    I've never had a reaction to any medication until now. After 1 day I was getting horrible stomach cramping, loss of appetite, nausea, tired. I stopped after day 3 but I'm still experiencing the same issues. I wouldn't recommend this medication.

    I took this for ear and sinus infection--severe abdominal pain even after cutting the dosage back to 1/4--after day 4 I stopped--never reacted to plain amoxicillin-don't know why it is mixed with other ingredients--will not take this again--only plain amox or cipro for me
