Hi..did doc suspect C-Diff? If so, let him know right away you've stopped the Flagyl. Stool tests will confirm, and clindamycin is the top "offending antibiotic" for causing C-Diff, which is treated with Flagyl or Vancomycin. The numbness could be a side effect from the Flagyl - nasty med but it is what you need to be taking if in fact C Diff is the culprit. Best of luck to you.
I just finished 20 days on flagyl and cipro for colitis and diviticulities....Just a word of advice....be sure to eat when taking medication...The Rx made me so nausous but as soon as i took my last pill I felt so much better the next day...still can't add fiber back to my diet yet but am doing better...I've been sick for almost 4 weeks now.
1. Will Flagyl relieve the symptoms? 2. Is this type of colitis curable or will I always have it? 3. Is there a special diet I must follow to prevent it from coming back? 4. IS alcohol intake ( socailly speaking) casue problems as well? I am a 49 yo male who has been taking digestive medicines for years now.. Protonix is the current one prescribed after an upper endoscopy revealed an acid reflux condition I appreciate the advise..
Saw gastrointerologist in early September. She suspected bacteria because of the history of Clindamycin AND a clear Sigmoidoscopy (to 88cm) that I had in December of '04 for an unrelated issue that turned out not to be a problem. GI gave me 3 weeks of Flora-Q probiotic in September. Also had an abdominal X-ray in September when I had a bad lower chest pain. It showed nothing interesting other than gas in my upper left colon. Before August, I was completely normal.
-- azithromycin (Zithromax) and atovaquone (Mepron) for 4 months -- clindamycin (Biaxin) and cefdinir (Omnicef) for 5 months -- stopped due to edema -- metronidazole (Flagyl) and azithromycin (Zithromax) for 4 months + 1 week -- stopped (dr's orders) due to severe intestinal inflammation from Flagyl Now 3 days after stopping the meds, I can feel the disease symptoms creeping slowly back, and want to figure out (before seeing my dr again) what tricks there are to tolerate these meds again s
After my hospital stay, I was sent home with Clindamycin and Ampicillin capsules to take for 5 days. I had diarrhea for 4 days straight and called the Dr. She told me to stop taking the medicines immediately. About 4 days later, I was stricken with severe abdominal cramping, nausea and watery diarrhea. I was rushed to the emergency room and had CT scans, abdominal XRays, and stool samples taken. I was diagnosed with C. diff.
The doctor did not order any lab tests, didn't do much of an exam (just felt his abdomen) and based on his symptoms and the Clindamycin usage thought it was probably Clostridium difficile and ordered a prescription for Flagyl. WE're not sure he should be on Flagyl without further testing so he decided not to take it until he saw gastroenterologist.
It was discovered that I have endometritis with specifically plasma cells in the endometrial stroma. I was prescribed Flagyl and Metrocondazinole (sorry on the name can’t remember). I took the antibiotics for 1 week and after the treatment the plasma cells and inflammation did not go away from the endometrium. Now my fertility doctor is puzzled and wanted to place me on Clindamycin, but I’m concerned on the stress it may put on my system.
Some things which may cause this imbalance to happen are the use of antibiotics and steroids, hormonal and chemical changes (natural or unnatural, such as contraceptives), diabetes and other illnesses that cause us to have a lowered immunity. How you can go about treating your yeast infection is up to you.
Diagnosis can be confirmed after pelvic examination and microscopic examination of the vaginal discharge. Treatment is by metronidazole((Flagyl, MetroGel) and clindamycin (Cleocin) which are available under prescription. They are available as pills or vaginal gels or creams. Please do not use any vaginal douches. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.

For pain relief I took oxycodone/apap, brand name percocet, and for the infection in my face that set in prior to the root canal they gave me both metronidazole (flagyl) and clindamycin ( cleocin ). Over the last four days the swelling went down and the pain subsided. But this morning, nine days after the pain started and five days after I started taking drugs, a very unusual floater developed in my left eye. I noticed it shortly after I stepped onto the tennis court this morning.
You could check the sensitivities of the organism in the urine to see if it is sensitive to Flagyl or Clindamycin--if so, one antibiotic would treat both problems--that seems very reasonable to me. You may need to be evaluated for why you are having so many UTIs too. Have you tried vegetable oil as a lubricant? Sounds a little silly, ( I wouldn't mix with vinegar!) but it rarely causes reactions!
Commonly used antibiotics for dental infections are amocicillin, erythromycin family, clindamycin, and flagyl. Flagyl is used mainly for periodotal pathogens.
MY SON IS BEING TREATED FOR TETANUS. IS FLAGYL AND CIPRO STILL ANTIBIOTICS OF CHOICE?
I had a root canal preformed 3 1/2 weeks ago on a molar, with a crown, for an infection but not fully abscessed. This was not my first root canal so when I began excessive swelling within 6 hours after I knew something was not right. My Endodontist saw me that next morning and removed the temporary filling to allow for the infection/pus to escape. 4 hours later I was even more swollen and it the tissue became hard.
She conferred with my infectious disease doctor (who didn't really believe the swelling but was out of town and could not see me) but that doctor suggested a Levaquin 750 mg and Flagyl 1500mg daily combo. It started working against the infection, but the Levaquin started making me very panicky at night and caused unbearable sleeplessness. I had no reaction to the Flagyl, but it by itself doesn't cover all the bacteria.
Another quick question. Are the suppressant meds considered to be steroids? I'm terrified of steroids and don't want to gain weight. Are you familiar with the side effects?

Also, the infection has been treated with numerous antibiotics (amoxicillin, flagyl, omnicef, augmentin, clindamycin), and all seem to help at first, but only clindamycin has lasting effects. Not even augmentin worked. Any idea on what kind of bacteria would respond to clindamycin but not augmentin?
I drank cranberry juice and took 7 days of clindamycin (antibiotic) and flagyl. They were left over from my H. Pylori infection. Well my wife and I had sex, and now 3 weeks later she is having burning with urination, but she also has no discharge or anything else. I got her some amoxicillin and have been having her drink cranberry juice as well. Could this be a chlamydia or gonorrhea infection? I dont think she is sleeping around, but you never know.
I am having vaginal itching and burning after sex. The itching and burning has been going on since my husband got back from Iraq last month. I did go to the doctor and she put me on Clindamycin twice already. She tells me there is nothing else she can do for me. I am prone to having yeast infections. I am wondering if there is anything that can help this go away because it is driving me NUTS!!!

The best two antibiotics to use for the types of bacteria that usually cause bacterial vaginosis, are Clindamycin and Flagyl (metronidazole). Sometimes women have allergies to specific medications and we need to use others that are less optimal, but the best results are usually achieved with the proper antibiotics for the condition. Good luck!
Soft tissue infection isn't one of them, though. Amoxicillin and clindamycin are more commonly prescribed depending on what your dentist finds and if it is felt to be anaerobic or aerobic bacteria. Please don't mess around with antibiotics! Go to your dentist or medical professional today! He/She is the only one that can give you the correct antibiotic depending on what is found. GOOD LUCK.

I had BV while pregnant, and they gave me Clindamycin (generic for Cleocin) and I had an allergic reaction to it. They then gave me Flagyl, and it cleared it right up. I would try to get a round of oral antibiotics.
Now he wants me to take clindamycin and flagyl. That would be 7 antibiotics a day. Does that sound reasonable? My question is will the antibiotics solve my problem or is it just a temporary fix? Thanks for your help.
im very frustrated and angry because idk what to do anymore ive been treated multiple times with flagyl,diflucan,terazol,gyne lotrimin,doxycycling,monistat,clindamycin both cream and antibiotic,have taken all different probiotics, and i can keep going...and no relief whats so ever im loosing it...how long did it take for your discharge to dissapear?
difficile treatment and the dry mouth went away while on flagyl again but as soon as I went off it, the dry mouth came back and lasted for a good 10 months until I took Sialor, a salivary stimulant. Saliva production gradually came back and remained once quitting Sialor (which should only work while on it and not after quitting... I guess it triggered something?). Not only was my mouth dry but it had this constant thirst that could never be quenched and nothing ever provided relief.
