Comment:
I had an upper respiratory infection and the beginning of strep throat. The short didn't hurt and I felt fine, it didn’t really make feel any better. After about 5 1/2 to 6 hours later I had extreme / sever diarrhea. Worse case I have ever had in my life!! I would not recommend unless it’s a last resort. The diarrhea is worse then the origional conditions.

Comment:
received one injection at dr. office of this for symptoms of strep throat/infection. Went home and back to bed , upon waking throat was no longer sore and I felt much better. In about 2 days the white pussy crap was clearing up back there. They diluted with lidocaine but it still hurt in my opinion. Hate to imagine what it would have been like without the lidocaine. YIKES

I had a VERY severe soft tissue infection in my face. Received one shot of this medicine and within 12 hours I began to feel better. Dr. put some numbing medicine in with the shot and I experienced no pain. This medicine saved me from having to be admitted to the hospital.
