    On day 9 became dizzy, more dizzy on day 10. Have been dizzy for 17 days now and this has not gone away. Also had severe joint pain in hips and shoulders and could not sleep which now has gotten better. DO NOT USE YHIS RX!

    Cleared my head and throat but extremely glad to have taken the last dose as my heart rate is accelerated at times and I have experienced pain in my elbow and arms and hands: areas of arthritis and such enhanced. As I have finished the pills I feel this should lessen.

    After taking one dose of 500 mg, I began to have an awful metallic taste in my mouth along with nausea. It has also prevented me from sleeping, which I never had a problem with before. It's been 24 hours, and the bad taste is still there along with light headedness. I would never take this medication again.

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
