the medicine works well at controlling the smell,but it never completely goes away.the restrictions on all alcohol products is too much,cant even use hair spray or perfume.i felt some dizziness and cramps and some nausea sometimes,but no diarrhea.didnt get yeast infections yet.i would use clidnamycin,but i have trich and its the only medicine for it and i cant take the oral pills.
