    Definitely killed my infection after 2 months of not being diagnosed, so that was great. But what WASN'T so great was the side effects. Bitchy mood change, extreme nausea and loss of appetite, terribly dry mouth that I've been drinking 32 ounces of water every hour, and a mixture of constipation and diarrhea. I also had the dark urine for the first couple of days. The pill itself is super ... Show Full Comment

    I have had to take this medication several times, its disgusting. It doesn't matter what I drink or what I eat, the taste lingers all day long. Also bad nausea with this medication. It works getting rid of the infection but taking it is horrible.

    This drug works, but give me horrendous headaches. I just called the doctor to tell her I want off of it, and I prefer the gel! I feel horrible, weak, dizzy and my head is killing me. I've taken it before and could stand the headache, but not this time. Nothing, absolutely nothing will stop this headache, even when taken with food. The taste in your mouth is bad enough - but a migraine on ... Show Full Comment
