Felt blah, run down and plain old sick. Digestive trouble started about mid way through the 10 day treatment. Was also taking Omnicef with this med. Raspy scratchy throat, dry cough. No energy. Have been off meds now for a few days and still not feeling great. Infection cleared up. But side effects still hanging around.

Got MRSA from my roommate. I had to take a whole week off work while I was on this. Dizzy, headaches, fatigue etc. Basically you feel like you have a really bad hangover for the whole duration of use. I think it is b/c this dehydrates you. Drink lots of water! Also, my roommate took the same meds and had a severe allergic reaction to them (hives and felt like he had the flu).
