4 days into a 10 day regimen I could not tolerate it. Diarrhea, stomach cramps and generally feeling horrible. I refused to take the rest and threw the remaining dosages out... At the time of writing this, I took my last dose 36 hours ago and I'm still not feeling well. I'd like to note that I generally have a high tolerance for medications, but not this one. I had high hopes thi ... Show Full Comment

This is the end of day 9, tomorrow I will be finished taking Pylera. No major side effects, but this has been a pain. I decided to restrict myself to the house due to sun exposure. Will not find out if this has worked until I take a breathe test next month. Hope I am cured, because I will not be doing this process again.
