    Hi Pauline

    I dont wish to panic you but please do read the other forums on this site regarding thie antibotic. I personally took a 5 day course back in January and experience horredous side effects that well after the 5 days to time to subside. I had a reoccured Uti and refused to retake this med so was given another that was much more kinder and less side effects. I wishyou better and speedy recovery.
