Reviews for Penicillin v potassium
For Streptococcal Infection: "Just took my 3rd dose of Penicillin VK (I'm on one pill twice a day for 10 days). My fever and headache is gone and my throat pain is no longer a 10, probably a 5 now. But I'm also on prescription ibuprofen she sent with too."

Penicillin VK (penicillin v potassium) for Bacterial Infection: "I have a bacterial infection in my face due to an infected tooth and was prescribed this medication. I have been taking the medication now for 52 hours and have no sign of relief. I just hope its working. I cant take the pressure on the left side of my head for much longer before a visit to the ER."

Penicillin VK (penicillin v potassium) for Strep Throat: "I just started this antibiotic yesterday and my lymph nodes have reduced in size (from kidney bean to pea) and I can now eat without severe pain. I've had bad experience with things such as amoxicillin and Azithromycin because of serious stomach upset, even when taken with food. But on penicillin vk I haven't had any side effects. All I know is this penicillin is kicking my strep throats butt and I love it."

For Strep Throat: "I had strep throat. I began a 10 day course of penicillin. I began to experience all the major side effects including diarrhea, heart palpitations, low pulse, fatigue, and anxiety just to name a few. Needless to say the strep went away. But next time I get it I'll request another treatment."

Penicillin VK (penicillin v potassium) for Strep Throat: "I started feeling a little bit better on the 2nd day after starting the Penicillin-VK. I had a little bit of loose stools, but I believe that happens with most antibiotics--some much worse than others. I was much better after taking all of the medication--but once you get Strep--you are prone to it. I need to have my tonsils removed--they are enormous and just catching bacteria which causes me to continue to get Strep. "
