Okay. I am trying to recover from a sinus infection thing. It is not fun.
Anyway, the doctor I saw was not my regular doctor so he gave me an antibiotic and can you guess what one of the post marketing adverse reactions listed are? I bet you can! Yes- it’s PANCREATITIS!
This doctor gave me- a person with chronic recurrent pancreatitis- a drug that CAUSES pancreatitis!
How do I know that? Well, I started throwing up last night and my side started hurting a lot, and it’s not better this morning, so I looked it up.
I’m really trying to avoid the emergency room.
I feel disgusting.
Meanwhile, since I don’t know that the antibiotic is making me sick, I need to take it.
I wish MY doctor wasn’t always booked solid. It would be awesome to be able to see him when I didn’t feel well.
Such is life I suppose.
