  • Keep hydrated but it's normal. Try to hang in there and just cope with the dizzy feeling because it's part of the bug.

  • Z -pack is Zithromax. It's not 5 different antibiotics, it's one. It treats certain bacterial infections, and your Dr would know which one is best to treat what you have. If it's not bacterial, then you shouldn't take antibiotics.
    Tamiflu is not an antibiotic, it's an antiviral medication to treat the flu, which is a virus, not a bacterial infection.

    Drink plenty of fluids, get rest, and relax, it will be over soon, and you'll be back to normal before you know it. Maybe watch a movie, or read a book, or take a nap. Hope you're feeling better soon!

  • I got through it without taking anything. I was very dizzy too & when my fever spiked I got very nauseous. I took Advil every time I felt my fever going up & felt much better. Just drink plenty of water & get as much sleep as you can. It took about a week & 1/2 for me to feel better but now I have a gagging cough & I still have a sore throat. It's not easy to be that sick & take care of children & feed them 3 meals a day & snacks. I know how you feel. Just hang in there & this too shall pass.
