I'm satisfied that it has cleared meup, BUT the side effects have been horrible for me. I stayed nauseated and tired, it didn't matter how I took it I stayed that way. The side effects were hard to live with but it did clear me up quickly.

This is the 2nd time i have taken the medication, different dosage then the 1st time, but still the same results. I haven't experienced a bad taste or problems like alot of people have mentioned. I made sure to wait a few days after having an alcoholic drink before started the dosage and waiting the same time afterwards. Overall easy, pain free medication.
