I thought I might have had a stomach virus or conditions caused by stress. However after reading the side effect of this medication, I now believe it to be the cause of all stomach issue.

    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).

    Appears to begin working very quickly. Pain associated with infection down to a minumum shortly after taking first dose. Even when taking with lots of water, experienced the most acute heartburn ever! Dill pickles (vinegar) and Tums calmed it down. Also experienced very watery stool.
