Time Taken: 6 days days

Reason: foot infection Date: 22 February 2010
Side Effects
I stopped taking Sporanox after 6 days & didn't care whether or not the slight fungal infection on the sole of my right foot was cured or not. I experienced serious side effects from this drug and caution anyone reading this to seek other remedies other than this drug. Unfortunately most folks will revert to the internet after experiencing problems instead of being aware of them before taking the medication. I am still feeling the adverse side effects 3 days after quitting. Nausea, stomach pain, head aches dizziness bitter taste in mouth, diarrhea, dark brown urine, loss of appetite, lethargy, weakness, shaking of the extremities & an overall feeling of knowing this drug is absolutely dangerous!

Additional Thoughts
I had lower spine surgery 4 months ago & was on every pain killer/anti inflammatory anti biotic etc etc & never had a side effect. Please be aware of potential side effects - I experienced them all & have never had side effects with any medication other than this one.
