This medication caused an allergic reaction in my 16 year old son and it resulted in him getting hives. He was then given medicine to counteract the results of hives. He is now on a different antibiotic.

My 3 year old was put on it for ear infection.He wasn't able to explain how he felt, but we could tell he didn't feel well while on this antibiotic. He had diarrhea, a poor appetite, fever and on the 8th day woke up with a thick rash all over his body. After taking him to the ER we were told he had an allergic reaction to it.

After the second day of starting the treatment,I would wake up with vomiting and diarrhea every morning. Symptoms would lessen somewhat as the day progressed, but experience constant dizziness and lack of appetite. Also suffered insomnia. Had to stop taking it by day 5. Lost 10 lbs just from the nausea and loss of appetite in 3 days.
