“I had deep bronchitis or pneumonia. Took the medication from an online doctor. Showed great results right away for a week. (prescription: 2 tablets twice a day for 2 weeks). So I decided to go out for just an hour to the library and then I got chills followed by a high fever so I continued to take the medication but did not work so doctor suggested Azithromycin 6 pack I don't see much improvements in my fever by 2nd day. Taking these two medications now as my doctor wants me to complete it!”
“I caught a case of syphilis that left me very miserable for over 2 weeks. I was a z pack and those never seem to help, then I was given doxycycline and that seemed to help a little but didn't quite do the trick.. then I was given this and so far it's helping.”
“It effectively put me in the hospital with c-dif a month after. Could of died. Not happy with this drug. As it killed every bacteria and the good bacteria too.”

“Diagnosed with bronchial pneumonia two days ago. Had a fever of 102 at that point. Within two days, I don't have a fever. I am beginning to cough up the infection where I struggled before. I have to be open and add that I was also given prednisone to take. Between the two, at the end of the second day, I am beginning to feel better. Still a ways off but I feel a difference.”
“I always get bronchitis in February. Last February was no exception but it actually went into pneumonia very quickly. Probably had something to do with fact I was moving that week...Worked too hard and got no rest. Had no choice, went to Urgent care and as I said I get bronchitis every yr. Always take Z-pack, good cough syrup and an atomizer and rest and get well. This time they gave me Augmentin. 875 mg. twice a day for 10 days and Steriod round and cough medication. Long story short ended up in ER with Jaundice. and weakness that was indescribable. Spent a wk. in hospital pushing fluids as this was a rare reaction to the Augmentin. Very scary drug. Tested me for everything. Dr was convinced that it was a reaction to the Augmentin.”
“This worked wonders on my pneumonia. I had pneumonia for 9 days, started Augmentin, and felt great after 3 more days.”
