Common Questions and Answers about Why do antibiotics cause nausea

antibiotics

I had my gallbladder removed 3 years ago because of severe nausea, there was a large stone there but they usually don`t cause a problem ( it`s the small stones.) Much to my dismay,the nausea continued maybe even worsened. I had developed severe allergys and attributed the nausea to the mucus draining into stomach. Meds. to dry up sinuses eventuall stopped working. I am sick to my stomach all day nearly every day. My quality of life has steadily lessened. My ENT is of no help or understanding.
I swear sometimes I wonder why I am not depressed.I do get frustrated. At this point, all I know to do is wait til I see the Hep C doctor. Hopefully you guys won't mind if I vent and gather info and support from all of you.
There are some that do cause anxiety. I was on Biaxin and amoxicillin this summer and developed an anxiety problem from them.
went to the dr yesterday, she said the lining of my stomach is inflamed and gave me pills for it, then more antibiotics for my kidney infection and referrals to get 2 ultrasounds and took my blood.
I have not had diarrhea, if anything, a bit constipated. Gosh, how do you deal with the daily nausea and abdominal pain? It is so upsetting because Christmas is closing in and my family comes home and I have to help my 90-year old mother who still insists on living alone and I have no back up. Just a fact of life and I need to be able to function not spend my days laying drown in pain. I am just one of those people that have problems with meds.
No pain and nausea is hard one.. do you drink? That can cause major problems..liver..pancrease ...nausea just has so many possibilities sadly :( that's what i've learned.
You have four threads in this forum alone over the past two weeks. Do you see a pattern here? Do you see the big picture? You are unable to accept the advice that you are receiving on MH. It is clearly not working for you. You think your problem is HIV but what it really is is anxiety, and your attempts to solve the problem are not helping it and are probably making it worse. I implore you, PLEASE see a mental health professional for your anxiety.
Your doctor can have a Gastric Empty Scan done to see how much time it takes for the food to empty from your daughters stomach. Delayed emptying can cause the early satiety and nausea. Try mashed banana's for potassium and Gatorade to help prevent dehydration. Keeping potassium levels up is very important. There are medications that can help motility of the stomach wich may help symptoms. Use caution before taking Propulsid if its prescribed (ask Dr. about recent warning).
I would think the nausea is more related to the antibiotics rather than your pain meds, as you've been on the pain meds for a while and haven't had this problem with them before. However, when your body is fighting an infection or virus, it can affect how your body reacts to medications, so there is always the possiblity that at least part of the nausea IS related to the pain meds.
And also if you are being treated with antibiotics, which doctor do you have - Neurologist, Lyme Doctor, General Practitioner? Also, is your treatment covered by your Insurance?
More recently, there are some periods of nausea along with it. I have had blood tests done and nothing abnormal showed up. Just yesterday I had a CT-scan done of the neck and head areas. The results should be in within the next few days. I just wondered if anyone else has experienced this. Sometimes it'll all go away for a few days, and then come back again. I'm wondering if it is all stress-induced, especially since it is not constant.
He used to have a ton of friends and is now down to 2. He used to play soccer and baseball and can no longer do those either. Do research on autonomic dysfunction or dysautonomia. It took us 3 years to get this diagnosis. Our GI doctor wouldn't even test my son for gastroparesis, he said it doesn't usually happen in kids, then sent us to a psychologist, he told us our son had anxiety. NOT!!
Pressure changes extremely from laying to sitting, to standing (didn't before) Low blood pressure can cause headaches and dizzies, nausea. I don't know going back tomorrow... Going on almost 8 weeks now.. getting old. let me know what you find out.
But now, for some reason I sometimes feel dizzy, lightheaded and extreme nausea, but no vomiting. I am also EXTREMELY tired when this happens. I can't do anything!! I went for a MRI scan last year(when my migraines started), and nothing was wrong. The doctor said that everything is normal, but I could be suffering from some kind of Migraine. I am taking Migril everytime I feel a Migraine coming along, but these days I am worried about the dizziness and nausea thing.
I had no illnesses that cause it, and the only med I had taken was all that Flagyl which cause PN. No hospital doc had told me this could be a side effect - just kept pumping it into me. I still can't walk (other than a little in my apt. where I can hold on to things). My car is still in parking lot as can't drive. Can't even get down extemely long hallways in wheelchair to get downstairs to lobby to get my mail or outside to dumpster.
They kept saying the high doses of antibiotics and pain meds were the cause. The surgeon never spent more than 2min with her when he would visit. He finally approved to have another dr see her for the nausea. She has lost 19 lbs in less than 2 weeks. This dr has already done bloodwork. She said there is a problem FINALLY and realizes it is not the meds. She mentioned pancreatitis, gall bladder and the possibility of stomach not emptying properly. Has anyone had such problems after surgery?
I know there's so many things that can cause nausea and it can be tricky to figure out but I'm just wondering if it's worth seeing my gastroenterologist over or just deal with it. I've had bouts of nausea since my surgery in '07 but it's always been just in the morning and light and I could deal with it. Usually, it would disappear after breakfast. I figured it was par for the course since I had part of my small intestine (about 5 inches) removed and resected.
(Sure I spelled that wrong) I do suffer from anxiety, occasional hot flashes, irritability, and occasional depression. I do get occasional migraines that are not associated with my period. Feel confusion at times. Vision gets blurred sometimes and off and on with insomnia. When it gets so sever that I have to go to the hospital the docs ask me if I am pregnant. I would tell them no so they diagnosed it as the flu. Hello, its not the flu!!! Every Doc says pregnant or flu!!! Its so aggrevating!!
I am an 18 year old female and am suffering from chronic dizziness/lightheadedness, nausea but no vomiting, trouble focusing my eyes, headaches, and sporadic pains through my torso; mostly chest and stomach. These symptoms have been going on since the middle of April this year (2007) and I've lost about 15 pounds since it started. Some days it'll be okay and other days It'll feel like I'm dying. I've been in and out of the hospital since it started, and my doctor's office knows me by name.
Why were you on Levaquin? do you have pneumonia, sinusitis, bronchitis? It should be taken 1 hour before or 2 hours after meals. None of the symptoms you are typical reactions from Levaquin. You should call your doctor. Stopping antibiotics part way through a course is not a good idea unless your doctor tells you to stop. It can cause superbugs that are resistant to antibiotics or your infection can come back.Selective bug breeding LOL....
Now, as to the cause of ulcers, the actual cause seems to be a bacteria called H pylori, or heliobacter. The cure is either to use antibiotics or you can try natural treatments such as mastic gum, DGL, and manukka honey. But because of my experience, I think stress can provide the weakened opportunity for H. pylori to move in and take over.
Any advice as to what we should do to encourage things along would be greatly appreciated. any ideas as to why this is happening would also be greatly received. Thank you.
She was concerned that my Graves diseases (hyper thyriod) could be the cause. She spoke to an endocronologist I had an appointment with in a month who said according to my lab work I didnt need PTU or tapazole (anti thyroid med) or beta blockers as I didn't appear to be hyper thyroid. The NP prescribe compazine which helped quite a bit. A thyroid scan was ordered for me which came back raging hyper thyroid. I started PTU and atenolol friday and still am feeling like ****.
The pharmacologic effects of theophyllines and beta-blockers are opposite. Nonselective and high doses of cardioselective beta-blockers may cause severe or fatal bronchospasm by opposing theophylline-induced bronchodilation. Ophthalmic beta-blockers undergo significant systemic absorption and may also interact. In addition, propranolol and other beta-blockers may reduce the CYP450 hepatic metabolism of theophylline, and serum theophylline levels may be increased.
's that my sinuses wouldn't be the cause of my nausea and face pressure/pain. Despite my sinus history, he is sending me over to a neurologist and recommended I get a full blood work up with my primary care to check for anemia and other problems. I was shocked he found no connection to my sinus problem and am worried he is missing something. That is why I have found myself at this forum. I don't know what neurological condition could be causing my symptoms besides a brain tumor.
If there is anything wrong you will be given results in a day or so, but since they have already told you there is no problem you won't get notification so quickly because they have to prioritize people with bad results.So try to relax on Tuesday when no one calls, rather than worrying that they aren't calling for some other reason.
I've been trying to adjust with acupuncture, herbs and diet (but why o why do I have to give up my coffee?). There was a period where I was feeling better but then stupidly went out and drank champagne. How careless!!!! That sent me back into a spiralling relapse. This is has been an awful challenging year. I developed anemia and other deficiencies because of mal-absorption. My fatigue is crippling as well as constant stomach ache.
Also could be gastric emptying problems...and you migth have to do an emptying scan..now why your liver counts are elevated almost sounds also the gallbladder coule be a problem (you're pretty young to have gall stones..) but a ultrasound/HIDA scan might be in order.. gallbladder and food allergy sounds like the two i'd be looking into. My gallbladder was bad and we removed it but I think it was caused by the food allergy...celiac is easy and cheap to test for generally...
I have an appointment with my GI doctor next week, he also tested me for celiac disease, which he told me he will call me before my appointment if I had it, I have not received a call yet. I guess my question is, is the nausea related to my GERD? did H.pylori cause my GERD? What could be the reason for my nausea?
