Talk to your doctor, it could be an allergic reaction and he may put you on a different medication.

Call the pharmacist or your doctor right away, and take their advice. Usually, an allergic reaction is not a good thing and means that you have to change medications. I would personally stop as soon as the "side effect" showed itself. Not all such reactions are dangerous, but they can be, so not wise to ignore them.

As with all prescriptions: If you experience any adverse reactions, stop taking immediately and contact the doctor who prescribed it.

You could phone call a pharmacy to ask for their recommendation
Or discuss with your doctor about getting prescribed a different medication.
