Actually, I was put on this meds for mouth surgery, and for some reason this has treated my yeast infection because before I went in surgery I had a yeast infection and now its gone. I haven't not had any side effects from this antibiotic.

I'm treating a long standing sinus infection and it's gone gone gone. Happy! But now at day 10 I have a severe itching and rash from the anus to the opening of the urethra. Going to have to stop it. Had no other problems.

Comment:
Went to walk-in clinic for extremely painful finger because of a hangnail that I tore. After 10 days nail is still sore to touch. In the beginning I had stomach upsets and diareah, however subsided at the present. This morning woke up with a small dark vaginal dischage which scared me as I haven't had my period for over 17 years. Going to doctor on Monday to check.

Comment:
I had a cut on the bottom of my foot. It was prescribed by the ER. On the down side the medicine has a horrible odor; it caused extreme gas, loose stools and indigestion. One the plus side the medicine worked and it is only $4 for 30 caps.
