This medication is unavailable in the U.S. and I am sorry to say that other countries do not regulate their prescription drugs as strictly as the FDA does. That said, finding information on them is very difficult, since there are no databases which list them all, like there are for U.S. prescription drugs.

The only thing I can suggest is that you try asking your doctor or pharmacist for more information.

i am on a prescribed course of calvepen 666mg, one to be taken 4 times a day.
i went to the doctor with painfully swollen glands and all over body aches.
it seems to be clearing up quite nicely. however, i am experiencing some strong side effects. the tablets seem to knock me out for hours, sleeping for 12 hours at a time.. really deep sleep. and when i wake up i feel rather nauseous and disorientated... it usually passes after a while, and i'm sure that's just because the meds are working!

I wa prescribed this for swollen glands, tonsilitis and all over aches. I take four a day and it makes me quite tired, slightly unbalanced and when I sleep I sleep for hours and it is also very deep.

I was also prescribed these for sore throat and chest infection. Could not understand why I was so extremely tired and somewhat disorientated the last few days. Now I know, must be a side effect of tabs.

Yeah, I am glad to have this website as I had a sore throat and I was adviced to take those. I have taken antibiotics before but they never made me feel dizzy like those do. Well about the tiredness, I think all antibiotics tend to bring this effect.

These tablets done nothing for my throat, I had to take a trip back the doctors and I prescribed Klacid Forte 500MG tabs. These seem to be working, still have two days to go.

On these tablets 4 a day for an initial 7 days but could be extended for a second week I was told. They were subscribed for tolsillities, swollen glands and general flu like symptoms. Took about 12hours before they began to kick in. On them 3 days now and glad to say they are working. Am tired but have no dizziness!

Rachel Says:

I literally just got these today and supposedly I have to take 6 a day? my throats not even that bad? Could this be wrong? I think the chemist mean to write 3 times a day but said take two 3 times a day?

Dana Says:

Rachel-- count out how many pills you have total. If taking them 6 times a day equals less than 5 days, it might be wrong. I'm not a doctor, but 6 seems like a lot.

Have also been prescribed them, 4 a day for 5 days. This is my third antibiotic in a month and a half. The doctor refuses to give me an antibiotic for more than 5 days, and I swear that's why I'm still sick. Does anyone else think 5 days is a little short?

I just completed a course of calvepen 666mg 4 a day for 10 days for scarlet fever (a throat infection) and only side effects were really dry skin and less energy. No difference in sleeping. My doc did say u need 10 days of tablets to totally clear it when there's a bacterial throat infection (strep bacteria)
