Oh, and the bad taste in your mouth I drank a ton of ... Show Full Comment

    I went to my doctor for a sinus problem. He determined I had the beginnings of a sinus infection. He prescribed this medication, which I've been on for 4 days. It hasn't done a thing for me.

Apparentlly I had ulcers in between the stomach and the small intestins and it took care of those (It amaized me that Ulcers are caused by a bacteria so all that pain is gone). Still have 2 days to go on a 10 day RX so I am hoping it will ... Show Full Comment
