I was prescribed this Medication for an abcess in my tooth. I had only taken 4 pills when I became ill with vomitting and had pain/burning in my stomach/throat.

I took this for a bacterial infection in my tonsils and it was the only thing that worked for me all three times I had this condition. Warning though: do not mix with Prednisone. The combination of the two gave me an ulcer the third time and I had to stop taking it. That's what you get when a doctor is getting pumped to sell a drug (ie the Prednisone).
