What are some side effects of an antibiotic shot for pneumonia?


Answer by  Jules28 (196)

Side effects can be minor, such as redness and soreness at the injection site. Some people may have more severe reactions like, vomiting, hair loss, rash, or diarrhea. In rare cases, major fungal infections, anaphylactic shock, and severe rashes may occur, but again, these are extremely rare cases and will happen almost immediately after receiving the shot.

As with most shots, the site of the shot (e.g. your arm, thigh or buttock) might be inflamed and hot to the touch. You might have some muscle soreness in or around the area of the shot. Most antibiotics will also cause you to be prone to yeast infections, so watch for thrush.

Only general side effects of antibiotics apply to this since this drug is mostly given to patients who have respiratory infections, or any infection. Side effects include: diarrhea, nausea and vomiting, fungal infections (since they destroy also good bacteria) and also allergic reactions (if allergic).
