    I get anxious about taking meds I haven't had before, so the reviews on this were terrifying but it worked really well for me. I started feeling a bit wobbly and sick when I tried to be active but when I took it easy I had no side effects except a slight stomach ache now and then. Cleared up my infection in three days, would take again if I needed to.

    I rarely, if ever leave a review for much. But after my experience taking this antibiotic, I am going on as many sites as I can to inform others about this drug. I was prescribed 100mg of Microbid every 12 hours for 7 days for a UTI. I am not sensitive to antibiotics I have taken in the past, i.e. amoxicillin, Cipro, Z-pack. However, this antibiotic made me feel awful. I didn't see any cha ... Show Full Comment

    This medication did cure my UTI, BUT I was extremely tired wanted to sleep all the time. Very weak. On day 2 I woke up and could not see. My eyes were blurry for quite some time. When I say blurry, I am saying I could not see to walk around safely. Could not see my hands. DO NOT TAKE THIS MEDICATION.

    The side effects keep getting worse...from headache to achiness to fatigue and joint pain. Never again!
