Just wondering if anyone else has experienced this?

Posted , 4 users are following.

I am taking 60mg of fluoxatine and it has been about three months on this dose. Started to feel better about a week and a half ago. Started to feel pain coming from my back molar, so i decided to go to the hospital to get it checked out. They could not tell if it was infected but they gave me antibiotics just in case. So five days after being on the antibiotics, I finally got my tooth pulled and it was definitely infected. Was just wondering if an infection and taking antibiotics can slow down your recovery. Because it seems as though I am back at square one after all of this. Please let me know.

    Stick with it and do not panic you are not back to square one you can have a bad week but it passes...... Then a bad few days but it gets less and less. Its a hateful drug but just stick at it eventually you will be fine....

    hi angela, I had the same experience. I had to take antibiotics and it made me feel sooo tired and dizzy and my mind started to worry again. I had to stop taking the antibiotics after 6 days (supposed to take them for 10) but I just could not handle it. Hope you feel better soon!
