Hi Ive just finishes a 7 day course 2000 units a day,and i had the"runs" really bad, but no back pain!!

I did have some stomach problems on 2nd day and took actimel which helped. The back pain isn’t great and can’t wait until course finished taking for external ear infection as drops didn’t work so doctor said will have to take this.

With my luck I will probably be as constipated as hell after running to the loo with the slightest tummy rumble! Hope your ear infection clears up soon !!

I didn't have back pain, but enormous amounts of heartburn. I came off it after 3 days, and for them have me ear drops, which haven't worked so far.

I had 2 lots of eardrops before the antibiotics they worked at first and then the symptoms came back again after a week. Good luck and hope they work soon.

Hi I had that one some time ago and it made me ill , think it was the runs. It was put on my adverse reaction list so its not prescribed again. Does it mention anything in the patients leaflet about backache ? as it might not be the tablet just a coincidence. Take care.

Thank you. The leaflet mentions joint aches etc but mainly digestive issues. Have 3 days left now which can’t come soon enough.
