side effects, recurrent use proves the concern with high alert and watch is the must. In your scenario, do you feel dizzy on standing? If so, check blood pressure and pulse, and watch with care. In doubt, see doctor for assessment. Best wish...
