I was diagnosed with a middle ear infection, and sore throat. I developed horrible diarrhea! I was able to take only 5 days of this medication, and still am experiencing the side effects!! I do wish the doctor/pharmacist would have pointed these side effects out to me, stating also on the bottle these symptoms could last for months after taking the meds!!!! Take this product off the list.

He had been on medication for 8 days before he really ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I was prescribed this drug for a middle ear issue and told by an ER physician four days later to continue taking it to treat my bronchial issues that came afterwards. If taken with yogurt (Activia was brand of recommendation) I experienced no diarrhea - only occasional soft movements but did notice the 'bloody stool' appearance.
