... lost 20 lbs. Lot of vomiting, diarea, and tasting smelling a very caustic taste the whole time I was taking it and for 8 days these symptoms have continued after stopping the medication. I finally had thought to open a capsule and smell it and it smells like the exact fast and smell of a caustic acid that I have been smelling and tasting. Is this how it should smell? And if f so how long does it take to for these side effects to go away?
Yes, that is the way it smells and tastes. Its not a side effect, its just the taste of it. Once you finish the meds it will go away. Some antibiotics taste worse. Be sure you take all of them, you were almost septic and need to be sure you've gotten rid of all of the infection.
