i had severe tonsilitis (huge tonsils with white spots) and was prescribed this along with an alergy/antihistamine medicine. it worked quite well the only downfall was that i would get extremely drowsy after taking it and would have acid reflux. the drowsiness was severe to the extent that i'd fall to sleep 2 hours before i normally would. still it made me better (after penicillin didn't work) so...

I get the shakes and feel as if my skin is crawling. It's very similar to drug withdrawals. My heart will beat rapid. It lasts for 4+ hours. My mistake my also be taking at bedtime to avoid more stomach upset with my other medications' as I also have MS. I do not want to take this medication again and have 2 pills left. I have taken it for 8 days out of 10 I am to be on this medication. It makes my neck stiff and my body feels so tight. I normally do not have reactions to drugs, so this is new to me. I take a lot of medications. It has helped the bronchitis somewhat, but I still have fluid in my lungs and cough. I never want to take this medication again.

Took 2 doses of this drug and developed swelling in facial tendons. Was also on prednisone at the time. I never had any allergic reaction such as this with any other drug. Would not recommend this drug for anyone using prednisone.
