Stay away from this drug. I had a stubborn sinus infection and was given this drug only to get joint pain, tendinitis and pain in my right arch that makes it hard to walk first thing in the morning. I feel lucky compared to what I have read others have gone through. I would not take this drug or anything related...EVER!
