    I have been taking this medication for about a month now. It was fine for awhile but recently I've been getting really sick to my stomach.

    After taking this drug for a few days I started to get sore throat. 1.5 weeks into it and I have to stop completely as it is difficult and painful to swallow, have a sore throat pretty bad, and have lost my voice.
