Metronidazole and prednisone

Common Questions and Answers about Metronidazole and prednisone


Avatar f tn I have not had BV since, however, earlier this month I got another case and on 2/5/14 I was put on metronidazole again. The 7 day course ended on 2/12/14 and exactly 5 days later, I broke out in that same case of hives. My scalp, neck, jaw line, and hip bones are covered in painful hives. I am back on a prednisone and cross my fingers it will help faster than last time which took 4 days to clear.
Avatar n tn or the antibiotic combo Flagyl (metronidazole) and Cipro (ciprofloxacin) short of a liquid diet, a low residue diet is the least offensive to the bowel. I understand the concern with the TNF blockers (Remicade, Humira, etc). take care and I wish her well.
Avatar n tn It might be best to keep your dog on a non-allergic diet, with pepcid (or prilosec), reglan (anti-nausea), Regulan, a good probiotic, and a low dose of prednisone long term at the smallest effective dose possible. Tylan powder, which is safer than metronidazole can be used in low doses long term. The Chinese herbal formula: Wei Chang He (Happy Earth) is excellent for vomiting. It is available online. A endoscopy with biopsy may be necessary if nothing is effective long term.
Avatar n tn I have just been diagnosed with crohn's in my colon an dam taking medication asacol, metronidazole for that and ciprofloxacin for a bladder infection. I think I have had the infection some time, not knowing what I had. I have started feeing pain like an inflamation in my writ for a while now, longer than I knew I had crohn's and now in my hips and bones, I have trouble being comfortable lying on my sides at night. It is like I have infection in them.
1464587 tn?1307495205 The only things I've read about Lyme and dentistry is that Lyme can cause dental pain due to inflammation and irritation of the nerves running to the teeth. I also know that I don't tolerate stress (like from dental work) like I used to, so that could be a side effect ... but dental work that needs to be done needs to be done. Best wishes!
Avatar n tn So, she put me on Metronidazole pills 2x a day for 7 days and Metronidazole gel every night injected into the vagina. Then the side effects started. Constant headache, dizziness and feeling terrible. Went off the pills after 3 days since these side effects are listed on the paperwork. But continued with the gel. One more night to go and today the burning is back again. It's never been terrible burning, just uncomfortable.
Avatar f tn So having experienced all the million stomach disorders in dogs, I would opt for a single novel protein diet, Tylan instead of Metronidazole (you can buy it in bulk at KVvet supply and put it in empty capsules), test for Giardia (use the blood test), and ask for Pred. If the dog is allergic to certain proteins, the very last thing I would give is Chicken, beef, and maybe fish.
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 I brought her to the vet - he took a blood test as well as a leukima test. All came back fine with no abmornaities. He prescribed Metronidazole 250mg. However the diarrhea did not go away. I changed my cats brand of cat food about a month or two ago, and recently changed back to the orginal brand she was use to. What else can I do to stop my cats diarrhea? I have two other cats, and they have not been effected with this at all.
Avatar f tn Treatment involved supportive management of the symptoms (cerenia is a great anti-vomiting medication you could try), dietary management to help with weight gain (she was eating a high calorie vet prescription diet), and initially prednisone and metronidazole to reduce the inflammation of the abdominal tumors. Ask your vet if this condition is a possibility. Good luck, I really feel for you and hope everything turns out better. Dr.
Avatar n tn Urine showed crystals and a severe bladder infection. The Vet put her on Baytril, Sucralfate and Metronidazole and special food. Today, she had xrays done and so far looked normal but they need to be examined. Her history on meds are Prednisone for (Allergies) inflamed feet from licking and biting. The vet does not think the throwing up blood has to do with the bladder infection and seems to be at a loss as to why she threw up blood. Please help.
Avatar n tn 05% desonide for two weeks and a three week course of prednisone and it has not cleared. When I was taking prednisone and moisturizing liberally it seemed to be getting better but when i worked over the weekend and was only able to to moisturize at night it went back to the same as before. After finishing my prednisone course i have been moisturizing liberally with no results. Im looking for a second opinion as to what this is and how i can clear it?
Avatar n tn The doctor said the carotid artery was inflamed and prescribed a nine day course of prednisone. I started the prednisone tonight along with 3 advil and the pain is already much, much better. My doctor told me that there is an 80% chance this treatment will resolve the problem, but there was a 20% chance that it might return and I might need another course of prednisone. The little bit of reading I have done so far seem to point to a viral cause.
Avatar m tn 05% hydrocortisone cream mixed with flurandrenolide lotion, desonide I just went back to the same dermatoligist today and he injected it this time with what he said was pretty much the same as the cutivate and oxystat, and gave me desoximetsone to rub on. The condition is redness around the corners of my mouth and chin I have been dealing with this for sometime and is very embarrasing, can anyone give me advice and will high blood sugar cause this.
Avatar m tn I've gone to the doctor many times and the dermatologist a few. The doctor told me it was rosacia and gave me a metronidazole cream. I used this when I did have a rash and the next it was unbearable. I didn't use it anymore and I ended up just taking prednisone. Prednisone is the only thing I've found to work although I don't take it often because I know its bad for you.
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 I saw my doctor and she prescribed some strong anti-histamine to take at night, and also prednisone if the episode got any worse. After two weeks treating with the anti-histamine, the burning sensations became intolerable and I began the prednisone therapy. The first day on the prednisone, I thought that I was healed - everything (itching, burning, redness) was gone. The second day, my ear began to burn again, and the syptoms began to slowly re-appear.
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 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 n tn 1) I have seen gastrointestinal and other side-effects to the cyclines but rarely if ever in all the years have I seen a true allergy to them; 2) Even when present, allergies do not require 10 days of prednisone. Prednisone and the other steroids you have use worsen and perpetuate the rash, causing rebound. Lamisil is irrelevant. Suggestions: 1) Stop steroids and antifungals.
Avatar f tn 75%, Metronidazole 500 mg tablets, Bactrim and Prednisone. Not all at once of course. The only thing that has worked has been the Prednisone. The rash/sores have cleared up but have left scarring. The do not itch in general. Do become very red and are very nasty looking. We cover his face with makeup so that he can go out in public. They do almost look like sores. The do go behind the ears and he does get sporadic sores across the bridge of the nose.
1475974 tn?1306884921 This all started after we found her digging into an old pail of fish bait that she found behind a shed while on vacation. She was very sick and we took her to the Boston Road Animal Hospital and our Vet for treatment. She has never been the same since...weak, lethargic and its only getting worse. We took her to TUFTS after our Vet was just out of answers. They did not have any either...I have watched her deteriorate and then this past August she was given her shots...
408245 tn?1202057595 had her from 8 weeks old she has had constant diarea and has had blood and mucus in it had her to the pdsa they pumped her with antibiotics after antibiotics still havent done a thing for her took her to a private vet they still non the wiser what is the matter with her the blood cleared up but she still has the diarea what could this be.i kept her on a bland diet for 3 months and it still hasnt helped her.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn It does not seem to be related to exercise since I can go for a run and feel nothing... but then I can be sitting and all of a sudden my calves (always both at the same time) start to ache and feel tight. Sometimes they feel so sore that I can almost not walk. Water seems to help on occasions. I can't understand why all of a sudden I may be becoming dehydrated so that doesn't seem logical... The aches come and go without warning and sometimes it's much worse than other times.
Avatar n tn I'm 24 years old and was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis when I was 15 years old. Recently, I've had a flare and at one point I was taking a 7 day trial of 4mg of prednisone, 250 mg of Asacol 4 tablets 3x a day and 250 mg of Metronidazole 1 tablet 3x a day. Currently I only weigh 86 pounds and I'm 4'11". Is all of this medication good for me? Also, are there support groups in the Las Vegas area for patients such as myself. I would really appreciate your help.
Avatar n tn During the first twenty years of this disease, Prednisone and Sulfasalazine were the main treatment. Later Antibiotics (Ciprofloxacin or Metronidazole), Corticosteroids, 6-Mercaptopurine (6-MP), Methotrexate, and Cyclosporine when I ended up in emergency rooms. Which happened more than I can remember. None of these worked as the Prednisone did. I eventually started receiving Remicade treatments that helped with the fistulas for a while. This was temporary and I had to go back every 6 weeks.
Avatar f tn the vet request us to go back for follow-up within 3-5 days. Overall, the consultation didn't give me great confidence on going back to this vet. So, just starting to do some research before finding another vet for a second opinion on what further steps should be taken to help my dog. After reading the professional reply on the posts, I really hope that some advice could be given to me. Any thoughts on my case would be very much appreciated.
Avatar n tn I get staph sinusitis all the time (not MRSA, though) due to a spot that produces excess mucous in my posterior nasopharynx. Usually treatment with either the combination of bactrim and metronidazole or clindamycin alone eliminates that infection. However, after we switched to clindamycin, I've become susceptible to secondary candida infections in my sinuses. These are quickly remedied with a short course of fluconazole.
