... extremly fatigued friday and yet cannot sleep due to muscle & joint pains. It is now Monday and I am still extremly fatigued and sore everywhere.. How long does it take for the drug to leave the body??
The drug is gone in about 8 hrs. What you describe isn't really side effects of the drug. However, there is something called jarisch-herxheimers reaction that is. This is a reaction to the toxins given off as the bacteria die. It causes everything you describe. Its self limiting and taking an NSAID like motrin or aleve will help.
