Good for you. Have a cookie.


But really... there's no cookie. And if there was, you wouldn't get one.

its fairly normal its just for bacterial infection

Common adverse drug reactions (≥1% of patients) associated with use of the penicillins include diarrhea, nausea, rash, urticaria, and/or superinfection (including candidiasis). Infrequent adverse effects (0.1–1% of patients) include fever, vomiting, erythema, dermatitis, angioedema, seizures (especially in epileptics), and/or pseudomembranous colitis

Don't forget the insanely large chance of getting ED.

Pseudomembranous colitis is an infection of the colon often, but not always, caused by the bacterium Clostridium difficile. Still, the expression "C. diff colitis" is used almost interchangeably with the more proper term of pseudomembranous colitis. The illness is characterized by offensive-smelling diarrhea, fever, and abdominal pain. It can be severe, causing toxic megacolon, or even fatal.

Less than 1%. How stupid would you be to believe that you'll end up with even one of those. You realise that is just there so that if anyone does get those symptoms that the company can't be sued. The chances of getting one symptom is miniscule even.

I'm allergic to it.



me too.

i didnt have to take anything before i got mine out. im guessing they just want you to do it to reduce the risk of infection.

I think it just keeps bacteria from dividing. It's the most commonly used antibiotic, most people are fine.
