My son is 4 and has a history of ear infections and pneumonia.

My two and a half year old was prescribed this medicine and it was horrible. I couldn't get him to take the 1/2 tsp he was prescribed. I thought he was being dramatic until I tasted it and to be honest, I wouldn't drink this if I was dying. The taste is HORRIBLE!! And he is too young to take pills so back to the Dr. we go!!

This drug seems to have helped my ear infection but I have broken out into a terrible rash from my toes to my neck (so far). It's really bad :(

My 3yr old has suffered from ear infections since he was a baby and is in his 4th set of tubes. His doctor tried this medication because it is stronger, however he broke out in a horrible rash and cant stop itching. He is also unable to take penicillins.

Comment:
My 21 month old has had ear infections and my doctor moved him on to this "more powerful antibiotic" stated by his pediatrician. The drug seemed to do the trick to quickly help his infection. I only had issues with the stimulant reaction, that he was unable to sleep normally. He seems more awake now at almost 10pm than two hours ago before I gave him his second dose. If not refrigera ...
