I started a 5 day pack on 2/21/09, prescribed by a walk-in clinic. Day 10 I broke out in rash all over my body and ran to my primary physiscian who said I had to wait it out with Benedryl. I will NEVER take this again. I still have a lingering sinus infection so it didn't even clear that up.

I found out that I am allergic to this drug. I had taken Cipro before without any reaction.

Sinus infection is gone, and NOW I know why my physician prescribed steroids: I followed a five-day regimen, and on day 8 I have gotten an extremely disturbing rash. Now that I have read the kind review the rest of you have posted, I will never again take this medication. I am also looking forward to speaking very curtly with my physician.

Comment from: No to FACTIVE 5, 25-34 on Treatment for less than 1 month (Patient) Published: February 14

I developed a rash on my legs during the 2nd dose of taking Factive 5. After finishing the pack, the rash then spread to my torso, arms, and neck. It got rid of my infection, but left me with this rash that slowly goes away. I WILL NEVER AGAIN TAKE FACTIVE!
