    i am taking this medication for post foot surgery for which i have external fixators to prevent infection in the bone and surrounding areas. i am happy with the results overall, however i do have some gastric burning if i don't take it with food. otherwise i am very satisfied with the results of keeping the risk for infection to a bare minimum.
