Brief Answer:
More of food poisoning!

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thanks so much for this query.

I am so sorry to hear about what you experienced. If your symptoms were related to the medications, it would have been excessive sleepiness. That is not what you experienced. Your symptoms are characteristic of food poisoning.

I hope this helps. I wish you well.
