Metronidazole lasting side effects
1110 Replies RSS
I have been taking this medication for 7 days and off of it since a week and still have severe side effects, abdominal cramps, severe headaches, dizziness, unsteadiness... How long is it expected to last? It was prescribed with Ciprofloxacin to me and I take Entrophen on a regular basis... ## Have things improved any? Have you consulted your doctor? For a short course of the medication, it would be unusual for side effects to remain that severe for that long, after you are finished with it. ## I started flagyl on 3/5/12 I'm so sick now, but I stopped it 3 days ago when these symptoms started yet they have only gotten worse. My throat is covered in sores and blisters. It also has a yellow type puss that runs down the back of my throat. I Itch like crazy my stomach is so bloated i loo...

It is itchy in my vagina. It's so irritating and itchy all the time and when i scratch, it leaves me with pain. Today i went to the pharmacy and they gave me canex v, cpl alliance ciprofloxacin 500 and adco - metronidazome 400mg. I dont know if it will work. ## Have you consulted a doctor? From the symptoms, it seems you may have a severe yeast infection and, if that is the case, the Canex V cream and the Metronidazole, which are both antifungals, may help, but the Ciprofloxacin could actually just make it worse. ## Can canex v cream help me conceive a child? ## Yesterday night I used da canex v cream n this morning I was on periods, is it doing fine does it have to get me in periods to heal? ## I got canex v today n started using it..then it started itching some that norma...

combitic global caplet pvt ltd is this company legit? and has anybody used their product before?
58 Replies RSS
Is this company and their product legit? I filled a prescription for some metronidazole and they're sugar coated and have no markings but the packaging looks correct..??? A little iffy about taking them. ## Hi Shane, Based on my research, Combitic Global Caplet Private Limited does make themselves out to look like a legitimate manufacturer, with locations based in Haryana and New Delhi India. They even list the following address on their webpage: 2027/7, CHUNA MANDI, PAHARGANJ, NEW DELHI-110055 (INDIA) I can't say that they aren't who they claim they are (as I haven't tried any of their products)... but for being quote on quote "one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in India", I must admit that their webpage looks like pretty lousy. I also find it hard to t...

anaerobyl 400
12 Replies RSS
I have not seen my period for six months and went to the doctor who then prescribed anaerobyl 400 for me. What is it for? ## Based on my research, Anaerobyl contains the active ingredient Metronidazole; which is an antibiotic used to treat certain types of bacterial infections. However, only your doctor knows for sure why he decided to prescribe you an antibiotic in the first place. So you would essentially have to ask him to find out more details about the infection, where it's location was, and how it might've been affecting your period all this time. You can learn more about this drug on the page for Metronidazole Details I hope this info helps to answer your question! ## In my third trimester(31w 1day) and my Dr gave me the anaerobyl 400g pills to take and i started to feel ...

Can pliva 334 cure tric or it's not a strong enough dosage dosage for that? ## Hello, Holla! How are you? This tablet is now manufactured by Teva Pharmaceuticals and they list it as containing 500mgs of Metronidazole, which is an antibiotic and amebicide. Its typical side effects, as listed by the FDA, may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, skin rash and diarrhea. The one day dose regimen is to take 2 grams orally or to split it into two separate doses. The longer 7 day regimen is to take the 250mgs tablets 3 times a day for the full 7 days. Has your doctor prescribed this for you? One tablet isn't going to be enough. ## There's a bunch of really stupid people on here... I have little faith in humanity.

On the first day I started taking the tablets my period came and it is early. Is this normal or should I be worried? ## Hello, Joy! How are you? Are you using any type of hormonal contraceptive?

I went to the clinic and they gave me the green doxytet capsules(100mg) and metronidazole (200mg). The nurse that was assisting me said nothing is wrong but I'm still experiencing these pains. ## Doxytetracycline is an antibiotic that's used to treat or prevent bacterial infections.
