10 May 2011 One lethal dose. 750mg. Next morning could not get out of bed, right side in joint area severely hurt. Has been ever since along with lower back pain and leg. I HATE this drug. To top it off I called office and they said to continue taking it. Took it for four days total to treat pneumonia which I did not have. My Dr. saw me three days later and said to stop immediately. What can I do? or should I do?

24 Jun 2010 I took this for my bout with pneumonia and it definitely helped clear out the rest of my infection. I trust this drug as a dependable antibiotic.

01 Jun 2010 Anaphylactic shock here. I had to be rushed to the hospital. My face swelled up until the eyes were slits; the tongue swelled; and welts were all over my body. My tongue swelled within a few minutes of injestion. I was lucky to get to the hospital in time.

03 Jan 2010 Been on it 4 days. Black stools, severe heart palpitations and dizziness. Can't sleep. Have read up on side effects on internet. All of these are possible and then some. No muscle/tendon problems, though. Will contact physician on Monday to discontinue this med.
