I was prescribed this medication by my dentist to treat an abscess under my back molar. Dentist wanted to give me Amoxicillin but couldn’t due to my allergy to it. I have been taking it for nearly 3 days now and it has effectively decreased the swelling in my gums. HOWEVER... my story did not have a happy beginning. I was instructed to take 2 tabs (1000 mg) 4x a day for day 1, then 1 tab 4x a day ... Show Full Comment

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.
