    I quit taking this medication three days before I was hit by diarrhea and terrific stomach pain. The oral surgeon is convinced it is not the medication. I am 99.9% sure that it is. I have missed more work from this than with the dental surgery. I will never take it again.

    I have taken this medication for bacterial infections with no adverse reactions for 25 years;HOWEVER, this time after taking only one dose, I became nauseated, vomited,dizzy for 3 days. I called my doctor and he immediately stopped the medication and prescribed phenigran.

    This medication has been awful for me to take. It makes me feel like vomiting, and gives me terrible headaches. I made the mistake of taking it before bed and couldnt swallow when I woke up plus nightmares of spiders all night. This morning I found sores all over my mouth and and lips.

    I took Doxycycl hyc which i think is generic for Vibramycin. My school (im 21 in college) nurse prescribed it for me because i had a bad flu-i dont remember feeling so nauseous last week-but my last 2days have been horrible-i have one day left but at least my flu was gone-it was my worst flu i have had too. good luck!
