Call your derm/doctor and state the side effects. Some antibiotic formulations have different instructions for taking them; some even in the same class or even the same medication but with different other ingredients must be taken on an empty stomach and some must be taken with food. Some can be taken with food to minimize GI distress even if they work better on an empty stomach.

ALWAYS drink a full glass of water with any medication to make sure you've taken enough fluid with the tablet to convince it to travel completely to the stomach. A full glass of water can also minimize side effects sometimes.

The symptoms you describe can also be indicative of dehydration. Drink more water!
