Headaches, Dizziness and Tiredness After Antibiotics

Patient: I took austell ciprofloxacin prescribed by a doctor, i finished the course but im getting headaches,dizziness and tiredness. what should i do?

 

 

Doctor: The headaches, dizziness and tiredness may be due to an underlying viral flu and may not necessarily be a result of the the antibiotic. You can try over the counter medication like tylenol. I would also advice adequate rest. If these do not help, you may need to consult your doctor to rule out a sinus headache and prescribe appropriate antibiotics for the infection.
