    I have had this medicine before without any issues. This time around, I had some side effects. Headache, upset stomach, loss of appetite, Nausea, heartburn, gas. One should eat half a meal, take medicine, then eat the other half. Taking it with any diary product seem to make side effects worse.

    I left a tampon in for who knows- a few days? And Upon going to Planned Parenthood they prescribed me this. It is a pill, so easy to take, but tastes bad. I was also taking Diflucan oral on day one and after day 7. So not sure if the dark urine was the M or the D.

    I have been on this drug for about a week and honestly I don't know if I can stay on it. I'm getting headaches, dizziness, nausea, sore throat, loss of appetite, diarrhea, stomach cramps (because it upsets my stomach whether taken with a meal or not), and an odd feeling similar to vertigo, where the world just feels different suddenly or I almost pass out. The pills taste absolutely disgus ... Show Full Comment
