    It took care of my infection pretty well. However, I have had horrible gas for the past week associated with dairy consumption, and the only thing I've done different this week is the medication. This made work quite embarrassing and my roommates are pretty grossed out with me.

I cannot wait to feel healthy again. I feel like I'm taking poison each time I take this pill. ... Show Full Comment
