    I had an gum infection. The meds made me feel sick. It tells you to take with food but the medicine makes you not want to eat and with my infection it was difficult to eat anyways.

    This medication was for my one month old son. I tried everything to get him to keep his food down, but nothing worked. He was only on the medication for a day and a half and he was vomiting everything he ate about 5 to 10 minutes after eating. It is a horrible medication for any child to be on let alone a newborn baby!

    Used drug for a serious tooth infection. Make sure you consume food before taking, medicine is very hard on the stomach.
