Metronidazole and milk

Common Questions and Answers about Metronidazole and milk


403153_tn?1297258095 I know that metronidazole is excreted in breast milk and is harmfull for the baby but how much is the resorbtion through vagina? Is it the same like intestinal absorption? Does somebody used this medication during breastfeeding?
Avatar_f_tn My doc prescribed Metronidazole for that, and two days later I had a horrible fever and chills all night long (which I thought was a side effect of the Metronidazole) and my right breast was horribly red and really sore! I also had a cramp in the right side ovary. I went back to the doc, for the ovary pain (thinking the breast thing would resolve itself I stupidly didn't mention it to him).
Avatar_n_tn I know I didn't mention the metronidazole in the first posting, and I apologize. I took the metronidazole after the doxy was completed as she suggested. Everything seemed to be fine for a while, but then I began milking my penis repeatedly, like a lot, throughout the day to check and make sure there was nothing there. After a couple of weeks of this, I began to notice the presence of mucus, which eventually began to become cloudy. Still no pain or spontaneous discharge.
Avatar_n_tn Typically a concentrated stool sample is used. Metronidazole, furazolidone, trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole (TMP-SMX), quinacrine and pentamidine are used to treat this parasite and may be considered if the Cipro is ineffective. The fact that the eosinophils are elevated may be suggestive of a parasite. If the infectious route is a dead end, then it is time to consider endoscopy - either a colonoscopy or flexible sigmoidoscopy.
Avatar_n_tn It seems that since I cut back on my protein shakes w/ milk it has not been as bad. I do eat a South Beach bar that is high in fiber and protein and take vitamins on the days I work so I am not sure if that causes the symptoms. The days that I stay away from the South Beach bar and vitamins, I seem to not have issues. This is so frustrating that no one has received an answer yet. This is the only site I even found doing a ton of searches that even talks about this issues.
Avatar_f_tn The vet said that Rascal will recover, but it will take time and patience. So, today is a very happy day in our lives! He has been given Licorice and Milk Thistle to detox and strengthen his liver and Chinese herbal compound to balance him, its called Ban Xia Bai (subdue internal wind). I was very impressed with the holistic vet clinic (although they offer western medicine as well).
Avatar_n_tn For the last 6 months I have been getting tearing (look like paper cuts) in my vaginal area (1/4 to 1/2 inch long). I get the tears at least once or twice a week and they last from 2-4 days, go away for a few days and then come back. They continue to occur in the same locations; 1. Inside the vaginal lips on the sides almost always in the crease (between the labia minora and majora?) 2. Between the anus and vaginal opening (perineum) 3. Above the clitoris in the "hood" area.
Avatar_n_tn librax,skelaxin,oxycodone,fentanyl patches,and topical metronidazole also. Still the pain is unbearable at times! My colon/rectal stumped, says my fissure has healed, so he has referred me to a dr. at Rush Presbytarian Hospital in chicago where I am to have a colonoscopy sept. 8th with Dr. Theodore Saclarides.Do you think the procedure will be able to determine the problem I am having? Do you have any ideas or suggestions as to my problem?
Avatar_n_tn Wednesday morning I went to a clinic in my town and saw a nurse practictioner. I had a temp. of 99 and they did blood work and said it looked like a bacteria infection. Since I have been bitten by several ticks over the summer they also sent off some blood to test for lyme disease but said it would take 4-5 days for the results. Any way she gave me diphenoxy/atrop 2.5 mg for diarrhea and promethazine 25 mg for nausea, which i really hadn't experienced.
Avatar_n_tn I'm pretty certain she has overgrowth because she is abnormally gassy - burps and farts like you wouldn't believe, can feel milk fermenting in her even, has pain on feeding and is distressed and cries a lot, and doesn't gain weight despite vast amounts of calories (more than enough for catch-up growth, she's under a dietician). Obviously i stopped the lansoprazole.
172826_tn?1423426556 I put my finger inside TMI, sorry, and what I pulled out was nasty, was chunky like sour milk AND was alot so I don't know if that's the discharge once taking the gel-metronidazole-Anyone can help?
Avatar_n_tn The probiotics mentioned can be utilized immediately from the grocery store, Acidophilus milk. But I would print out the whole article and forthwith take it to a gastroenterologist, see can he take over the case, as it takes careful handling. http://www.mayoclinic.
Avatar_n_tn He was on antibiotics for FOUR MONTHS straight before he got better - a high dose of Doxycycline, as well as Flagyl, which is a brand name for Metronidazole, and anti-biotic found useful against anaerobic infections such as clostridium tetani (the bacteria that causes the disease tetanus). I'm going to try this approach.
Avatar_f_tn What changes can I make in my diet.Whats causing this sudden milk intolreance and for how long will I have to avoid drinking milk. Please help, as this is stressing me out!
Avatar_m_tn Vet prescribed Metronidazole and Denamarin with no change after 1 month. I've switched to a low protein, mature dog food (Hill's Science Diet Mature Dog for small breed) about 3 weeks ago but there's been no change. Any suggestions? The vet is currently suggesting a wait & see approach - we're both thinking the dog may have eaten something it shouldn't have and has suffered liver damage.
Avatar_f_tn Is it normal to have occasional creamy cervical mucus that smells like milk ,at a certain time during my cycle every month i have creamy cervical mucus and it smells like milk !!

What can i do to make my cervical mucus not smell like milk and not so creamy it just doesnt seem normal but happens everymonth eventually stops but always comes back the next month im embarrased by it help ..!!
Avatar_n_tn So I administered her the med for 2 days (500mg per day) and after that she started giving off stools with long white parasitic worms in it. I am now giving her milk, water, and oatmeal for fiber (via syringe without the needle) but seems she is not absorbing the food because she quickly excretes them. She is now very thin and I don't know if she will survive. Maybe the medicine is still taking a toll on her. Can anybody help me how to take care of her?
Avatar_n_tn Im looking for a second opinion as to what this is and how i can clear it? Is it possible that it is caused by something such as milk? i have not changed my diet, shampoo, moisturizer, detergent or anything else that comes into contact with my face. I posted a pic below. Thanks for your help.
Avatar_m_tn Our 2yr dog had vomitted several times one evening,seemed week,and had a pale tongue. took him in and there was no abdominal, pain eyes seems clear and white.Normal breathing and heart rate. Xray clear, how ever his liver enzymes were elevated 400, was put on metronidazole and Sulcrate Suspension. Two days later bloodwork showed a climb to 500. Keep in mind that other than intial vomiting days earlier his over all personallity has returned to normal. now been precribed Clavamox.
1095960_tn?1257288220 i went back to my GP and he gave me another round of azithromycin 1g, 2g metronidazole and a 10-day course of doxycycline, 200mg a day in a single dose. again i finished the course, but the symptoms won't go away. he gave me another round of azithromycin 1g. after that i had another 10-day doxycycline course together with 2g metronidazole. still the symptoms are there. i had urinalysis again and they found 1-2hpf of RBC in my urine.
Avatar_n_tn I wanted to clarify the treatment I have had (esp the azithromycin and metronidazole) and the past diagnosis of prostatitis. I'm not sure why prostatitis, if that's what it is, would flare up after the levaquin which has always helped it in the past. And its never caused this split stream. Though its only once or twice a day and never first thing in the morning. Maybe I sit too much now and its sweat?
Avatar_n_tn i ve completed a full course of metronidazole yet i smell some funny scent and it very itchy around my liba mijora sometimes wn i scratch it forms little spots.
Avatar_n_tn I think everything is over and I clean up. I walk out of the toilet and in about 2 minutes time the stomach cramp and the fainting sensation comes back (I've fainted only once to date from this and was out for about 15-20 minutes). 6. When I get back to the toilet I have a really violent Diarrhoea episode in pure liquid state.
Avatar_m_tn Thank you for your response! I have purchased some pro-biotics (acidophilus) a while ago but haven't taken them consistently, just now trying it out. I know the shelf-stable brand I have works because I did the "milk test" and it curdled the milk overnight, plus it's upsetting my stomach a little bit which I read is typical in the beginning of treatment. I've been meaning to try the boric acid.
806984_tn?1285724432 Hello I'm 22 yrs of age and I was recently diagnosed with (BV) Bacteria Vaginosis by my doctor. I've been taking the pliva 334 and Miconazole Nitrate Vaginal cream. I would like to know is there any symptoms for taking this medication cause i have been having extreme abdominal pain but i'm not sure if it from the medication cause im very late on my period. My last period was March 5th. So can someone please help for my concern> Thank You!!!!
Avatar_f_tn Just to let never ever put soap on ur vagaina while ur taking a shower itcould mess up the balance and also it could be wat u eat. Avoid eating milk or soda just water and eat a lot of yogurt that really helps. I hope u get better and I hope this helps!
Avatar_n_tn I had a cystoscopy in Dec 2004, and the urologist noticed all this white debris in my bladder, and put me on Norfloxacin, doxyclcline, and metronidazole. Now my urethra is sore.... Any suggestions?
Avatar_f_tn This will lessen the muscle spasms. Low salt diet and all, I weaned myself off the diurectics. I started taking MILK THISTLE. All liver function tests are normal, no ascites or any other symptons of liver disease, only the liver biopsy to confirm cirrhosis. The doctors do not believe in herbal remedies. They work! I take the brand NOW, Liver Detoxifier & Regenerator, daily along with Traditional Medicinals Every Day Detox Tea. All suffering, please try this. I am now fine!
Avatar_m_tn got a lot of the same symptoms as others on this forum. have increased my consumption of whole milk and seem to be doing better. wondering if i am lacking some vitamin deficiency. Going back to doctor tomorrow. almost 1 yr now and problem still comes and go. nothing major just that sm discomfort every now and then.
1916673_tn?1420236870 Hi Tony! It is human grade ground beef and I was doing some white meat chicken but after reading your article I will switch to dark meat with skin. I have been giving him a 1000 mg fish oil capsule with his breakfast--better to just switch to straight oil--or break it open and sprinkle on his food? This is why this forum is invaluable--I would never have known to suggest to the vet to put him on a phosphorus binder but I can totally see the benefit of that!
