Avatar m tn The dentist can prescribe based upon his clinical judgement but generally, clindamycin is prescribed at 150 to 300mg every 6 hours, with 300mg being a stronger dosage to kill bacteria. He may be concerned with some side effects of the antibiotics.

Avatar n tn Hi there... I'm wondering what people's side effects have been from Prevacid? Any input would be great. Also, can a Hiatal Hernia cause pain on the right side? I know I have a HH because I was having chest pain, no doctor knew what it was. Then I wen to my chiro for an adjustment, mentioned it to him, and he literally reached up into my ribcage and pulled downwards. It hurt a bit but the pain has been 80% less since then.
Avatar n tn All antibiotics, and antifungals can cause Gastro-intestinal side effects too. But in your dog's case, there was some diarrhea BEFORE medication with Metronidazole? Elevated ALT levels are usually signs the liver is struggling with some form of toxicity. This may have been caused by a bad reaction to Flagyl?? The liver is amazingly resilient, and levels should return to normal when the meds are stopped. But again, you need to consult your vet. How is your dog now?
1049259 tn?1295092078 about 48 hours after the dose. also, why did he not get side effects and I had a few bothersome ones??? weight? I am 104 of average weight at 5'2" he is 6 foot 3 and most likely 200 at the most maybe 198? why did the dr give us the 2000 MG dose and not the 7 day dose???? if the dr thought my weight wasnt high enough for that dosage would he still give it to me???
Avatar f tn When I found out that I had trich, I bought Metronidazole and took 2grams (1 dosage) of it. Metronidazole made me feel really sick! Anyway, after a week I realized that I still had trich. Exactly the same symptoms were still there. So, I took Tinidazole.. a 2g dose. When will this take effect? I took tinidazole after I had dinner and went to sleep right away so that I won't feel the side effects of which I had when I took Metronidazole.
Avatar n tn Was in the metro gel that comes with the applicators and if so did you have Any side effects
Avatar n tn This doctor swore up and down that it didn't contain sulfa and I took the one dose of diflucan and stayed on metronidazole for a week, experiencing the side effect it tells you to call your doctor about: burning sensation on my arms, tingliness in my hands and feet, sore throat, rashes and hives. The doctor I called said it wasn't life threatening, take some ibuprofen and continue with the meds.
Avatar n tn Re: your last question about side effects... just because a medication CAN cause side effects, certainly doesn't mean it will. They just have to list all the things that happened to participants during the trial, which is why some side effects of meds include things like colds (which obviously no medication can cause). Personally, I've taken it for BV, and I never experienced any side effects at all.
Avatar m tn Am I at risk of any side effects (infertillity etc...) Should I seek further medical attention? Is there a possibility that I have an undetectible STD? Thanks and please direct me towards the appropriate course of action.
Avatar n tn The usual dosage is somewhere between 1 and 15 mg a day. Potential side effects include bleeding, hair loss, nausea, vomiting, stomach cramps, diarrhea and leukopenia (low blood cell count). The half life (amount of time for half the drug to be cleared from the body is 42 hours but varies widely depending on the individual).
Avatar n tn Has your son's diet AND WATER SUPPLY (SEE GREG'S COMMENTS)changed, since you moved to Massachussetts? Has your son had a vaccination recently? Vaccinations can cause bad side effects. Was your son taking any medications recently, like antibiotics? If yes, consider giving your son some PRO-BIOTICS such as the brand Ethical Nutrients, infant/child formula (milk-free) of BIFIDUS INFANTUM plus rice maltodextrin (supposedly gluten-free). Might your son have a milk sugar intolerance?

Avatar m tn I looked it up to see what it was and it appears to have some serious side effects. Is this something I should be concerned about? If this warrants a separate thread, I will gladly open one. Thanks in advance.
Avatar n tn I asked many doctors about this, but never got a straight answer. And the side effects of both antibiotics and PPIs are just awful! Have you heard about lethal pseudomembranous colitis caused by antibiotics? The answer to your question is yes - there are some effective alternative treatments. Consider mastic gum, Manuka honey from New Zealand and extra virgin pine nut oil from Siberia. I personally know people who have been helped by all three.
212705 tn?1221624250 Mild adverse effects can occur even if serum lithium levels are 1 mmol/L. Initial postabsorptive symptoms including g.i. discomfort, nausea, vertigo, muscle weakness, and a dazed feeling frequently disappear after stabilization of therapy. More common and persistent side effects: fine hand tremor, fatigue, thirst, polyuria. Mild to moderate toxic reactions occur at lithium levels of 1.5 to 2 mmol/L; moderate to severe reactions at levels > 2 mmol/L.
Avatar m tn Good Luck What is below is a reply I put in to a discussion on side effects to ED drugs. So if he drugs don’t work or work well but with bad side effects, then go the herbal way, and it works, but you need to go the whole way with them and give them a good try, but remember these things take up to 8 weeks to get to full power, so you need to be on an 12 week trial, but just like drugs its a mix and match affair to find the right mix.
Avatar n tn mom uses it about once a month and she also had bad odor and its gone, in her case coudl smell it even when she passed by me, and her odor is non existant,this product has helped me so much, and i want to use it once a week and am just scared about long term effects, please let me know if you think its safe using it year round? or should i just use the metronadizole gel after sex?
548642 tn?1266183252 Your doctor may have to change the doses of your medication or monitor you more carefully for side effects. tell your doctor if you have or have ever had organic brain syndrome (any physical condition that affects the way your brain works); or thyroid, heart, or kidney disease. Also tell your doctor if you have severe diarrhea, excessive sweating, or fever. Call your doctor if you develop these symptoms during your treatment.
Avatar m tn The week after I decided to gradually increase the dosage by 1000mcg every day for a total of 5 grams per day, I noticed a small nagging headache at that dosage so I stopped for a day and resumed my 3 grams per day, that seems to be the dosage that works for me, zero side effects. I'm now at week 6 (almost two months now) and I can say that this has helped me tremendously, like night and day.
Avatar f tn ================================================ My LLMD treated me with Mepron and azithromycin, as mentioned above, and it worked fine with no side effects that I recall, and I am a total lightweight when it comes to meds: if a drug has a possible side effect, I get it bad. Once I was treated for babs and it was cleared out, I was switched to azithromycin and Flagyl (metronidazole) for Lyme. Flagyl is the cyst-buster. There are others too, I think, but Flagyl worked well for me.
Avatar f tn Currently, some vets feel the effectiveness of Flagyl (Metronidazole) is down to 40%. Known side effects of Flagyl are nausea, disorientation, yeast growth, liver failure depression, regurgitation, and nerve damage". * www.holisticbirds.com This is another waterborne parasite that vets do not test for but could be at the root of your problem. Ask you vet to read about Cryptosporidiosis * Found this one and thought it may help you........
Avatar f tn But still, prolonged use of Augmentin may lead to expected side effects like general diarrhea,vomiting,rash,tingling, during or after treatment with Augmentin. The symptoms you stated may be referred to a condition known as Antibiotic assciated diarrhea or Psedumembranous colitis,proliferation of C.difficale caused by imbalance of useful colonic bacteria.Symptoms are feeling sick,diarrhea, abdominal pain,fever, fatigue.
Avatar n tn Flagyl is a drug often over-looked in terms of the side-effects. I am not sure what dosage your son was given, but it can cause serious harm. Exploration of any lingering side effects would be prudent. Also flaygl causes serious yeast overgrowth, an organism that lives in conjunction with blastocystis. I would strongly recommend an herbal cleanse or even better a colonic with a licensed professional.

568812 tn?1379169394 If you are allergic to sulfa then you'll take doxycycline 100 mg bid, tapering down as above. Levaquin or Avelox are expensive quinolone drugs with dangerous side effects in some people. They are taken once a day. I usually take them for 7-10 days. They can be very effective where nothing else has worked. Avelox is not typically used for these types of infections and you may not be able to obtain it from your doctor due to prescribing restrictions.
