How To Use

  • Do not take any nonprescription medications to treat diarrhea without first consulting your doctor or pharmacist.

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.
