So i don't think it's something to worry about too much especially if the symptoms are gone now. Metronidazole have a strong interaction with alcohol and can also have produced the vomiting. Sparks of light again are assosieted with anxiety. Anyway please note that i'm not a doctor and if you have any concern call you doctor.
Avatar_n_tn I'm not sure if this actually works, but my theory on the topic is that although the weaker one may not work too well to begin with, it's still working to get some of it. Once the pain's "resistance" to the medication starts to get broken down a bit, the stronger medication shouldnt have to "break through" that barrier too.
Avatar_n_tn After, I was really worried if either of this (sexual intercourse or the oral sex) would affect my treatment of the BV at all or have an impact on the metronidazole working and its effectiveness? Is it advisable to avoid sex during the course of taking the metronidazole? BTW I don't have any symptoms of BV anymore though (although I am still continuing to take the medicine).
Avatar_n_tn I was told I had BV two weeks ago. I was given 5 tablets of metronidazole to swallow by mouth in one go that evening. I returned to the clinic on a Tuesday and was told some BV remained (half of it had gone). I was then given another 10 metronidazole tablets to take by mouth (one twice a day). The doctor said no alcohol but did not mention anything at all about whether I should refrain from sex.
Avatar_n_tn This may keep the medicine from working properly. Also, oils in the cream and vaginal tablets (but not the vaginal gel) may damage latex (rubber) contraceptive devices (e.g., cervical caps, condoms, or diaphragms), causing them to leak, wear out sooner, or not work properly. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor.
Avatar_m_tn If you have not tested positive then you do not have Trich anymore. I would follow up with your Dr and explore other possible infections.
Avatar_n_tn For over a year now I have suffered from a horrible vaginal odor, profuse vaginal sweating that is hightened when I find myself irritated or working out. I also have burning, and itching. I began this journey by using a towel that belonged to a man that had one identical to mine. After this happened I noticed he had many towels within his bedroom that he used to wipe his genital area due to profuse sweating and the towels had a fungus like or yeast like odor to them.
Avatar_m_tn I was then put on erythromycin for the past week ( 8 250mg pills a day) and i'm not quite sure if its working either. The sensation at the tip of my penis comes and goes but the discharge is still there. My physician told me if this didn't work then he doesn't know what else to do. What should i do to stop the pain and discharge?
Avatar_f_tn You should visit pulmologist to have appropriate tests. Spitting up mucus in the morning obviously is not from not being in a good shape. Asthmatic like symptoms may be triggered by viral infection - do you have any fever or night sweets? Low blood pressure, anemia and low vit B12 may all contribute to lightheadedness, which might contributed to brain fog. What was your vit B12 level? One of the causes of low vit B12 is atrophic gastritis..
Avatar_f_tn my body is trying to heal and that means it is working and working makes everyone tired...right? I took a 2 hr nap today. Unbelievable what that will do for a person. My mind feels clearer too. I love decorating and redecorating and then doing it again and if it isn't just what I want I rebuild it and decorate and redecorate all over again. I seriously think it is a curse that has no anecdote. My house is my creative canvas. Thank you so much you are keeping me sane, you seriously are.
Avatar_n_tn The diet worked for a little while but it's really hard (no flour, no sugar, no corn syrup, etc.) so that didnt last long. I'm actually not experiencing any symptoms of yeast infection or BV right now and the last thing I tried was the Monistat 7 day insert. Try that if you haven't already. Hope this helps!
Avatar_f_tn - Streptococcus Viridans - Bacteroides Gracilis - Haemophilus Influenzae - Hameophilus Parainfluenzae - Neisseria species Which of the bacteria above are not susceptible to Augmentin? I'm trying to figure out with my doctors what antibiotics to take to fight this infection. I am now taking Augmentin XR 1000-62.5, 2 pills, 2x daily to fight off the remaining infection.
641243_tn?1235755684 Nothing happened, and he continued to pace without sleep for the next 7 hours before I took him to my primary physician Tuesday morning. Primary vet said maybe he had a virus and prescribed Metronidazole. We also found a staph infection on a scrape on his knee, seemingly unrelated. Brought him home, had to leave town the next day so I boarded him at the vet. After picking him up 4 days later, they said he did fine, but when I brought him home, he would not eat or drink.
Avatar_m_tn i need help for my wife i gave her std and the treatment that where given to her are not working, what treatment should both undergo. the first doctor told us to take ceforixine axetil, clindamycin, metronidazole tablet and supository. now we went to another doctor just to find out that the medications we took are not the drugs for chlamydia and gonorrhea so she gave us cefixime, ceftriaxone, and azytromycin, still she has the symptoms and im asymptomatic. what should i do to help her.

Avatar_f_tn actually iam also working in a medical field, but i have this coccobacilli, first i just got a genital warts.ant then few months later my doctor asked me to see an ob doctor to help me with my vaginal discharge..to make it short i had take antibiotivs like doxycycline, metronidazole,cefalexin ,amoxicillin as prophylaxis after dewarts.
Avatar_n_tn diff is metronidazole, vancomycin and zyvox. If the vancomycin is not working, you may need to try an alternate antibiotic. Please consult with your physician for more information.
Avatar_f_tn I've had it before and what'd happened is that your body has built up an immunity to the antibiotics and there not working anymore.
Avatar_n_tn I heard sometimes it takes a while to get rid of Symptons improved but are not completely gone. I was also tested for Gonnoreah and Chlamydia, my doctor said that testing for those are normal with a BV diagnosis. Results back today were negative.
Avatar_f_tn Fells like a real bad sunburn, even my eyelids. My neurologist had me on lyrica and it quit working after 6 months, then she put me on 3200 mg neurontin a day and now that has stopped working after 5 months. I have an appt. with her in 10 days. She does not know what I have, except nerve pain .she has done the nerve test with the needles and several other but they come back negative.I am so miserable. Can any one shed some light on this?
Avatar_n_tn i've tried clostil for ovulation afterwards when it turned negative and ive had a discharge i had taken ciprofloxacin and metronidazole both are antibiotics but it seems they're not working for me anymore because i do have it again with all the pain and everything
Avatar_n_tn The only thing that has worked for me is topical metronidazole (like Metrogel). I don't have to use it every day and a little goes a long way. It is prescription only, so you will need to go to the doc. Have you gone to a dermatologist?
483733_tn?1326802046 Really tired and sick and hoping I can get some work done today. So glad I am not on the road this week. Thanks everyone for your suggestions on yesterday's journal.
Avatar_n_tn The medicine seems to work stopping discharge for about the whole day, however in the morning there's discharge, but not as much as before. Also, about 2 hrs. after taking moxifloxacin I get an intense burning sensation in the urethra ....is this a sign that the medicine is working? I have been treated for T. vaginils (2g Metronidazole), Gonorrhea (250mg of Rocephin), Chlamydia and urethritis (3x1g courses of azythromicin), but I still have symptoms of urethritis.
Avatar_m_tn Hello It is always best to work with your vet. Standard lab tests for these cases usually involve blood tests, x-rays, endoscopy with a biopsy and fecal cultures have ruled out internal problems. It may also be helpful to consider a home made or organic diet which helps to rid chemicals from your dogs body. As a holistic veterinarian for many years I have also had excellent results using a product called Tylan Plus to stop intractable diarrhea.
Avatar_m_tn Hello, Bacterial vaginosis is the most common cause of abnormal vaginal odor and discharge. It is caused by a change in the type of bacteria found in the vagina. The exact cause for the change in type of bacteria is still not known, but it is can be due to IUD’s,multiple sex partners or having intercourse with a new partner. In addition to unpleasant "fishy" vaginal odor, thin white or yellowish discharge from vagina may also be present.
Avatar_n_tn If it is still NGU I would follow up with the Dr again because what you have taken is correct and should clear you up, but since it seems like it has not then it is best to keep working with the Dr's.
Avatar_m_tn I got tiny cluster of colorless bumps all over my forehead, eye,chin & ear.... Those are not itchy,painless,not making any white (fat) or black heads. Can't pick on hand & can't count.. I'm taking "doxycycline hyclate" capsules last 14 days i didn't see any big difference.... I'm not active in sex, don't share food,cloth with others...I'm so confused.. what could be this one?? please......
Avatar_f_tn I have always had "rosy cheeks" much to my dismay. I noticed today, I was working around the house and got really hot -- when I was done, I noticed my face (mostly cheeks) stayed red...and now,7 hours later, my cheeks still red, whole face feels so hot. Im not sick, no fever, just a hot, red face. Does rosacea do this? I have a very fair complexion...have never really talked to my Dr before about it.....
