I had a root canal and four days later was till having constant dull ache. My dentist put me on this for three days and the pain started going away the first day. No side effects at all, very happy with the results.

After suffering over a month with strep-throat and a sinus infection I had immediate relief with this med. However, it raised my blood glucose amount and I had some painful foot swelling. On a positive note, it did reduce my hunger cravings. I actually lost weight!

I am taking this 4mg, 6 day pack to clear up a sinus infection. The first night I had trouble sleeping and woke up with my face looking like I had a sunburn. The worst side-effect is the feeling of pain and fullness in my stomach. I am hungry but don't want to eat as that makes it worse. I will not take this drug again unless absolutely necessary.

I'm taking this drug along with an antibiotic for an infection in my tooth. My endo started a root canal but was unable to finish due to inflammation and infection. I am now pain free and am not swollen. I haven't had any side effects and am on Day 4 of a 6-day pack.
