    I was only able to take the medication for 2 days as the second day I broke out in a rash. It was a shame too because this medication really does work. The after I took to first does my throat felt much better. Hopefully they will come out with something like it without the reactions.

    I was only on this medecation for 3 days because the dr. had given me a shot of Pen. when I was in his office, but after taking it I became very jittery, had nausea, stomach pains, was dizzy, and my blood pressure went very high. This medication could be very dangerous for some people.
