    Been taking for 5 out of 10 days every 12 hours. Feel much better after 5 days but tired a lot. Symptoms of sinus infection are gone but today, 6th day, saw lots of blood in my 8am bowel movement that scared me. Discontinued taking and have call in to my doctor for a different prescription. Blood in bowel movement is not acceptable to me!
