Yes, Flagyl is an antibiotic prescribed for this reason.

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.

I took Flagyl on Sunday and on that same day I had unprotected intercourse... Does Flagyl affect one's ability to conceive? Please help. I am worried.

Verwon Says:

They are both the same thing, Metronidazole is just the active ingredient in Flagyl. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, diarrhea, and abdominal pain.

Amahsne, no, it should not cause any problems.

Are there any other questions?

I took 4 flagyl pills I believe 500mg from the hospital and I'm 5 days late on my period I've called to CVS and Walgreens and they told me less than 1% of women report having late periods and how it's not a side effect of the medicine... They told me to take a pregnancy test asap I took one a week ago and negative. Could I be pregnant?
