Advice & Tips: This medication worked well for what it was prescribed for, but with me having a low immune system and it having a steroid in it I started to get infections under my breast. The only time I get these is when I am on a steroid or I come in contact with Strep. I stopped taking it because of this reason. I also notice while I was taking it that I felt "unwell" like I was sick, but had no symptoms of really being sick except for a cough and a runny noise. I didn't have this before taking this medication.
