I was given Flucloxicillin for an infected insect bite a few days ago and the side effects are awful: non-stop severe nausea and acid indigestion, I feel completely exhausted and very unwell. It was reassuring to see from other people's comments that these are common and - hopefully - temporary side effects, but I wish my doctor or the leaflet had mentioned it. I don't think I was given enough information and choice. My infection was very minor and the discomfort of the side effects far outweighs any benefit in clearing a problem that may well have cleared up on its own. I had bad enough digestive and energy-level problems already.
