Diagnosed with chronic sinus infection. On pill for 1 month. Unknown if its effective yet. Bad taste grows throughout first week, peaks, then diminishes.

Nausea only if my stomach is empty- travel with crackers. Lots of tiredness, but drinking lots of wate ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I went to my doctor for a sinus problem. He determined I had the beginnings of a sinus infection. He prescribed this medication, which I've been on for 4 days. It hasn't done a thing for me.
