Antibiotic side effects?

I'm 16 years old and a had weird rash develop so I was prescribed some antibiotics that I've had before when I had an mrsa infection on my arm and went to hospital 3 years ago, and about 72 hours into taking antibiotics I've felt really light headed and dizzy and its lasted now for 4 days and I'm getting increasingly worried because I've never felt like this before and its terrifying my Parents have suggested its just a side effect and will end after finishing my antibiotics which was about 18 hours ago.

Go to the hospital now instead of waiting 18 hours! If you are having an allergic reaction, you talk with a doctor as soon as it starts, instead of waiting around to see  what happens.
What if it is not the antibiotics and something else instead? Are your symptoms going to go away or are they going to remain? Only a doctor will be able to tell you what is really going on.
Hope you get feel better.

Hi and welcome to the Migraines & Headaches Community.

You don't have to go to the hospital unless it's a life threatening side effect like trouble breathing or throat closing up. You can always call a pharmacist to ask questions about any medications. And they are easier to get a hold of than the doctor usually.
