After taking this 4 days, it has caused my whole mouth and throat to be covered with thrush. My symptoms never disappeared. I have never experienced a discomfort like this in my mouth and throat.

I was diagnosed with a middle ear infection, and sore throat. I developed horrible diarrhea! I was able to take only 5 days of this medication, and still am experiencing the side effects!!
