    I started taking this medicine and within an hour of taking it, the nausea, and abdominal pains started. By the second day, the abdominal pains worsened, and became unbearable. I became very bloated, and this medicine was very uncomfortable and ineffective.

    Effectiveness, yes. Easy to use, sure, eat before taking and swallow the pill, easy. Satisfaction, NO WAY! One does and 18 hours later I was feeling much better. Then the rash started, and the itching, and then the hot sensation. I was lucky a co worker had benedryl. I do not have reactions to drugs and I really reacted to this one.

    I discovered that I was allergic to this medication. It caused a severe rash and the inability to breathe. I required emergency treatment.

    Prescribed by my Denist starting 2 hours before the procedure. I had requested a different antibotic, but he refused. With in 48 hours all the bad things others described and I had progressed to shock. Almost died. That this stuff away from Denists. My Internest said he never uses it because too many people have bad reactions.
