    I gave this medication to my 8 yr old daughter for strep throat. The strep throat cleared up but she had a SEVERE reation to the meds. She is covered in a rash from head to toe! The rash dots are blending together on her cheeks, arms and hips and are now one big red patch. But the rest of her body is covered in red dots!

    I took this for a tooth infection until a root canal could be done. Pain from infection was gone within 12 hours. Bad metallic taste in mouth after the first day on pills, severe heartburn after second day. On the third day I thought I was having a heart attack, the pain in my chest was so bad. I will stop taking and inform my dentist of the problem.

    This medication immediately relieved headaches, throbbing in mouth and throat. I had an infection prior to root canal. I am in treatment day 3 of 7 with diarrhea beginning on day 2. I have notice other symptoms of pain and stiffness have gone. Given the benefits, I will cautiously keep using the drug to day 7 completion-unless side-affects persist. Overall I would report this drug as ... Show Full Comment
