Antibiotic headaches

I was prescribed antibiotics for UTI. Last night around 7pm, I took my first dose. Not long after, I got a horrible headache. I laid down with my daughter and fell asleep. When I woke up about an hour later, I felt better. Now this morning  I took my second dose and have a headache again.

Anyone else get headaches with antibiotics? Should I call my Dr. to switch to a different brand?

  • I've never had a reaction like that. You could just be getting headaches from the infection, but I honestly have NO idea. I would call your doc and ask

  • You need to call the doctor. It could be the antibiotic or something else.
