    I started with the 750mg dose for two days. After the 2nd dose I developed severe ankle and lower leg pain, starting @ the ankles and working it's way up, to the point of not being able to walk without great difficulty. I immediately stopped the drug and reported side effect to my Physician. Took 2 days for tenderness to subside.

    helped, but after 5 days I still have symptoms. Felt a little foggy, but it's strong stuff and that's what yu need to get well sometimes. Don't let others bad experiences stop you from taking this med, it's very good and fr me I barely had any side effects at all
