    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.

    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.

I've taken antibiotics and probiotics afterwords and it really helps with stomach sensitivity
