    fairyforyou2003's review is much like mine -- by the third dose, horrible side effects. Felt like what they say on COPD commercials, with flu and stomach bug added. Freezing in July in GA, so much pain in my chest, with a deep cough, severe fatigue and pain everywhere. So nauseous I could not stay hydrated. Feels like I have a kidney stone now.

    Although it seemed to work on the infection it is not worth the side effect. I took 3 pills and have had the most excrutiating headaches! I cannot even function. Even now after more than 36 hrs of taking nothing. This drug is torture.

    I am so glad I came across the other reviews. I really thought I was getting the flu! After taking for 48 hours I started feeling dizzy, fatigue, nauseous, very constipated, headache, weak, and shortness of breath. Luckily I have only 2 days left. I was prescribed 10 pills to take for 5 days.
