My doctor put me on this today after I had to call his office about some...side effects....My stomach does NOT like these antibiotics........soo

I can eat stuff like jello, applesauce, rice, bananas, saltienes(sp?) pedialyte and yogurt oh and toast

Once I end treatment I still have to stay on the bland diet for about a week and SLOWLY return to my normal diet.

I can't wait to eat real food again, although I'm afraid to test the waters before hand O.O

I know it's pretty tough, just try to hang in there.  You will be on solids again before you know it. 

feel better

I've never been on it, but I've put my girls on it for stomach problems before.  You're better than me, even if I'm not supposed to I usually eat what I want and let the chips fall where they may.
