Comments from related studies:
From this study (2 years ago):
One month ago I was prescribed and took 500mg every twelve hours for 5 days.
The cure for the tooth was successful.
A few days ago I developed pains in my lower legs (first), now in my left upper arm.
Pain increases upon sleeping on that side.
How long can I expect these pains to last and what can I do about it?
