haha mannnn ive put several posts describing my issues with this dumb medication. if u have a sensitive stomach do not take this medicine. let me tell u what i have been through the past 5 months. i took it for pid- the infection kept coming pack. after the 3rd time they prescribed me this med this is when the damage really begun. i developed really bad gastritis. the upper area in my stomach was swollen. i had developed an acid problem and lived on prevacid for the next 3 months. i wasn't really eating that much so i wasn't noticing anything else. then- it finally went away but came back when i took vicodin for a miscarriage. went away again after about 3 weeks. then i was eating more and i noticed i was getting really super gassy. belching and passing gass a lot. but nothing too bad i just took malox and i felt better. for awhile i lived off malox and pepto bismol. thought i had an ulcer a couple times because my stomach was burning pretty bad. it sucks cuz i have no health insurance at all so i cant go see someone who could actually help me. so i just dealt with it. after a stressful situation where i had to go to a domestic violence shelter i was miserable. i developed severe diarrhea so much gas so much belching noisy stomach- went to the hospital cuz i couldn't take it anymore. they diagnosed me with c-diff. with out testing me it was a guess. no doctor would really take the time to figure out what was wrong. i took the flagyl they prescribed and was feeling a little better but a month later back to the same problem and i went again but to a different hospital and they told me i had a uti infection. great that means more antibiotics to take. i lied and told them i was allergic to doxycycline so they wouldn't prescribe that to me again LOL but i got something called bactrim and boy did i get the worst panic attacks of my life. went back to the hospital because my stomach still wasn't getting better. i bought some probiotics and been taking those ever since and been feeling a little better. when i went to the hospital for the last time the doctor felt my stomach and he says he doesn't think i have c-diff cuz i also wasn't having diarrhea anymore but the main concern was my stomach. i want to eat again and i just want to feel normal. i dont know what it feels like. so the doc told me to continue to take the probiotics and eat life. that was a couple days ago. they think im really low on good bacteria thats why i haven't been able to digest food right and im gassy and belching. im feeling bad right now but overall i been feeling better just taking it one day at a time. never ever expected this from something thats supposed to help u did but it did wat it was designed to do kill ALL my bacteria. good and bad now im just feeling like crap but i look up to god and trying to be positive exercise helps to get all the air out my stomach and after i burp the indigestion feeling isn't so bad. for all u people who are suffering hopefully this doesn't happen to you. i guess i was asking for it because i did almost everything wrong while on the medication. like i layed down after i took it. i only took it with a piece of bread- bad idea same thing as taking it with nothing- it gave me a migraine so i took it with excedrin -bad mixture- didn't take with enough water- etc. dont be a dummy like me and half the time doctors are idiots and wrong so technically ur on ur own with meds. and if ur worrying about ur illness it makes it worse. i think my stress kept my gastritis around a lot longer than it needed to be. take care of urself people im fighting for my life back one day at a time i dont want anyone to make the same mistake as i did. feel better!
