I was prescribed this medicine for a UTI. I didn't notice any symptoms until night time while I was sleeping. The first day I took it I had three nightmares in a row and I NEVER have nightmares.

Used for suspicion of MRSA. After only two days of using this medicine, I became super weak and tired. I also became very dizzy and sick to my stomach. I was so dizzy at one point, that I even fell down. I stopped taking this medicine because I tested negative for MRSA.
