I was given this medication for infection prevention from the dentist pulling my tooth. The only thing I noticed different for me is the smell of my urine and I have been spotting blood between my cycle. I have another week to go, and I started spotting the day I started taking these pills. I know spotting is common naturally between periods, however, I haven't spotted before. I use the app 'MyDays' and it works to the T and never had any issues regarding that, until now.

Experienced extreme nausea with this, though it wasn't as severe when taken with food. Unfortunately even after a ten day course of penicillin vk, I ended up with step again 3 weeks later.

It caused stomach discomfort that lasted for weeks after I stopped the med. I stopped it early as advised by the dentist.
