I got an infection from ingrown toenail, went to a dermatologist and got a prescription for this drug, but after coming home and looking it up on the internet, the sides look horrendous.
I'm using the ointment he also prescribed, but I went back today, and asked dr to give me a less harsh antibiotic, but he refused, said I should go somewhere else.

So I will.
I didn't take it, and I won't.

After Prednisone and Harvoni, which were necessary, and benefits outweighed the risk/sides, I feel wary of this particular strong drug with a bad rap, when my problem can be resolved with less harsh alternatives!

Thanks for listening, I needed to think outloud!
