Comment:
I have a severe allergic reaction to this drug. I now wear a allergy bracelet. Even half a tablet my mouth swells to a point where I cannot eat and I suffer from extreme itching in personal areas of my body. I need huge doses of steriods and takes a week to where I can start to feel relief.
