Contact the prescribing dr before you take it again, or at the very least ask the pharmacist, or call NHS direct and ask them.

I would ring NHS direct. What does the leaflet with the meds tell you to do if you experience side effects?

it only says about itching and says to tell your doctor if you experience other side effects are mentioned.maybe its not them at all but bit of a coincedence.
