My son 10 years old had terrible urinary problems. He cried and complained and pain while peeing.

My 2 1/2 year old daughter was prescribed this for a urinary tract infection. Her syptoms seemed to decrease the first 3 days, but before she had even finished the medication we had to go back to the doctor because her symptoms were back full force! It was also incredibly expensive, and I have relatively good insurance.

I am 17, when i started to take this medicine i developed nausea. then after several days i developed gas cramps from the medicine along with an upset stomach. I would only recommend this for those who have a strong stomach.

Comment:
This medicine was prescribed for my 4 yr old daughter and after 4 days of use she developed diarhea, stomach cramps and red spots/rash that "itched","hurt" and "burned" her. Her UTI went away but these side effects were a terrible flip side of the coin too
