    Severe sinusitus caused by ???? Anyway I have been on this consecutively for about 8 years...everytime I get an infection this is what I get. And my chronic sinusitis keeps returning.

    I suffer from irritable bowel syndrome. This anitbiotic, like others, has causerd stomach cramping and diarhea. I do like the fact that you only take it once a day for 5 days. The pills are small and easy to swallow.
