Common Questions and Answers about Metronidazole and diarrhea


Avatar m tn The medications were prescribed by my vet, but at different times and I wasn't sure if they could be given together. I went ahead and gave him the metronidazole last night and he was a different dog this morning. He's eating, playing and and barking at the front door. So relieved!

7052683 tn?1392942395 tHi Guys, I am throwing this question out there for anyone who has had experience (good or bad) with the drug Metronidazole. My Bat Mia had some biopsies done and it showed she had a Heliobacter Infection--which is like a developing ulcer in humans. She was give this drug to be taken twice daily, along with Azithromycin, and 1/4 tab of Prilosec. She seems a little lethargic and is under the bed , so I looked up this drug and the comments were very worrisome.
1049259 tn?1295092078 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. 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.
Avatar m tn Nowdays i'm experiencing a loose stool and sometimes with dark color, tired body and brakish mouth with unconfirtiblity and inflamation in my stomach and bak, also my apitite is not good.

Avatar f tn The doctor gave me a shot on my butt through (syringe) and gave me a two oral meds docycycline and metronidazole. After a day taking the meds i have a symptoms of diarrhea it was dark green with some yellow in color. Should i be worry of these symptoms?
Avatar m tn It is 20 days that I stopped it and now no burning and no bloody stool but still I have diarrhea. is it possible to have diarrhea 20 days after stopping it?
Avatar m tn It would be good to know these things. They treat based on symptoms and lab work. If your symptoms are diarrhea and no other symptoms then the Metronidazole will hopefully work. But you have to make sure you and all people in the house and visitors wash their hands after using the toilet. Also clean all surfaces with chlorine bleach (10%). Include water handles, sink, toilet handles seat , walls, etc., door handles . Or you can reinfect your self and others.
Avatar m tn While I was there I started getting diarrhea after almost every time I ate. I went to the doctor and they tested me for parasites, but the results came back negative. They suggested I start taking fiber pills, which helped but did not solve the problem. I went back to the doctor a few months later and the doctor prescribed me cipro (antibiotic), but didn't test me for anything. This definitely helped, my diarrhea after each meal stopped.
Avatar m tn Whe had a cat that had giarrdia, and he had diarrhea and kept throwing up foam and would not eat. As soon as he got off the meds he was fine, and tested negative .
Avatar m tn My boxer has had diarrhea for months - initially was a parasite, but has been on panacure 3 times, metronidazole 3 times, and prednisone, plus Prescription Diet Dry Food, Natural Lamb and Rice Dry has not cleared up. The "stools" are either formed slightly but very wet, or just a lump of "pudding", and always a yellowish color. We have also tried dog pro-biotics in between the above treatments.
Avatar n tn Hello Athena, I would advise you to take the kitten to a vet. If she's been having diarrhea for three days so will be dehydrated and may need to be on an IV. I'm not sure, but the vet will be able to advise you. You may have given her too much metronidazole . 500 mg per day sounds like a lot for a kitten's tiny body. This is not a professional medical opinion, but I strongly urge you to go and seek a professional vet to help the kitten. Otherwise she may not survive.
746785 tn?1232984349 In his first trip to the vet he tested positive for giardia and coccidia. We treated both with Flagyl and Albon, and after two weeks the diarrhea only seemed to be getting worse and there was blood in his stool. We took him back to the vet and again he tested positive for coccidia. The vet put him on Metro for 10 days, and a diet of overcooked white rice and grilled chicken. Once he was on the rice diet the diarrhea cleared up.
Avatar f tn After taking her to the second vet she was diagnosed with giardia and given a de wormer and placed on metronidazole and lactulose. I stopped giving the lactulose was stools became watery and brownish/yellow. I have finished the metronidazole but the diarrhea is still persisting. I don't know what to do anymore and I'm looking for some advice I feel terrible for this kitten and I don't want her to pass.
Avatar n tn When I stood up and walk a few feet I felt a cramp and a sensation like I was going to have diarrhea. I ran to my car and could feel it oozing out so I got a towel from my console and sat on it until I could make it to the nearest restroom. The diarrhea kept coming every few minutes and continued until I walked into the place where the reunion was being held. It stopped until we arrived back home. I was up all night and for the next two days it was coming every 10 to 15 minutes.
Avatar f tn The vet took a fecal smear, which was negative. Gave him Metronidazole 500 mg bid for 10 days and Foriflora for 30 days.No difference. She then tested him again for worms (negative) and put him on a dewormer just in case (Drontal Plus and Panacur). Still no improvement. He cont'd with loose stools daily and occasional watery diarrhea. A fecal culture was done to test for bacteria, which came up negative. We changed his diet to Iams low residue puppy.

Avatar f tn My 8 month old kitten has had diarrhea for about a month and a half now. He is growing, thriving, playing, eating and otherwise seems quite healthy. He did come from a holistic breeder where he has never been immunized (we are waiting for the diarrhea to clear up before we get him his shots).I have tried fortiflora with little success and now the vet has put him on metronidazole with no success (he's been on for 4 days). The vet did a stool analysis but he was negative for parasites.
1053613 tn?1255991594 Im 57 and had a di vinci robotic assisted hysterectomy 11 days ago. Ive had diarrhea ever since. Taken immodium which produces a soft loose stool then next day diarrhea is back. No blood, some mucus, sometimes green, sometimes brown. Im eating from the BRAT diet. Drinking pedratic electrolytes, lots of water, taking prescription strength potassium and calicum. Not taking any pain meds as my stomach does not like them. Every other day I take immodum.
Avatar n tn I was taking clindamycin 300mg cap every 8 hrs for 7 days for recurring staph boils I had. I finished my course and had diarrhea all week on the med. I thought the diarrhea was normal because it was an antibiotic, but now I still have diarrhea after a week. I feel like it won't go away. The diarrhea is not bloody or mucous like, and I feel no abdominal pain. I'm taking acidophilus and eating plain yogurt. Any suggestions?
Avatar n tn After parasites are ruled out with multiple fecal tests , a cat of eleven years of age could have Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), food allergy or g.i. lymphoma. A trial of prednisone is in order unless you are willing to have an endoscopy procedure done with a specialist. Weight loss is common in IBD and lymphoma and endoscopy with a biopsy will reveal an answer.
Avatar n tn He also started the temp spike, lethargy, off food and bloody diarrhea - but when put on Metronidazole would clear up for about a month or so. I brought the 2 kittens in the house after the mom died. We then found a 4 week old kitten about 4 months later. He was kept in the barn. Doing great. But we decided to keep him and brought him into the house. Had him wormed with drontal etc. Well this new kitten started showing the bloody diarrhea, temp & lethargy.
Avatar m tn fluid therapy with dexamethazone, and antibiotics. The antibiotic's that I use for diarrhea are Metronidazole or Tylan. I hope you dog is eating and drinking normally, but if not, she will have to see the veterinarian again. Adult dogs can go with out food for a few days without difficulty but puppies cannot since they have so little storage fat and can develop hypoglycemia very easily.
Avatar f tn Well about two weeks ago I began to have diarrhea every night. It would only happen at night though and it wasn't painful and nor did my stomach hurt like it normally would if I hate something my body didn't particularly care with. Well, about a couple days after that the gas began to get worse and eventually I was just kinda farting out yellow like mucous. I don't get the diarrhea every single night, but it is pretty much consistent. I didn't have it twice within the past two weeks.
Avatar f tn Your dog has chronic colitis and should be dewormed with panacur and treated with prednisone and metronidazole and a diet called w/d (small meals). If this doesnt work or it works and the condition returns he should have a colonoscopy to get a biopsy to confirm the diagnosis.
Avatar n tn 00 am) panting heavily and needs to go outside because of his diarrhea. Unfortunately, we have also had some pretty bad messes on the rugs. He also has the heavy panting periods at other times of the day. We are at our wits ends! Any ideas? Thank you.
Avatar f tn He took one pill tonight of Metronidazole and one pkg of Forti Flora on his supper. Doc gave him 3 days of Albon. A full bottle of Pepto that we are to give until gone. Six days of Forti Flora and 5 days of Metronidazole. Poor guy has had loads of antibiotics this year. He had infected/ impacted anal glands that were treated for over a month last spring. He had an ear infection that came back twice before we got it cleared up, late last spring.
