This was the most horrible medication I have ever taken. It made me sicker than I was before I took it! When I called the Dr. to get something else they said make sure you are eating with it.

I had the worse headache I had ever had ... Show Full Comment

After taking for nine days of a ten day treatment I started getting hot and sweaty or cold and shivering. Very bad indigestion. Achy and just want to sleep. After checking reviews other people have had the same symptons. Will not take last days pills or ever again.
