Comment:
In June, 2013 I developed a Severe sinus infection. This was the 3rd antibiotic I was given for this infection. My prescription was for 21 days. The nurse practitioner at my Ear, Nose and Throat dr asked if I was a runner and mentioned the Achilles tendon tears. I told her we rode bikes for 15-25 miles and I was assured that would be fine. On day 10 I developed pain in my right shoulder. I google ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I had a sinus/ear infection that was treated in the past with other long term antibiotics and eventually, surgery. I needed this antibiotic about 2 months after surgery. It has really made an improvement.The best advice I can give is if you need to take this medication, take high potency Omega-3, multivitamins, eat bananas (or another source of potassium)and drink lots of water too.

I had an ingrown toe nail with a cut on top of my toe. Was given this med for infection before nail removal. I took two doses of this med and my right knee has absolutely been about to kill me pain swelling and cellulitis in my left leg. Do not take this medication for anything.

Comment:
I have been treated with this drug 3 times in the last 5 years due to antibiotic resistant chronic sinus infections. Each time, it has quickly alleviated my infection and the only side effect has been insomnia. If I took the drug earlier in the day, it would probably help me sleep better. I have had no issues with neuropathy, and don't even have diarrhea with the drug. I'm on it again ... Show Full Comment
