    I was prescribed this medication this medication for a sinus infection due to allergies because I am allergic to penicillin and sulfa medications.

    I'm writing this for my boyfriend who was just prescribed it today by his primary doctor. He'd had a tooth extracted yesterday and dentist found out it was infected but didn't prescribe any antibiotics so our primary doctor did. He took one dose with dinner, 10 minutes later he broke out in a cold sweat, 15 minutes after dose he ran for bathroom vomiting. He tried to lay down and 5 mi ... Show Full Comment

    Was having dental work done and told to start the day before procedure. It took about 6 days before I got diarrhea and upset stomach but since I only had a couple of days to go I took the rest. Two weeks later I still have bowel issues and am going to see my gp. Took this because of allergies to amox. and sulfa drugs.
