I have taken this drug for the past two cases of sinusitis. I kept the empty bottle to remind me of what worked before. I now have another sinus infection, three winters in a row and I will see my doctor asap to get this drug again. It worked very well for me although it did make food and water taste funny for the duration. I had some weird dreams too but only for a few days. I will gladly ta ... Show Full Comment

My dad took these pills for bronchitis and it was just terrible. He got all the possible side effects; dizziness, nausea, fainting, etc. He lost 15 lbs in one week and by day 6 his ankles were 4 times the size they're supposed to be, they were almost getting stretch marks. He went to the doctor and he said that's normal for this pill. If it's so common, why is it not printed on the war ... Show Full Comment

Unfortunately I finished the whole prescription before reading these reviews. I only had 10 pills prescribed to me and had noticed 4 days ago that I was having some unbearable pain in my shoulders and my back, not to mention the elevated ... Show Full Comment
