Went to Endodontist in extreme pain, bad infection. Was given this medicine to take three times a day. First day was fine but by the second day I was belching, had stomach pains and gas as well as loose bowels. Not sure if to continue or stop this med. Seeing it's the weekend the office is closed. I'm taking one more dose it my stomach gets worse I'm not taking it anymore.
