I started this combo last week. One day four (Saturday night) I began to have nausea and diarrhea that kept getting worse and fever that went to 102 and then down to 100 and normal on Tue. I stopped taking on Monday and happened to have doc's appointment on Tue and my heart rate was 140 so I ended up getting IV fluids and anti nausea that causes constipation and I'm off meds until next week. I still feel really rough and weak with stomach cramps and finding it tough to eat. No appetite. Anyone get this severity of side effects or is it possibly stomach flu? Doc wasn't sure.
