PSA test before taking was 5.24 - after taking one 750 tablet each day for 21 days my PSA test result was 1.22. Only side effects were a tinny taste in my mouth, minor muscle soreness and a slight swelling in ankles. A small price to pay vs the prospect of possibly having prostrate cancer!

I have a Lymph Node infection. My ENT prescribed this med for me. It works great! The only thing I don't like is Dry Mouth. It was a hassle feeling thirsty. But other than that a bit of Nausea But, When taken on a full stomach I did well. Also It did mess up my body clock ( Sleepless Nights ) like alot of other people on here as well. The hassles outweighed the benefits for me.

Comment:
I was rx'd the 750mg for 5 days along with Septra DS 800 for a surgical infection after the placement of breast implants due to a bilateral mastectomy for breast cancer.

I do have to say that my thigh muscles ached terribly along with both knee joints on ... Show Full Comment
