I took this medication for a root canal infection. After 5 days I had severe heartburn I thought I was going to pass out! I stopped taking it then about 10 days later had severe stomach cramping and soft stools that lasted 2 weeks. If felt like I had the flu for 2 weeks. I will never take this again!!
