Common Questions and Answers about Metronidazole reactions

metrogel

had a tooth abcess so was prescribed metronidazole.7 days after completing course have started with joint pain,weakness in muscles and swollen glands.could this be connected to metronidazole?
In fact yes this med can cause several side effects. Common adverse drug reactions associated with systemic metronidazole therapy include: nausea, diarrhea, and/or metallic taste in the mouth. Mix that with anxiety and a panic attack and you have the situation you have just described . Maybe, and i doubt it, you had an overdose but Metronidazole does not seem to be especially toxic in the case of an overdose.
Cliff ========================================================================== Thanks for your question. There have been clinical case reports of persistent Metronidazole-induced peripheral neuropathy in the past. However, the dosages were generally higher than you have taken, and the symptoms improved significantly after the medication was stopped.
He told me that i have an infection,he prescribed me;metronidazole,but i,m scared to take it,help me please.im three months pregnant.
If Metronidazole (an antibiotic) is the one you took, it's the same as Flagyl. Common adverse reactions associated with systemic metronidazole therapy include nausea, diarrhea, and/or metallic taste in the mouth.
i am alergic too baxin, ceftin, augmentin, bactrim, levaquin, well she said i shouldnt be allergic to clindamycin, but i read the phamplet that came wth it and it talked about fatal reactions from diahrea. so long story short, because of having reactions to others i am terrified to take this. i tried for dentist to change it but her assistant was adamant about it. i havent taken it yet. its been two weeks i have been trying to decide.
I have experienced the same pain 2-3 times today within the last 12 hours. I have no other reactions or symtoms till now. Are the above STD symptoms of Herpes, Gonorrhea, Chlamydia , HIV? Please suggest. Note that I had started taking Cipro 500 mg (twice daily) and metronidazole 500 mg (thrice daily) since last Saturday night (its been 2 days) for my stomach pain which was prescribed by a gastroenterologist 2 weeks back.
She finished the Diawin, Metronidazole, and Chlorpheniramine-but had behavioral reactions to this drug, which limited the amount. Yesterday-reclusive/abnormal behavior, eating less, and freq. bathroom need occurred, with no diarrhea. She was given Reglan tonight, but was given that for vomitting dark brown stomach/infection 4 times in an 8 hr. span before the vet. She has not vomitted since and has seemed to be better, but began tonight. She seemed to be "hot" in body temp.
Peripheral neuropathy has been seen in association with the following antibiotics metronidazole, nitrofurantoin, thalidomide and isoniazid. What are your neurological symptoms and has a physician correctly attributed them to sulfa drugs? There is no known peripheral neuropathy with the use of cephalexim, particularly short-term use. You can also check with the pharmacist.
Redness of my foreskin of penis, and this little red spots on my gums.. It can be reactions of taking metronidazole 2 times ? or the std that i have didnt go away and it get reaction with alcohool ?

So my question is this, The red spots it can be from Metronidazole, or the Std that i dont know what is, or HIV ???? PLEASE!!! I WILL APPRECIATE VERY MUCH!!
Treatment with metronidazole for 10-14 days would be ideal. Confirmation of c-diff should be done with stool test. Probiotics may be continued which is beneficial for treating both IBS and c-diff infection. ================================================================ The information provided is for patients’ education only and is not a medical advice.

The doctor gave me metronidazole which is anti-infective medication. It isn't working and I fear my symptoms are gettting worse. It started with a mild itch above my righ eye in the morning. By the next day it had spread to both cheeks with some puss form the lesions. Could it be the same fungus from the groin? I don't think it is the rosacea the doctor is treating because of its overnight spread. Swelling seems to be spreading and the metronidazole doesn't seem to be helping.
I have confirmed this through many sources. Even today I get very very harsh reactions, but I try to not let them get to me. Covering noses, rubbing noses, etc. I know I am not paranoid as I consider myself a fairly intelligent person and realize when something is indeed wrong. (Engineering grad student...if relevant) Presently, I suffer from malodor/halitosis through the air I exhale. I am actually starting to wonder whether I have TMAU (Trimethylaminuria).
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.
I do not know if she did any addtl testing. I am on my 3rd day of metronidazole 500mg tabs and the symptoms do seem to be subsiding, though it was not persistant all the time over the last year/year and a half either. Hence me thinking it was re-occuring yeast infection. I will check with my dr to see if I can get addtl testing, along with other STD's like you have suggested to others. 1) Which methods of testing for Trich are the best? PCR and culture, correct?
about this he did a pelvic exam and he sent me home with two different kind of antibiotics (flagyl and levaquin) The meds were pretty much unbearable and I did some more reasearch and I found out that people who took levaquin were having the same kind of reactions as me, so....I stopped taking them. The symptoms seemed to go away so I figured it was gone, it came back about two weeks later I returned to the doc and he gave me the two meds again. I took them and the symptoms went away.
some months ago my obgyn diagnosed me with a bv infection, i took metronidazole (sp?) and the infection cleared, but about two or three months back i suspected a recurrence. however, i thought it went away and i gladly accepted this opportunity not to go to the obgyn (it freaks me out). my long-distance boyfriend was coming home, but i ended up having unprotected sex with one of my friends about 5 days before he came home. i know this was stupid and regret it on many levels.
Having been relatively recently exposed, you should be treated with a single dose of a medication called metronidazole (Flagyl is that brand name). In men trich can be present without causing signs or symptoms or, possibly, your swollen lymph nodes may be a consequence (more on this below. Even if trich is present and not causing symptoms, it can be passed on to others. Please see your doctor for treatment. You mention that you had a normal examination last week and an HIV test.
It's one week that I pass gas, I mean I have gas incontinence, but some people around me (friends and family members) said they don't smell anything, but still I'm confused, because I notice the others reactions like sneezing and... (But there are no comments of bad smell) And my peepee don't smells like peepee, it smells like plastic... I don't know what to do... Is it imposible that my gas dosen't smell?!
I had a break for 3 weeks and since symptoms returned without ABX, I am now starting Doxy + Moxifloxacin + Metronidazole - suprisingly after I took Doxy today, I have the same reaction - intense tingling in the tip of my penis which lasts for few hours and decreases now. It is no longer happening after next doses of Doxy. I did multiple tests in 2 independent labs, visited a number of doctors (urologists, immunologists) in Europe.
The doctor said it looked nothing like herpes lesions and rushed me out with a perscription for metronidazole cream. This really didn't make any sense to me since he said the infection was viral. I am wondering what sort of infectious rash I have, and if it is contagious. The doctor told me he didn't think that the rash was contagious and that I should be fine to work. I am a RN on a critical care unit, so I certainly don't want to be spreading this around.
not only is it not helping, i am starting to have allergic reactions to it for some reason. so he has already sent me to a surgeon and said that removing part of my colon is the only option i had left. he says that there is nothing else that he could do. remicade is the only thing i've been given to treat it! there has to be something else that may work. right now the only thing that i am on is metronidazole. Sorry for rambling im bad about that.
Tested Chlamy twice--Negative Gonno---Once Negative Syph once---Negative HIV Once---Negative HSV1 Once---Negative HSV2 Three---Negative Last test was done 7 months after last sexual encounter. I have taken Cipro,Dyoxcillin,Bactrum, Lotrisone cream,Pyridium and metronidazole because I thought it could have been trichomonasis. .
It was the humane society, and they did all these tests, X-rays, had to give him fluid and anti nausea shot. Sent me home with metronidazole, and panacur, which was odd. They said it was gastrointestinal. I'm mad because they should have not charged me 56.00 for a follow up when this was a very healthy cat. He's eating, but only dry food. He won't touch the wet food. He was 8.7 pounds, the day I brought him back he lost a pound, and he feels lighter two days later.
My Sheltie has had 3 separate seizures, all after taking 1-2 doses of Previcox. Previcox was prescribed in Nov. 2011 at his senior exam to use as needed for arthritis in his hind hips. He is 13 yrs old and has had his hind legs slip out a number of times. I used the Previcox for the 1st time in Feb. He had diarrhea prior to this for a few days & a call to the vet had him on a bland rice & chicken diet. He seemed stiff walking so I gave him the 1/2 tablet dose of Previcox. Within 12 hrs.
Severe allergic reactions (rash; hives; itching; difficulty breathing; tightness in the chest; swelling of the mouth, face, lips, or tongue; fever; flushing; stuffy nose; very dry mouth or vagina); bloody stools; decreased coordination; increased or decreased urination; numbness, tingling, or burning of the arms, hands, legs, or feet; red, swollen, blistered, or peeling skin; seizures; severe diarrhea; severe or persistent dizziness or headache; sore throat, chills, or fever; speech problems; s
Metronidazole has been shown to be carcinogenic in mice and rats (see PRECAUTIONS.) Unnecessary use of the drug should be avoided. Its use should be reserved for the conditions described in the INDICATIONS AND USAGE section below. http://www.drugs.com/cons/Metronidazole.html hope this helps. they sell supposatories at wal-mart, i don't know what the name is but it has a flower on the box....they work.....
For certain antibiotics this is the case, for example consuming alcohol while taking a course of metronidazole can cause unpleasant reactions and should be avoided. However, it is safe to drink alcohol while taking a course of flucloxacillin or erythromycin. Provided by the following website http://www.netdoctor.co.uk/skin_hair/eczema_antimicrobials_003763.
You may want to consider that some people have different reactions to medications than others. There's a case report of hepatitis consequent to treatment of h pylori with amoxycillin and clarithromycin. Pubmed ID 19946449. Another good read is "Fulminant liver failure associated with clarithromycin", PubMed ID 12503933.
Thanks for that info bsml. Yes, I have a good probiotic that was suggested to my mother by a gastroenterologist from time to time. Thanks for the tip about having them halfway between antibiotic doses. From the information on cpnhelp.org, a combined antibiotic protocol is advised, as well as some adjunctive treatments. A macrolide (preferably clarithromycin), then doxycycline, then "pulsed" metronidazole. Other protocols have been used also.
