    Effective, but kept me flushed and tired. Could not sleep at night. Woke up every two to three hours. Have to work so need my rest. Anxious and easily irritated. Job is physical so I cannot work well. No stomach upset and no bad taste in mouth but severe headaches and I never get them normally. Am going to change to something else.

    I cut my dose in half and it made the side effects tolerable. The taste in my mouth isn't as bad and it seems to be working for me, I will just have to take it longer.

    My Dr. rx this medication for me. HORRIBLE!!Do not take this medication unless you really have too. The taste in the mouth makes you sicker then what you went to the Dr. for. I had to stop the medication after 7 taken. My Dr. did not return my call so I hope by not taking any antibiotics now that I can get over this on my own.

    The medication worked quickly; however, as many others have stated the taste that it leaves in your mouth is HORRIBLE!!! Even with food, it literally tasted as if I had I chewed the pill up instead of swallowing even hours after taking it! It lingered FOREVER!!! In addition, I also experienced strange dreams and great difficulty sleeping. Overall, I would have to say that if you're feeling ... Show Full Comment
