Thank you for using JustAnswer. I will be glad to assist you today.
There are a couple of issues to consider in this situation.
First, yes, it is possible that taking the symptoms could be due to the Exforge, although the Exforge can generally be taken on an empty stomach.
It is more likely, though, that the symptoms are either related to the antibiotic or to an infection. Any antibiotic can not only kill the good germs at the site of an infection, but can also kill the good germs in the gut. Side effects involving the gut (nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, or pain) are common with antibiotics, both as a direct side effect of the antibiotic or because of altered good germs in the but that allows for the growth of bad germs in the gut. There is one particular form of this that is potentially serious, in which the infection of the gut is cause by C. diff (short for Clostridium difficile
). These are more of a concern than whether the Exforge could have caused the symptoms.
Whether you need to be seen emergently would depend upon the severity of symptoms. From your description of the symptoms, it does not sound like it needs an emergent evaluation, but if the vomiting gets more protracted and occurs more often, then it would be appropriate to be seen. Otherwise, it would be OK to wait the few hours until your doctor is in the office. It is important that you be seen today, though, so if the office is booked and you cannot get in, then you should be seen elsewhere, either in the ER or an Urgent Care Center.
If you have any further questions, please let me know.
