Hello, Joe! How are you?

If you think you have an infection that requires an antibiotic, it would be best to see your doctor for a new prescription. Medications tend to lose effectiveness over time, which means that this one may no longer completely eradicate the bacteria, which puts you at risk of developing antibiotic resistant bacteria.

The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea.

Is there anything else I can help with?
