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 ...

What is the cause of that? ## If you're using it due to a yeast infection, it may be due to that, or it could be just due to a side effect of this medication. It's just something that happens and as long as the bleeding isn't severe, there is really nothing to worry about. Learn more Metronidazole details here. Learn more Miconazole details here.

Is Metronidazole used for men? If I have BV is it possible that this could come from my partner since I only have one? And if so, is it necessary for him to be treated (to prevent possible reinfect ion of the bacteria) if I was diagnosed with BV? ## Hello, Kim! How are you? This is an antibiotic that can be used in both men and women. Yes, there is a chance he may have a bacteria that has caused it and he should have it checked out to be sure. The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache and stomach pain.

Side Effects Of Metronidazole
3 Replies RSS
I used flagyl almost 4 months ago for 7 days. I still have a terrible, sometimes salty, sometimes metallic taste in my mouth. Is this long term side effect at all normal? ## According the drug's side effect profile, a sharp, unpleasant metallic taste is not unusual. I've also heard that Peppermint candy seems to help, since it increases saliva production and masks the metallic taste. It probably won't make it go away, but should certainly make it more tolerable. I would also suggest trying peppermint essential oil if you need something a bit stronger. I hope this helps! ## I was on metronidazole for c diff 4years ago with an entirely inflamed colon. After having a round of antibiotics they thought I had c diff again and put on metronidazole again. I had the same symptoms yel...

no period with metronidazole - possibly pregnant
5 Replies RSS
I recently went to the clinic for a check up and I was diagnosed with BV. The doctor prescribed me Metronidazole to take for a week. I finished taking them and I was due for my period 2 days ago and I still haven't started. I'm not sure if it is the cause of the antibiotics or if I'm pregnant. I'm not on any birth control and my husband and I don't use contraceptives during intimacy. I don't have any symptoms of pregnancy besides mood swings and fatigue. My body doesn't really feel like it is going through any changes besides my period being late. I'm just curious on how I should approach the situation. ## Hello, Renae! How are you? Has there been any change? It's actually not medically considered a late period, until you go 7 days, or more, without s...

is it safe to take expired metronidazole
4 Replies RSS
I have a cream (metronidazole) that expired on 04/2015. Can i still use it? I have a bacterial infection but insurance does not cover this med. ## It will not become dangerous, once expired, since it is a topical medication, but it may have broken down, so it could be discolored, may have a funny odor, and will likely not work as well as it did, when new. Thus, it would be best to dispose of it and see your doctor about what else you can use to eradicate the infection. The FDA lists the side effects of such topical creams as possibly including redness, dryness, and irritation. What type of infection do you have? ## Is it ok to take metronidazole after expired date I have gastric problems ## I have metronidazole pills but the medicine expired last month on the 9th. Is it ok if I still ta...
