Metronidazole kidney

Common Questions and Answers about Metronidazole kidney


Avatar m tn I'm having some health concerns. Let me be as concise and clear as possible. Recent bout of headaches so doctor ordered MRI of the brain 10 days from now. I'm 27 Relevant factors~ 1. After visiting China approx 1 1/2 months ago did a parasite cleanse with "metronidazole (Chinese produced)" it gave me big time headaches when first taking it but that's a possible side effect- 2. Recent flu shot, maybe a touch of cold.
Avatar n tn is it safe for a cat with a history of kidney failure to be taking these drugs, and both at the same time? Thanks!
Avatar n tn What was the acute kidney failure from? And, if it's acute and not chronic kidney failure, then the meds will be fine. You really don't have much of a choice, you can't let a bacterial infection go-especially a bladder infection-if untreated that goes to the kidneys and I know you don't want that. I understand your concerns completely, though. You're worried about stressing the kidneys out w/meds after he's recovering. I think it would do more harm than good to avoid the meds.
1872406 tn?1320893991 My Cookie left me on Monday after battling Chronic Kidney Disease and failure for more than 2 years. I am posting this in order to help anyone else who is facing this with their pet. My vet told me that she was among the longest survivors of CKD he has known and the longest lived he has personally treated. While there is very little comfort that I can draw from it, I hope some of the things that we got right with her can at least help others.
661200 tn?1225486613 Even worse, there isn't a darn thing to do for kidney failure other than treat the symptoms as best you can. Once kidney cells are destroyed, they cannot regenerate like other organs such as the liver can. When kidney failure reaches the last stages, you will notice a marked increase in nausea and vomiting and probably urinary accidents as well. The nausea is from the toxins remaining in the bloodstream that the kidneys can no longer filter out.
Avatar m tn 4 weeks ago I was diagnosed with kidney stones in the er, after a ct scan of my stomach. next day noticed pain across my shoulders, and some muscle weakness, esp. on right side. since then I believe I have passed the kidney stones. but still having a dull pain in lower left abdomin sometimes radiating to the right side, 1-2 out of 10 on pain threshold. and pain in my right shoulder sometimes radiating to the left shoulder, new symptom, muscle twitches on both sides lower stomach.
Avatar n tn I recently was hospitalized for a nasty Kidney infection. I have been out and on antibiotics for about a week and a half. My question is can you have kidney pain this much after recovery?? I feel like the pain is coming back. It is nothing like how bad it was the first time, but I definitely have some pain again in the same spot. The doctors think a UTI caused my infection in the first place, but I have no symptoms of a UTI now. I had some itching a few days ago, but that is gone now.
13602926 tn?1458507560 Okay, My little 4 lb 10 yr old Yorkie has Heart Disease and now they determined he also has Kidney Disease. I don't know which came first so it is a double hard for me to handle, too much too fast. I go in to tomorrow to see the Internal Med Vet about his kidneys and I don't know what to expect. What questions should I ask? What tests should I request? What am I to expect? He had his BP taken last week and it was 120 mm Hg systolic. I was told it was good.
Avatar n tn Does anyone know if a yeast infection can just go away on its own after a few days? Also, has anyone else experienced GI problems with Keflex and Metronidazole? I had a kidney infection and UTI. Long story short, i was hospitalized and sent home with Keflex. My doc says it probably is the cause of this terrible diahrrea i have. So, i started the Metronidazole today. Causing a lot more nausea though.

Avatar f tn My dog is a 6 year old female golden retriever. Of late, I have observed weakness in her hindlegs and urged my dad to take her to the vet. the lab results have indicated a 962 U/L for ALT as compared to the norm of not more than 100. I have recognised that this is a very strong indicator of liver disease, although I am not sure of which kind. As for her ALKP results, 340 was recorded against the lab's norm of not more than 212 U/L.
Avatar n tn I also have a history of kidney stones, and right stappled kidney from an operation 25 years ago.
Avatar f tn I don't know if it's from taking Metronidazole and then getting on Amitiza or not. It can be that I have internal problems with my Cervics or Kidney or something. It's scary, I want exams done for PID because I've had BV symptoms for the last 6 months, and I just have more problems. I wonder if it can be an ovarian cyst, all I know is movement hurts, and I don't know if it's affiliated with my monthly, but I have never felt this pain until now.
Avatar m tn No antibiotics and no hospital exposure save vets a number of months back. Metronidazole was prescribed. How long before I should see an improvement? On it for three days.
Avatar f tn My OB pescribed me Metronidazole for a vaginal bacteria infection. I believe they wouldnt give it to me if it was harmful, but ive read alot online about not taking it in your first almost 10 weeks with my 3rd child. Im nervous but know I ignoring the infection can/may cause miscarriage....any comments would help.
Avatar n tn ADDITIONAL MONITORING OF YOUR DOSE OR CONDITION may be needed if you are taking anticoagulants, birth control pills, corticosteroids, doxycycline, metronidazole, quinidine, valproic acid, theophylline, sumatriptan, or medicine for high blood pressure or heart conditions (beta blockers) or for mood or emotional conditions (phenothiazines). Inform your doctor of any other medical conditions, allergies, pregnancy, or breast-feeding.
Avatar f tn Neuropathy may be caused by Diabetes Mellitus, Vitamin B12 and Folate deficiency, Autoimmune diseases like Lupus, Multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis or Guillain-Barre syndrome, AIDS, syphilis, and kidney failure. Exposure to toxins, such as heavy metals, gold compounds, lead, arsenic, mercury, and organophosphate pesticides, and side effects of medications like antibiotics such as metronidazole, isoniazid etc may also cause neuropathy.
Avatar n tn There are many possible causes of peripheral neuropathy, including Diabetes Mellitus, Shingles (post herpetic neuralgia), Vitamin deficiency- particularly B12 and folate, Alcohol, Autoimmune diseases including lupus, rheumatoid arthritis or Guillain-Barre syndrome, AIDS, syphilis, and kidney failure, Inherited disorders, such as amyloid polyneuropathy or Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, Exposure to toxins, such as heavy metals, gold compounds, lead, arsenic, mercury, and organophosphate pesticides
1715257 tn?1308736338 There are various causes of peripheral neuropathy like hypothyroidism, shingles, alcohol, autoimmune disorders like lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, Guillain Barre Syndrome, AIDS, Syphilis, kidney failure, exposure to toxins like organophosphate pesticides and medicines like metronidazole etc. MRI spine is warranted to check for any degenerative disc disease, bony spurs etc. consult a neurologist for these speculations. Multiple sclerosis, a chronic demyelinating disorder also needs to be excluded.
Avatar f tn Hello, From your symptoms there is a possibility that this is due to bacterial vaginosis. Diagnosis can be confirmed after pelvic examination and microscopic examination of the vaginal discharge. Treatment is by metronidazole((Flagyl, MetroGel) and clindamycin (Cleocin) which are available under prescription. They are available as pills or vaginal gels or creams. Please do not use any vaginal douches.
Avatar f tn One of my co-workers (which I share a computer with) contracted a chylamidic/gonhorrea type STI/STD. I have been cleared via 7 urine tests and 4 blood labs of any STD/STI/UTI/kidney sediment, etc. I have been gone through 2 antibiotics (doxycycline/metronidazole) w/ no relief. I have read extensively on these forums of this similar issue and am curious if anyone has found any luck or results that could help me narrow this down.
1953906 tn?1371406129 after that ive seen a doctor and he give me a antibiotic levofloxacin 500mg and urotractin after i consume this antibiotic and i feel this is getting worse and i change another doctor who also give me the azithromycin 500mg and metronidazole and after i consume that for one day i test for urine and the result is no bacteria and no trichomonas and when i want to test for chalymdia and gonorhea there is no fluid from my penis and cant test.
Avatar n tn Intake of antibiotics, any kidney disease; inflammation of the kidney, bladder infection can cause blood in urine. A complete history, laboratory and imaging studies may help in determining the cause of your symptoms. Treatment will be specific based on the cause. Schedule an appointment with a nephrologist.Do keep me posted. Take care and regards!
Avatar m tn In our clinic, given your recurrent symptoms, you would have been treated with the alternate medication recommended for chlamydial infection (doxycycline) plus metronidazole, not just metronidazole alone because of the (unproven) possibility that you might have failed your recent treatment. Several additional thoughts arise however. First, your testing sounds unusual.
Avatar n tn Still concerned, went to the STD clinic that day and got the full workup a Rocefin injection, Zithromax 1g pills, and Metronidazole 2g pills. I still had the same symptons for 4 more days. However, on the 5th day (today) I still had them but later in the day I went to urinate and saw a small blood clot come out. It looked to be no more than 1/4" or so long, and then had a slight blood urine mixture. Since that incident I have not had any more pain during urination. Any ideas?
Avatar m tn parasites, gastritis, toxins, infectious agents, foreign body ingestion, kidney or liver disease, cancers and more. Not eating for two weeks is very serious. It would be great if your vet's were able to perform blood tests and X-Rays because once there is a diagnosis proper treatment can be instituted. If diagnostics cannot be performed than symptomatic treatment is the next best option. Symptomatic treatment for a vomiting, anorexic dog include: 1.
Avatar m tn Pallidum Ab IgG (Neg) Chlamydia Antibodies, IgG (.91 / norm for having it) Creatinine, serum (kidney function) norm – for hepatitis detection.
Avatar m tn I have a 2 year old teacup Schnauzer & recently changed her diet to a raw diet. We used Stella & Chewy's raw food. The first week she did great, the second week she began vomiting, sometimes food, other times white foamy stuff. She laid around for about 2 or 3 days, but still had an appetite, loved her new food & drank the normal amount.
