We r travelling thru India and have been given a course of ceficon-ax ( combination of cefixime200mg and azithromycin 250 mg) for my 19 year old daughter suffering from dizziness and mild diarioh. She has been taking it morning and evening for two days, but last night and today is feeling very nauseous and can't eat? Should we stop taking them? Regards Sara ## Those can be normal side effects of this medication, according to the NIH, she may also experience dizziness, headache, and non-allergic skin rash. However, she should continue the medication as directed by the doctor. Is she on any other medications? Did she eat anything unusual?

i have a painful tooth..my jaw is swollen and i have a white pustular bump that oozes when i press on my gum ## Hello, Marie! How are you feeling?

Its side effects may include nausea, dizziness, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. Learn more Craztronin details here. However, it should only be used if it has been prescribed by your dentist or doctor, since you do need to make sure that you have enough to complete a full course of treatment to properly eradicate the infectious bacteria. Additionally, it will not correct whatever underlying problem caused the infection, so you also still need to see your dentist for follow up care, otherwise the infection wil...
