I take this for recurring UTI's, which I get at least once / year. I have been taking this when needed for about 10 years. I have never had any bad side effects.

Comment:
It took my uti away but left me with a terrible headache, sore throat, dizziness, and sluggish feeling. I stopped taking it after the 3rd day and couldn't finish the 7 day perscription because of the side effects. It's been a week and they still haven't went away. I hope they aren't long term. I will never take this med again.
