Took this med for a month and it worked great. After a month I started with a "viral throat" which was very painful. Went on ati-virals and tried half a dose with same side effects. Tried one more time taking it every other day...same results. Meds worked great, but could not handle side effects.

I broke out in a rash and my stools were clay-color after taking this medication. My stomach was also hurting a lot.
