When I get a sinus infection that the more common anti-biotics won't get rid of, this will every time.

I was given Vantin for an upper respiratory infection and severe sore throat. I have taken 7 days worth and my throat is worse, rather than better. Now my ears hurt as well.

I have taken just about every med available for recurrent UTI so was happy to try a new one that my body was not immune to. On the 3rd day of taking Vantin I developed severe nausea. Lasted from about 5pm - 3:30am. Non-stop. Recovered the next day but didn�t take medicine because my stomach was still fragile. The next day I took the medicine and again came the nausea - all night. Torturous. I�m not 100% it was the Vantin but it was the only new thing I had introduced to my body and I only had nausea the days I took the medicine but it didn�t begin until the 3rd day of taking medicine. My UTI feels like it�s gone, but that�s typical after a few days of any med. Not taking Vantin anymore. Will call doctor for a sub to finish treatment.

After using Levaquin, Augmentin and Amoxycillin, Vantin is the only med my dr. now prescribes. Within 3 days I feel almost normal. Important to take the med for full term prescribed. No side effects whatever.

I am allergic to most antibiotics and was grateful when Vantin oral was made available to me. I have not recovered as quickly as expected and have had abdominal upset but it is slowly working. I am on day 9 of the 10 allowable so don't know what happens next but I at least know there is one drug out there that I can take.
