    Within 4 hours of the first dose I had a loose stool (uncommon for me), with 12 hours EXTREME diarrhea. I have been so sick with the sinus infection I don't want to stop the antibiotic and have started using Pepto-Bismol to get relief, I hope all of this works.

    This is the first time I have ever taken this medication and the last. I can tolerate it but I have an upset stomach on and off all day. It worked fast to relieve my symptoms of my sinus infection but the upset stomach isn't worth it.

I return for a CT scan ... Show Full Comment

    I, too, wish I read some reviews of this antibiotic before taking it for a SEVERE bacterial sinus infection. After only three doses (500mg twice a day) I began having NASTY stomach pains, disgustingly smelly gas, nausea and very loose stools. By the fourth day, my sinus infection was getting better but I then began experiencing extreme anxiety - something I have never had while taking any other a ... Show Full Comment
