This antibiotic treats only certain bacterial and parasitic infections. It will not work for viral infections (such as common cold, flu). Using any antibiotic when it is not needed can cause it to not work for future infections.
Take this medication by mouth as directed by your doctor, usually once daily. To prevent stomach upset, take this medication with food. The dosage is based on your medical condition and response to treatment. For children, the dosage is also based on weight.
Antibiotics work best when the amount of medicine in your body is kept at a constant level. If you are taking this drug for more than one day, take it at the same time each day.
Please consult your doctor before to take any medication.
