  1. I hAd difficulty swallowing caused by a sharp pain in my right tonsil. I went to the doctor and she took a test and told me that I had bacterial infection. So then, She prescribed me to take Cefdinir, (300mg )1 pill everyday for 10 days. This is my third day and honestly, I feel a lot better but I’ve been experience a lot of lightheadness every time I stand up. I don’t know if this is normal or so but it’s kind of worrying since I’d causing so much pain in my head. I’m 13 years old btw.
