Take this medication by mouth as directed by your doctor, usually once or twice daily. You may take this medicine with food if stomach upset occurs. Dosage is based on your medical condition and response to therapy. In children, the dosage is also based on weight. For the best effect, take this antibiotic at evenly spaced times. To help you remember, take this medication at the same time(s) every day. Continue to take this medication until the full-prescribed amount is finished, even if symptoms disappear after a few days. Stopping the medication too early may allow bacteria to continue to grow, which may result in a relapse of the infection. Inform your doctor if your condition persists or worsens.
Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, stomach pain, or dizziness may occur. If any of these effects persist or worsen, notify your doctor or pharmacist promptly.

This medication may rarely cause a severe intestinal condition (Clostridium difficile-associated diarrhea) due to a resistant bacteria. This condition may occur while receiving therapy or even weeks to months after treatment has stopped.

Tell your doctor right away if you develop: persistent diarrhea, abdominal or stomach pain/cramping, blood/mucus in your stool.
