Comments from related studies:
From this study (3 months ago):
Been going on for about 1 week. No insurance so I can't go to doctor right now. Did recently recover from strep throat, by using Amoxicillin. I also drank grapefruit juice and orange juice while sick, while taking all above medications. Any suggestions?
From this study (3 years ago):
Symptoms slightly improved when I went off the medication, but never completely resolved. Repeated reporting of urinary symptoms resulted in diagnosis of bladder cancer.
