This drug was not helping with my pneumonia - after 3 days I was actually worse instead of better. My doctor changed me to a different class of antibiotics.

I have been allergic to Penicillan for as long as I can remember. I got my tonsils out when I was in elementary school. This year I have gotten strep throat three times, even with no tonsils. This medicine has me feeling better from the most serious sore throats. I love it. I'm feeling better in one day, with no side effects.

This is the second time I take this. I have a sinus infection. It seems to work on the infection, I feel better after first day dose(2*250mg). I got a minor stomach upset even when taking it with food, and i get very bad diahrea with watery stool. If I dont have to take a trip, I would probably avoid the drug and just let the infection cure by itself. (I am taking the generic tablet by Teva)

I'm 25 and have an upper respiratory infection. I am on the last day of this medicine and don't feel any better. Fortunately, the only side effect I've had is a mildly upset stomach when taking it w/out food. Last night I bought some sudafed and am feeling better already this morning. Looks like I should've just gotten pseudoephedrine from the start.

I have Sinusitis and Strep Throat. I took this medication and within 24 hours had the diareha (sp), and couldn't breathe. I have never felt so crappy after the first round of antibiotics
