I have been on for 7 days. Pills are hard to swallow. My stomach always aches and feels like I want to throw up. Extreme gas and bloating feels like my insides are being squashed and hard to breat. Ankles swell, headaches and foggy/dizzy feeling all the time. This is not the first time on this med, have it maybe 3x a year and feel this way everytime. I have to use it for chronic sinusitis.

After 4 days, the sinus problem went away but in the meantime, I developed itching "all over", a vaginal infection, and WORST of all, I developed severe chest pains. I thought I was having a heart attack. I am still waiting for a doctor to call be back about the severe reaction I am having to this HORRIBLE drug !!!!

I have been taking this for eight days, my sinus infection feels like it is getting better. However, the past three days I have had sever leg pain, like I just run up ten flights of stairs. And I have had a constant headache sense my first dose. I am hoping the pain will stop after my last dose.

I took this for sinus infection. The sinus infection went away then came the diarreah. I found out 2 weeks later that it destroyed allthe good bacteria as well. Now I have a major problem I now am on metronidazole for 7 more days to try to kill all the bad bacteria I have now. I am eating yogurt to try to produce good bacteria. I hope this works.
