I am currently on a heavy duty antibiotic for an upper sinus infection. In the past year I had UPPP surgery, pneumonia, a panic attack, gastritis, and was diagnosed with a mild hiatal hernia and acid reflux. I've also experienced recurrent nausea, lack of appetite, coated tongue, sour/dry mouth and other delightful GI experiences. My primary doc thinks the antibiotics used to treat the pneumonia (IV and at home) may have upset my GI tract, so now I am really upset that I have to be on antibiotics again! Can you suggest ways to minimize the stomach upset the inevitably goes along with a heavy dose of this stuff? What is the best time of day to take it? Any suggestions for how to get my appetite back? I miss it!
