I take this med for folliculitis and acne. It works wonders on the skin, but the side effects are horrible. When taken on an empty stomach I feel sick within minutes and I end up vomitting soon there after. I prefer to take it 30 minutes before going to bed.

I love the fact that it controls my acne problem, because I get it bad. However, one of the side effects I get are yeast infections. That's the part that I hate.

I have only been using this medication for a couple days, but I have not had any problems such as nausea or vomiting. I eat (somewhat heavy) 2 hours before I take the pills morning and night. It does leave a slightly strange after taste for a while in your mouth but besides that I feel good for the rest of the day or night. Do drink a lot of water.

i found that if i take it about 30-45 minutes after eatting with the 8 oz. of cold water, that i'm relatively fine, however, taking it on an empty stomach in the morning made me terribly nauseated and nothing helped stop it for about an hour or two. it's really helping clear up my skin when tons of otc stuff didn't.
