Originally started taking it for malariya prevention. Kept taking it because my acne cleared up completely. Works very well when I remember to take it, but has to be taken with food or I get very nauseous.

I have been taking this med for a week now and the side effects are horrible. I am experiencing vaginal pain and discomfort. I have the urge to go to the restroom a lot. The pain is horrid. I have decided to stop taking this med.

Comment:
Not sure if it will work. I'm scared to start taking it because I know it kills all the good bacteria but a word of advice to all. They have over the counter probiotics that are reasonably priced. Ask you doctor if you can take it with the medication or take it after you finish the full treatment. I've taken antibiotics and probiotics afterwords and it really helps with stomach sensitivity

My son has been on this medication for his mild acne for about a year. It has improved his skin. However, he has developed stomach sensitivity. He is experiencing nausea and just recently vomiting has started-originally thought was a "flu-bug" but persisted. Unfortunately, will discontinue use.
