Default Horrible Side Affects

I took 1 pill after my doctor gave it to me. Within 30 minutes, I was suffereing from an extremely rapid heart beat, swelling of the lips and redness of the facial skin. I thought I was having a heart attack. I called my doctor, but he was gone and I got in touch with the on-call physician. He instructed me to take Benadryl to counteract what Tequin had done to me. I'll never take this drug again. Just 2 days later, I had severe leg and joint pain on my right side and had much difficulty sleeping. It was just a horrible experience. It made me feel worse than I already was. Beware when using this drug. Ask your doctor for an alternative, and ask him if it's absolutely necessary you need it. Doctors in the US tend to over-prescribe drugs, namely antibiotics these days from pressure from patients. Antibiotics CAN'T kill viruses, and viruses are what affects most people during the Winter months. Rest, fluids and more rest are the key to recovery.
