I was on amoxil for a sinus infection when it came back I had nasty sore throats every night which were gone within 24 hours of beginning this medication. It does taste horrible but I found a suggestion on another site to coat the pill in honey which works great. I don't taste the bitterness at all. It is a little rough on my stomach if I take it with milk or yogurt it seems to stop me from having...

This medicaton in the form of a pill has the most horrible tasting coating on it that leaves a bitter taste long after and is very hard to swallow because of its size.

Been on this medicine almost 30 days. Was worried about side effects. Worst side effect is severe constipation for but so far seems to be getting rid of my Lyme symptoms. Tolerated this well on my stomach with food. 500mg 2x a day. Good drug for me.

I am allergic to Macrobid and Bactrim and had horrible side effects from Cipro so there is not much I can take for a UTI. My doctor prescribed this and it is the only med that gets rid of my infection. The generic form does not have a horrible taste, as experienced by some. I have found you must take it with food and during the course of your treatment, as with any antibiotic, drink lots of water.

I am allergic to most of the main antibiotics used for urinary tract infections and I found that I can take this one. The generic does not have the horrible taste, but you must take it with food and drink plenty of water. I hate taking it because it makes me feel awful at first, but then after a few days, I get used to it. It does help my urinary tract infections.

A urine test was done by a lab tech. who reported to my PCP that he found bacteria in the urine - E.coli - which came as a surprise to me as I had no symptoms whatsoever. My PCP ordered the prescription, I took 2 pills a day for 5 days at which time I stop because I had vainal bleeding. Since then I have been having severe urinary tract infection.
