Have taken 3 of 5 prescribed doses. Cannot sleep. Have sores in my mouth. Bronchitis seems to be clearing but am sure sleeping would help me get better faster.

This is THE worst drug. Took just three pills before I was beset with pain in back/shoulder area, elbow (feels like tennis elbow), and forearm is weak and stiff. It's now been a week since my last dose and the symptoms have not alleviated substantially. DO NOT TAKE THIS DRUG, even though it seems effective in eliminating infection.

This drug made me dizzy, weak, no strength in my arms or legs, muscle weakness, nauseous, rapid heart beats,and I could not function. I am 71 years old and was with the understanding that it should not be give to anyone over age 60. I took four of the seven pills given me. NEVER want to have to take this drug again!!!! I didn't want to give it ANY stars!!!!
