EXPIRED FLAGYL

i WAS PRESCRIBED FLAGYL ONCE AND STILL HAVE SOME AND NEED IT BUT ITS EXPIRED, WILL IT HURT ME BEING EXPIRED? ## I was prescribed flagyl once and still have some and I need it...will it hurt me to take it being expired? ## This isn't a medication that gets dangerous, once it's expired, there are very few that do. However, it does start to lose effectiveness, so it most likely won't work as well as it did when new. If you have an old medication and aren't sure about its safety and efficacy, the best thing to do is to properly dispose of it and see your doctor for a new prescription. Are there any questions or comments? ## Hello, I have the same symptoms as I did 5 years ago. Extreme abdominal pain. I have a bottle of 250 mg Metronidazole. It was dispensed in 2013. I see no...

feeling really bad on flagyl

My dentist prescribes flagyl. I need a root canal and the tooth was infected. Also I am taking a prevpac my dr. prescribed. I am aching all over, dizzy and have a headache. Should I stop taking this? I started friday. I called my dr but she has not returned my call. Please tell me if I should continue or just stop taking it? Ugh, feeling really bad. ## That is a bit of a weird choice for a tooth infection, I must admit. This is most commonly used to treat bacterial and fungal infections. It is not a regular antibiotic, per se, and yes it can have significant side effects. I cannot tell you to stop taking it, since I am not a doctor and no one here is, so for us to try to give you an answer on that would be completely remiss, no one can diagnose or treat over the internet. If your doctor...

Flagyl or Metronidazole

antibiotic? prescribed for bacterial infection ## 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.

is it safe to take expired flagyl

The bottle says expiration 2012 but my Dr appointment isn't until January 16th can I still take this for a vaginal discharge ## Hello, Dom! How are you? Medications tend to lose efficacy, once expired, so it may not work as well as it did, when it was new. As to the discharge, it depends what is causing it. This is classified by the FDA as an antibiotic, so it is not appropriate for all vaginal infections. Its typical side effects are listed as possibly including nausea, dizziness, diarrhea, stomach burning and cough. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I have a bottle of metronidazole that expired June 2016. Is it still safe to take today for bacterial vaginosis today August 2016. ## I have an expired prescription of Flagyl (2014)...It was stored in my plastic container away...
