    I think the side effects are horrible. I vomited after taking this med. I am on day one and will not continue if this happens again.

    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. The only bad thing, is that I worry about building resistance, as I have already had to up the does from 250 to 500. I take 2x/day for 3 days.
