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.

An extreme case, taken for asthma unfortunately my body got addicted to it, and was unable to stop taking the drug without increased asthma attacks which then required ever increasing doses to get my asthma under control ending up at 120mg per day for 18 months, side effects were extreme and to numerous to list. However once again this only happens in very cases.

I was put on this for asthma since my inhalers were not doing the trick. Problem is that I am very sensitive to medications and I am only on day one an I am having severe arm and leg cramping, but on the plus side I am able to breath better. Doctor now put me on a lower dose hopefully this will help with the cramping
