This drug is terrible. Sure it will get rid of sinusitis, but your risk of getting C. Diff is dangerously high. Something needs to be done about the super bug. No one deserves to suffer that much.

Comment:
This medication has worked very well for me. I noticed a difference within the first couple days. Question: Is it possible for this medication to cause me to lose my sense of taste? At first I thought it was a result of the sinus infection, but I just finished the meds this morning and am hoping that my sense of taste returns.
