Was out with strep a while back and I am allergic to amoxicillin, so I usually get screwed when it comes to antibiotics. Wen't to see the doc, he prescribed me this. Had to take one daily for 5 days, by day two I was already feeling 10000 times better than I was the previous week. 10/10 would take if I came down with strep again. I also didn't have a problem with any side effects.

Went to the doctor for a sore throat and cough with sinus pressure that didn't get better after a week of OTC's. Doctor said I had acute sinusitis. He prescribed a Z-pak for me and I was skeptical.

Was sick for five days. High fever, infected sinuses, clogged ears, sore throat, wheezing. It was bad. I finally broke down and went to the doctor during my lunch break. He gave me a Z-Pack and within two hours of taking the first dose, I started to improve. It's now day three and I am nearly cured, just a little left-over congestion and a light cough.

I will never take this antibiotic again! Ended up in the ER with severe stomach pains and getting many shots to stop it! Just so you understand the pain, I would have rather been having contractions in childbirth! Horrible drug!
