    Took Cleosin for a week following a dental implant. Infection free but the diarrhea began on the first day and has continued now two weeks since ending the medication. Taking probiotics, eating yogurt and foods that would bind up a river--with no results. Identical thing happened last time I took this med.

    I was prescribed this drug for an infection found during a root canal. The first 2 days were awful. I could barely eat and I would throw the medicine up within hours of taking it. By day 3, I was ok. TAKE THIS MEDICINE WITH A PROBIOTIC. Try yogurt or a probiotic pill. I am now pain free and able to take the medicine with ease. It works, just give it time.

    Prescribed by my dentist before having a root canal retreated due to an abscess. After two days of taking the medication I began experiencing terrible stomach cramps and diarrhea. I called my dentist who advised me to stop taking it immediately. After looking the medicine up online I am shocked I was given it in the first place. I have a very sensitive stomach and am a small person. This medicine ... Show Full Comment
