Paula, Hollywood FL - 04/09/2018

I had a raging Uti and was prescribed this due to my allergies & resistance to many other drugs. I was given a shot in Drs office and 24hrs later took oral dose.
Within 6 hrs I started with severe watery diarrhea followed by nausea and headache.
The diarrhea lasted over 4days along with the nausea and headache. I dont know what was worse the uti or the side effects of drug.
