Allergic reaction to medication…OUCH

I am getting over an allergic reaction to a medication I was put on for a possible urinary tract infection, which I ended up not having. When I pick up my medicine, I always ask what a reaction might be. Do you? If you don’t, I suggest you start. If you do, hat’s off to you.

I got a rash. I was so tired I could not keep my eyes open. My eyes were so swollen!  I had trouble walking from my car to my front door. I was very dizzy. I just did not feel like myself.

I went to urgent care and was taken off the medicine right away. I had to wait for it to work its way out of my bloodstream. All of this started because my blood work showed my nitrites and leukocyte were positive. I since found out that sometimes they are and it is fine. I am being referred to a specialist, to be on the safe side.

Have any of you had reactions? If you want to share..go right ahead please.

Always read the labels!
