Invanz side effects

After a year treating of treating a bladder infection using 5 antibiotics and finally sent to infectious disease. I had a PICC line put in and received 28 days of 1Gm of Invanz in an outpatient infusion center. Like an idiot never thought to ask if Medicare would cover it. The side effects were awful. It really exacerbated my fibromyalgia. Extreme fatigue, nausea, roaring in my head. I've been off it for four days. How long before it's out of my system? The bacteria was a very resistant E.coli.
