The drug has treated my UTI just fine. The side effects I experienced were extreme exhaustion, feelings of depression, mood swings, which I never get. I have a few more pills remaining which I'll take, but if given the choice in the future I'll ask for something else. I wish I would have known before hand so I could have warned my friends and family!

Within 30 minutes of taking the first pill I had a very strong allergic reaction. Started with itching in palm of hands, feet and groin area.

Took the first pill and woke up the following morning thinking I had the flu. I experienced chest tightness, cough, extreme fatigue, joint pain, and nausea.
