caused fluid retention and harmed kidneys. and with another anti-biotic for 22 days the infection went away. it might have helped.

The side effects were more than I could handle: extreme muscle pain/weakness, severe fluid retention, and elevated hypertension.

My 17 yr old daughter is receiving Cubicin I.v at home for atleast the next 4 weeks. One week in and she is having most the side effects ie.. nausea/vomiting, muscle/joint pain, fatigue etc.. however one not mentioned is hair loss, its coming out by the handful. I haven't heard if anyone else has experienced this. efficacy of this new drug is great, but it is very hard on the body.

I've had a yeast infection, then the nausea and diarrhea started. I've been very fatigued lately. My muscles are sore all over. I've been on it this time for 3 wks and have 3 more to go. Was on this stuff last yr for 5 wks and don't remember feeling this crappy.
