After reading the reviews of other people's experiences taking this medication, I was absolutely terrified!! I had to take this for vaginosis and trichomoniasis. This was the first time I had ever had to experience something like this so I was already scared and the reviews made it even worse. If you are reading through the reviews terrified, please allow me to reassure you that you will be fine! It cured me completely and here I am months later living a happy life! Just be sure to avoid anything with ALCOHOL OR PROPYLENE GLYCOL. Like mouthwash and some toothpastes etc. I do wonder if that had something to do with some people's said side effects. Read ingredients for everything. Take it with FOOD and stay HYDRATED! You got this!! ??

I am taking this medicine for BV and I am noticing a huge change in my discharge and smell, they are going away??. This medicine does not taste or feel good but the outcomes are really good. Sisters please do not stop taking this medicine if you feel sick after taking it. Somethings that helped me are I am taking it with full meal, drinking lots of water and avoiding sugars and caffeine. Hopefully it works for everyone and god gives you the strength to bear.

I was prescribed to take Flagyl 500mg/tablet 3 times daily. At first, I thought that the nausea was due to my vertigo. But it progressed on the third day. I had the worst headache in my entire life that I had to try every non-pharmaceutical treatment that I know and still they didn't relieved the pain. I also has GERD but not to the point that I had to vomit, the acid was too strong. Urine discoloration was fine but it the gastrointestinal side effects and the headache was too intense. I even avoided every foods that may aggravate my condition, and filed for sickness leave. The whole experience was traumatic.

Comment from: MS 45-54 Transgender less than 1 month Caregiver Published: July 13

I was placed on Amix, Clarithromycin, Omeorazole, and Flagyl for very mildly symptomatic, biopsy proven gastritis due to H. pylori. From the first dose, there was nausea and HA. Day #2 burg were worse and a horrid bitter taste appeared, along w almost anything tasting bitter. Any food or fluid made nausea even worse, to the point on inability to sleep. I tries taking the antibiotics 2 hours apart but once I took the Metronidazole (Flagyl), the symptoms started within 30 minutes. I do not consume alcohol and am in a bland diet. I am day #4 and can’t go on taking this antibiotic. I hope the treatment without it can get rid of H. pylori … awaiting GI doc’s input.

I was diagnosed with IBS over 25 years ago and about 15 years ago I was diagnosed with Diverticulitis and I have been on Cipro and Bactrim DS but I had to go to the ER and they immediately put me on Flagyl and from then on I am on the Flagyl every time I have a Diverticulosis flare-up and by God's Grace I have not had any side effects. I have SLE Lupus and I never know when I will have a Diverticulosis flare-up but I know that I had side effects from the Cipro and Bactrim DS.

Comment from: Notsobad 25-34 Female less than 1 month Patient Published: August 27

I was terrified to take this drug after reading the reviews. However, I just finished my last dose yesterday, and found the side effects were not as bad as described. Side effects experienced included: loss of appetite, nausea and metallic taste in mouth. Nausea could be mitigated by taking the pill with a full meal (which was a little hard given the appetite loss, but overall doable). I also experienced some fatigue after taking the pill. However, this and the majority of stomach issues were gone by day 3. Overall, it was no worse than any other strong antibiotic I’ve taken in the past.

Was concerned about the side effects but I experienced none at all. I also took this with probiotics as antibiotics can kill all bacteria (good and bad). Was effective.

I was terrified to take this drug after reading the reviews. However, I just finished my last dose yesterday, and found the side effects were not as bad as described. Side effects experienced included: loss of appetite, nausea and metallic taste in mouth. Nausea could be mitigated by taking the pill with a full meal (which was a little hard given the appetite loss, but overall doable). I also experienced some fatigue after taking the pill. However, this and the majority of stomach issues were gone by day 3. Overall, it was no worse than any other strong antibiotic I’ve taken in the past.

I took 500 mg, 3 times a day for 10 days, a total of 30 pills to treat IBS-D (diarrhea), SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth) and possible parasite. Almost every day I had mild nausea, bloating ,dizziness, fatigue, frequent urgent stools, dry mouth and headaches (it could have also been from my anxiety about taking it). I had violent vomiting after the 4th pill, and diarrhea after the 15th pill. My doctor then told me to reduce the dose to twice a day instead of three times a day and I felt a lot better and was able to finish the dose. You must take it after a full meal to avoid nausea. I coated the pill in molasses and drank it with milk to mask the taste. I was so nervous to take it after the horrible reviews I read, but it was manageable, just felt like I had a cold/flu for 2 weeks. However, I would not take it again, it didn’t work for me in the long run.

Horrible side effects with this medication. Flu like symptoms with what I would describe as a crushing headache. Neck pain, yellowing of the eyes, nausea, diarrhea, cramps. Never again.
