Got bit by a stray cat and just wanted a tetanus shot and was given this. Caused severe tiredness, upper stomach pain and white spots and problems in throat.

I was not told I was getting adacel d-tap I assumed it was a regular version of the old tetnus shot. I have been very ill for almost 4 days. My arm is in excruciating pain. USERS BEWARE.. ITS HORRIBLE I am middle aged and have never been this sick from a shot..I was not told what type of tetnus I was receiving. When I called the drs. office they said no one has ever complained about a reaction. Well I am I have had to go back twice and missed a week of work.

I have been out of work for 3 days. Fatigued,I also experienced a strange sensation all the way up the arm in which I received vaccine and into my head. Not to mention for two days I could barely get out of bed. I had shorness of breath. I had to go back to the doctor to make sure nothing serious was going on. I will never take this vaccine again.

Received shot as a whooping cough (pertussis) preventative - more and more prevelant these days and my wife and I expect a newborn soon, so this was recommended. In addition to a rash and a lot of soreness at the site (which I'd been warned of), I experienced stiffness throughout the body for three days, felt fatigued and had a fever and night sweats.

I'm age 62. I was prepared by Nurse for experience of pain at injection site. Not prepared for pain in entire upper body musculature and joints, mild fever, fatigue,drowziness, and dizziness. As only recommended to age 64, I not intend to repeat this shot if still alive in 10 years.

Mild nausea a few hours after receiving injection in upper arm. One day after injection had chills after I went to bed,some mild pain at the injection site. Now 3 days later have small lump and 5 inch by 2 inch pink area at injection site, very little pain.

I took this drug on recommendation of my doctor on a routine visit. The nurse told me my arm may hurt for a few days but I was not told that this drug is also for Pertussis and Diphtheria. It has been over a week now and I have chills and severe vertigo and dizzy spells. I have never been this sick in 60 years. The doctor does not seem to know what to do and tells me she never saw a reaction like this. I have been to see her now 3 times with no real relief from these symptoms which do not go away. I will never ever take this drug again. Beware!
