    Prescribed by my dentist after tooth extraction. I am now on the third day of taking this medication and I have a horrific case of diarrhea/stomach cramps. No warning put on the bottle of pills by the pharmacy, but I was warned by my dentist beforehand to stop if I got diarrhea, so I am calling him and stopping this medication immediately.

    I have taken this medication several times for a throat infection. I have had a couple of throat infections over the past few years that have caused my tonsils to become sore, swell and develop white patches. The prescription cleared the infection each time with no adverse side effects. My ear nose and throat specialist first prescribed it to me and has given me the same medication each time.
