CarolAN Asked :
I am not a person who gets sick often and as far as possible I try to stay away from drugs and let my body heal naturally. Recently I used penicillin and I noticed a bit of shortness of breath. I also became more anxious but I am not sure if this was anxiety due to the shortness of breath or worry about the condition I had. I had no other issues with penicillin so I did not mention it to my doctor at the time.
This infection recurred a little while later and I started taking penicillin again. I did tell my pharmacist about this shortness of breath and anxiety and he told me that it could be an allergy to penicillin and sulfa drugs and I should speak to my doctor. I did not speak to my doctor and I noticed the same symptoms again but it went away when I finished the course of tablets.
