Took this for a sinus infection due to allergies, vocal chord swelling that didn't respond to Keflex. Really helped me a lot. Some side effects I had were: trouble sleeping, a bit moody, energy, felt hot, increase in hunger, no food tasted normal

So relieved to read the other reviews. prescriped this for sinus infection - cleared that up, but have never felt worse. i am sick every day...so swollen, out of body experiences, feel like i'm crazy. indigestion, feel horrible. only 4 more days of weaning off of it - will never use it again. this stuff could be dangerous in the wrong person. makes me feel like another being.

This is the only drug I found to help in any way with the pain I have had for 15 yrs from Neuropathy. I can now walk again and do simple things like going into a store with out a scooter. MOst of the time I can't take any thing because of the side affects and with this I had none just all my pain went away almost over night.
