Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

like any other drug, nausea and stomach discomfort are not uncommon with this drug, however weakness fatigue are not very common with this drug, so it appears to me like these symptoms are probably because of your primary disease as these symptoms are common with respiratory infection and may persists for some times.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
