Avatar n tn I've had to take flagyl a lot this past year for a condition I have and my doctors have stressed to me that those symptoms should not be ignored. And talk to your doctor if you are feeling like the flagyl is too tough to take, they can discuss safe options to alleviate side effects or look into other antibiotics.

Avatar f tn The metronidazole is what is making you sick, but it helps to take it with food and a full glass of water. I hope they at least told you not to drink alcohol with it - it can make you very sick. Does your college have student health services? You can go there, or to a Planned Parenthood or std clinic. You don't have to go all the way home. Being on your period is fine, but you might want to use pads, and not tampons, if you find yourself getting more irritated.
1049259 tn?1295092078 I am affraid to get serious side effects or any... how long does it take for it to get in your system if you were to get a side effect??
Avatar m tn I got diagnosed with epididymitis a week ago and the pain has just now began to leave. Is this common and how long does it normally take for the pain to go completely away along with the swelling? My scrotum hasn't swollen and i've had a ultrasound, blood test, and urine sample and all came back negitive for cancer or a tumor. I'm really frightened about it and hope that this is just epididymitis.
Avatar n tn It hurts so much too pee that i try not to eat or drink anythign so i wont have to pee. When i use the medications how long will it take to make the pain fade and be able to pee without pain. im really scared, and frustrated. i cant walk or sit without it hurting.
5264083 tn?1404669334 I know many women have experienced late periods from antibiotics. I'm hoping that someone can tell me their experiences, and how long it took for their period to come.
Avatar f tn If so he will need IV fluids, so let your vet know, unless you know how to give them? To check for dehydration you need to grab the fur at the neck (where mother kitty's scruff their babies" lift it up and let go. If it springs back in place that is good . If it takes very long then there is dehydration.
Avatar f tn My boyfriend and i were both given 2000MG 1 dose of Metronidazole, as far as i know Met would have cleared it up in one dose but sometimes you need to take it again. IF you have it and if you went back to the dr's and had them say it was still there.if not. I suggest not messing with antibiotics, they lower your immune system and make you VERY sick from the side effects. if Flagyl 2 grams orally as single dose 500mg 4 pills didnt work then suggest you talk to your dr.
Avatar n tn Is 4 weeks the amt of time that the symptoms should be gone? How long does it take to cure an ulcer? My upper GI test didn't show an ulcer, but my dr seems to think there may be a small one there that didn't show on the test. My symptoms are pain at the very top of my stomach and it's worst when my stomach is empty. The pain has diminished down to discomfort, but it's still not totally gone yet. It's been 4 weeks. How long does it take to get back to normal?
Avatar n tn My brother and sister both suffer from a bit of IBS we believe. I used to have something that affected to long long ago, afraid to eat, etc. etc. because... That was back when i was a teenager and extremely overconcious and shy. I seemed to have grown out of the shyness and the IB, thankgod, but i could imagine your struggles!
Avatar m tn I've been wanting to respond to this post and get part-way through but never finish! So I'll be brief and say that yes, I treated late-diagnosed Lyme for several years and have improved greatly. I don't know exactly when I was infected, but I was "bad" (with neurological involvement) for about a year before diagnosis. I treated (and still plan to treat more after an upcoming [not Lyme-related] surgery is out of the way) starting in Fall 2008. So I guess almost 4 years!
Avatar m tn I would ask your doctor to put you on Vancomycin, instead of or in addition to Metronidazole (Flagyl.) Studies show there are new forms of C.Diff. bacteria that don't respond to just Flagyl alone. The medication they finally put my Mom on because she had a resistant form of C.Diff. was Rifaximin, because the Vancomycin and Flagyl combo didn't/couldn't get rid of her infection.
Avatar f tn I just wanted to post a little update to say that I have been off antibiotics for a week and started herbs today. I feel much "cleaner" off antibiotics, it is very refreshing and I don't fully know how do describe wht it is like to have my system clear of that stuff after so long, but it feels nice. I'm much more optimistic about the herbs after all your comments. Ill post an update once I start to see what they are doing for me...
Avatar f tn Hi Doctor I have been taking Metronidazole 500 MG one every 12 hrs. for 7 days because I have bacterial vaginitis I started my med on 12/09/2011 on the first day it clear up my discharge right away (BUT) I still have the (FOUL ODOR) but I am in my 4th day of taking this (MED) still can't go out & I am busy person how long will it take for my good Bacterial too come BACK.
Avatar f tn He also said that baby needs monitoring after and has asked me to come back I lm two weeks so he can see weight gain over a two week period ( good indicator that baby is not growing in a compromised uterine environment) . Did your baby show symptoms if so when? How long had u had lyme when he was born?
Avatar n tn Hi how long did it take for the rash to subside and for you to feel better.. Please let me know..
Avatar f tn Would the 1st poop test show more than worms, would the Sentry worm away cause diarrhea, would it be because she's nursing. I don't want to kick her out or take her to a kill shelter, I was going to try to find her and the babies homes. Is there something I can give the nursing mom to stop the diarrhea? Also should my other cats be fine since they had no contact?
Avatar f tn I can see where one or two might give you fits (I happen to hate metronidazole that they gave me for diverticulitis). Talk to you doctor, let her/him know how these make you feel. There are others on the market but remember, certain anti-B's are good for certain types of bacteria. So there will be some limitations on how many options you have.
1049259 tn?1295092078 Hi, How are you? Metronidazole is generally well tolerated with appropriate use. Minor side effects include nausea, headaches, loss of appetite, a metallic taste, and rarely a rash. Serious side effects of metronidazole are rare. Serious side effects include seizures and damage of nerves resulting in numbness and tingling of extremities . If the tingling in your hands persists, you must inform your doctor about this. Metronidazole should be discontinued. Take care and do keep us posted.
1916673 tn?1420236870 I am not sure how much longer she can live with such little food intake. I take her to the vets for bloods on Thursday. What should I ask?
Avatar n tn Spoke to GP via phone and he precribed antibiotics with penicillin which I started taking today and wondering how long it will take for some ease to take effect? And when to expect the swelling to disappear? Thanks in advance!
Avatar n tn I doubt that this will change your opinion but I just wanted to clarify that I just started the anti-virals today, we've yet to determine if they're effective. Part of my question was if you could give me an idea of how long it might take, assuming they were effective, for them to have an effect on this condition?
Avatar f tn Although symptoms of the disease vary, most women and men who have the parasite cannot tell they are infected. Back to Top How common is trichomoniasis? Trichomoniasis is considered the most common curable STD. In the United States, an estimated 3.7 million people have the infection, but only about 30% develop any symptoms of trichomoniasis. Infection is more common in women than in men, and older women are more likely than younger women to have been infected.
Avatar n tn My dermatologist had me put an oitment in my nostrils twice a day for 7 days (which sucked) and I'm on Doryx or doxycycline at 150mg for 30 days. I'm two weeks in and it's almost undetectable. She told me to still take the full month to make sure that I really get the infetion out of my skin. The ointment in the nose was to prevent the spreading. Apparently POD is caused by a certain kind of staph in the nose perhaps?
Avatar n tn please respond because i asked my doctor and he said the probiotics wouldnt have a permanent effect but this problem didnt go away yet. how long would it take for my body to go back to normal? or do i have another infection going on? help.
