Was having dental work done and told to start the day before procedure. It took about 6 days before I got diarrhea and upset stomach but since I only had a couple of days to go I took the rest.

My dentist prescribed this for a tooth infection, prior to extraction. By day 2 I was overwhelmingly itchy, had a dry and swollen throat, felt sick all over and extremely tired. Pharmacist said it was an allergic reaction and to discontinue use immediately. I will not take a chance with this one again.
