    Started taking this med on sunday, I am starting to feel sick to my stomach even after eating. Not sure if its the drug or the infection. Head pressure, ear pressure and feels like my head is full of water. Trying to stick it out due to no insurance. ER doc gave me this med after CT scan showed no evidence of brain aneurysm.

    This is the only antibiotic that will work for me. I usually have a couple days of side effects but I have taken it so many times that my body has gotten use to it. I also make sure I eat when taking the medicine.

    as long as I take a probiotic and eat yogurt every day during the treatment, the diarrhea is not as bad. Also, I must take it with food or I have severe vomiting. but it worked good against a sinus infection

    No side effects noted after four days of taking this medication. By the way: save your money if you are prescribed a "Z-Pak", my personal experience is that it is NOT near as effective as a 7-10 day antibiotic, such as Augmentin.

    It cleared up a very persistent sinus infection promptly.It did cause diarrhea which kept me grounded to the house.This can cause an unexpected hardship for most people.I had the sinus infection for a very long time thinking it was allergies,the treatment was worth the inconvienence for me.
