I was given Factive (samples) from my doctor to treat bronchitis and I'll NEVER again take this medicine. I was on the drug for 5 days and had no issues, but on the 7th day I started itching in the middle of the night and by morning I was covered from head to my knees with a SEVERE rash.<br><br>I was lucky I was able to get in to see my doc bright and early today. He put me on Prednisone, but it seems to be doing nothing for me, at this early point. He also told me to use Zyrtec & Benedryl with the Prednisone. <br><br>I look like a freak and I ITCH like crazy. I'm depressed because after reading all the posts, I am worried that the itch and rash is going to be around for a bit and this itch is way beyond uncomfortable...I am totally miserable.<br><br>I'd stay away from this drug at all costs.
