    I was given Vantin for an upper respiratory infection and severe sore throat. I have taken 7 days worth and my throat is worse, rather than better. Now my ears hurt as well.

    When I get a sinus infection that the more common anti-biotics won't get rid of, this will every time.

    My 3 year old was prescribed the solution of this to help treat a recurrent sinus infection. She was on it for 4 days and developed what appears to be an allergic reaction to it. Her legs were both swollen and purple from the back of her knees down and her feet were swollen. We have taken her off this medication.

    I had a UTI and was given 10 pills, (one a day for 10 days)After just 2 pills, the UTI cleared up. I continued taking the full complement of pills and the UTI has not returned.

    I developed a bright red rash on my feet and ankles (after completing the prescribed dose of tablets) which over a four-day period spread up to my thighs and abodomen and back. Then my skin peeled as though from a bad sunburn, even to the palms of my hands A dermatologist prescribed a keratin salve. It took over a month and numerous visits to the dermatologist before all the skin peeled and my body gradually returned to normal. A terrible experience for a man over 90. Keep cephalosporins away from me!
