I had a bad cut on my upper lip from a blow to the face, it was untreated for about 20 hours so it started getting infected. the second dosage i took at night, about a hour later my body temperature was very high. My body was burning like I had a fever but my head was not hot. I was sweating badly and I could not sleep all night. I decided to stop taking the medication. Would not recommend it.

Comment:
I was prescribed this medication for Cellulitis and infection of my lower right leg. So far it seems to work just fine. I read the other reviews and there was no mention that it seems to work like a diuretic and causes extreme cramping. It maybe my other meds, but I didn't experience these until I started this medication.
