25 Sep 2012 The drug is very effective in treating sore throat and tonsillitis. On the second day of treatment the swelling in my tonsils were gone. But on the third day and onwards I began to develop oral ulcers near the throat which were so painful and bothersome. Whenever I eat, the stinging sensation on my throat was really terrible. It really affected my eating habits and the quantity of food I eat.

12 Oct 2009 This is being given to my child to fight a MRSA infection that required surgery. We are hoping to get her switched out of it if her MRSA is susceptible to something else, as the side effects are really unpleasant. Her finger and toe joints are swelling and itchy; she throws up unless given anti-nausea meds; she's not eating; she sleeps a ton. That said, MRSA is also very unpleasant so sometimes you have to do what you have to do.
