Aleternative To Flagyl?

I took flagyl for 4 days after a bad reaction (stomach pain, mucus in bowel movements) to Ceftin. I was supposed to take the flagyl for 7 days but couldn't tolerate the nausea, etc. It has been a week since I stopped the Flagyl and my symptoms from the Ceftin are returning. Is there anything over the counter I can take to remedy this? I don't want to take the flagyl again if I can help it.

Since Flagyl is a nitroimidazole antibiotic medication used particularly for anaerobic bacteria and protozoa; I would think for the symptoms you described, that supplementing with probiotics, digestive enzymes, and oil of oregano would be a good alternative approach.

Wild oregano is rich in a long list of minerals that includes calcium, magnesium, zinc, iron, potassium, copper, boron, and manganese and vitamins C, A (beta carotene), and niacin. It also has very potent pain relieving effects when ingested orally, that should help with stomach pain and help clear any mucous in your intestines and kidneys.

The digestive enzymes will help with stomach discomfort. And probiotics will aid in replenishing the good bacteria flora that is very likely not present after taking antibiotics.

If you choose to go this route I'd be interested in knowing how it worked out for you. Consistency is key.

I hope this helps!

I bought some acidophilus pills at the grocery store and lots of yogurt. After one day, I was back to normal!
