Anaerobyl 400

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 ...

Metronidazole lasting side effects

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...

Combitic Global caplet pvt ltd is this company legit? and has anybody used their product before?

Is this company and their product good? 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 trust ...

I've been treated for rosacea but the cream that my dermatologist gave me did nothing. Can this work for me? I have redness, flaking, irritation around my cheeks, eyebrows, and by my ears. ## Will this work on red spots on my cheeks? I am using metronidazole gel and it doesn't work. ## From what I could gather, Gelmicin Cream is indicated for treating a variety of skin problems, including: skin allergies; skin infections; eczema; & psoriasis. It also reportedly contains the following active ingredients: Betamethasone dipropionate 0.05g Gentamicin sulfate 0.10g Clotrimazole 1g However, since I don't see rosacea specifically listed as something it treats, you may have to contact your doctor/dermatologist for more details.

Is metronidazole pills safe to take after 5 years old? Coco just need to know... ## Hello, Coco! How are you?
