I will never take this drug again!! In an attempt to treat an infection in my gums, within hours of taking the first pill, I was vomitting and had SEVERE diaherra. To ensure it wasn't a fluke, I tried again days later and the exact same thing happened, but worse. The pain,cramping,sweating,extreme vomitting and pouring diaherra just wouldn't stop.

Prescribed 4 500mg tablets before any dental work after total knee replacement. Used this treatment twice with no problems. Third time I broke out in a rash and hives. Will request another antibiotic for next dental visit.
