User Comments about Flucloxacillin
16 Mar 2017 Cleared my skin infection immediately, however after a couple of days I developed the rare side effect of strong pain in my groin area, which made it difficult to walk with a slight limp.

09 Oct 2015 Awful indigestion started after I took second tablet of flucloxacillin. Nothing relieves it, it's constant discomfort, painful when food goes down so I'm not eating much at the moment. I've stopped taking this antibiotic now after I went back to see a different GP and he said I don't need antibiotics, hooray!
