Side Effects
During the medication I had loose/frequent stools but nothing painful just annoying.

Additional Thoughts
After I completed the 10 days (2 pills a day) the cramping got worse and loose stools turned to diarrhea. I'm only off the meds 3 days now and its gotten progressively worse. Hoping probiotics will begin to replenish my gut soon.

Side Effects
I usually have diarrhea from antibiotics,and taking such a big dose I was afraid that would happen. So far after being on this for 3 days, my sinus infection symptoms are getting better and no intestinal problems. I do think it is creating a yeast infection, that is my only complaint.
