How To Use
  • This medication may be taken with food if stomach upset occurs.
  • Shake well before using.
  • Take each dose followed by fluids.
  • Antibiotics work best when the amount of medicine in your body is kept at a constant level.
  • Do this by taking the medication at evenly spaced intervals throughout the day and night.
  • Continue to take this medication until the full prescribed amount is finished even if symptoms disappear after a few days.
  • Stopping the medication too early may allow bacteria to continue to grow resulting in a relapse of the infection.

Side Effects

  • If these symptoms continue or become severe, inform your doctor.
  • If you develop diarrhea while taking this medication, notify your doctor.
  • Do not take any nonprescription medications to treat diarrhea without first consulting your doctor or pharmacist.
  • Unlikely but report promptly dark urine, yellowing eyes/skin or mental/mood changes.
  • In the unlikely event you have an allergic reaction to this drug, seek medical attention immediately.
  • Symptoms of an allergic reaction include rash, itching, swelling, dizziness or trouble breathing.
  • Use of this medication for prolonged or repeated periods may result in a secondary infection (e.g., oral, bladder or vaginal yeast infection).
  • If you notice other effects not listed above, contact your doctor or pharmacist.

Precautions

  • If you have had liver disease, jaundice (yellowing of the skin or eyes), kidney disease or a history of colitis or stomach problems, tell your doctor before taking this drug.

Additional Thoughts
I've taken this drug once before, but I don't remember experiencing half as many side effects as I have this time around. I'm on day 3 and I feel even worse than I did before I went to the clinic in the first place. I can tell my body is withdrawing (clammy, sweaty, overheating, cold sweats, shaking, twitching, constant sadness, gagging) because after reading online this morning about other experiences, I refuse to continue my prescription. I'm never taking Biaxin again.
