Comment:
I am taking this drug for fluid retention in my feet, hands, and stomach. It has reduced the fluid with great results and I am on day 3. I have trouble sleeping so I take Ambien and this drug has kept me awake all night even with the Ambien. I had rather not have the fluid and will catch up with my sleep after taking all medicine. So far I have not experienced any other side effects.

my doctor gave me this for a sinus infection that has been very persistent lasting more than a month. I felt results the first day I took it. I am on day three and feeling better than I have in a long time. I am so grateful that I did not have to do antibiotics and deal with the host of problems that can cause.

Comment:
I was prescribed this drug for hip bursitis. After one full day, I started to experience severe stomach pain and cramping. I was also experiencing major fatigue. I stopped the drug after 1/2 way through day 3. I am not experiencing explosive diarrhea and stomach cramping. This drug is harsh!
