    I started taking this drug on a Thursday for an infection in the gum around my crown. The tooth didn't hurt and was not bothering me but I had swelling in the gum. I felt fine until I starting taking this drug. My stomach hurt for hours after taking it and I felt almost like I had the flu. I took this for 2 1/2 days and started breaking out with a rash on my stomach, chest and arms. Called my ... Show Full Comment

    I took this as a result of a root canal. It worked but a side effect of it was that I broke out on my neck, back & chest with these pustules (spelled right?) like when you get bit by red ants. They are swollen, red and when you break the whitehead they hurt. I am a week into this side effect with no abating. I even had a few come up on my face. I am allergic to penicillin and am wondering if t ... Show Full Comment

By looking at the warning on this site, things can get r ... Show Full Comment
