Caught a bacterial infection after visiting my daughter in Japan. I unconsciously had a dental abscess that made me even sicker. So I did some research and found Flagyl with Augmentin that had helped others. I had to have more invasive dental work and I am currently taking 21 days course of Flagyl 1000 mg x 2 daily with 875 mg Augmentin x2 daily to avoid recurrent infection. If you have been ill and you have lost hope, try this combo. Yes, it’s a lot of antibiotics, but I was pretty sick and it helped. I was free of infection at the time of the last dental work, but taking this as a preventative course.
Take Flagyl and Cipro for diverticulitis, and have all the symptoms like all the others. Dry mouth, headaches, funny taste in the mouth, diarrhea and generally feel slow and tired. Although I was the only one who felt like shit, but the pain is gone and I am also on a better diet.
This drug was prescribed to take twice a day for 7 days for bv. Noted after two days the symptoms were diminishing. During the first 6 days I took it directly after lunch and dinner with a bottle of water. At day 3 I woke up feeling nauseous and having a headache but nothing important at all. Overall, I would definitely recommend this drug for BV.
There are no side effects at first. Treatment 7 days 2 times a day. By day 5 I noticed that I have had severe insomnia, dry nose, headache, general feeling of discomfort. But the infection felt cured to make it good. Take it with food!
After suffering for 2 weeks, I went to my gynecologist and was diagnosed with a bacterial infection. She prescribed Flagyl for me. And even though it tastes terrible, I have found it to be very effective. I’m on my last day and although I still have some mild symptoms, I feel much better. I took my doses with milk to reduce nausea. I would definitely use this medication again, although I hope to never have this infection again.
I was in the hospital for extreme pain in my stomach, vomiting and diarrhea all at once. Diagnosis with Colitis. Doc also said it was a BI. I stayed one day because the pain was so bad and I could not hold anything. Prescribed Flagyl 500 3 per day and Cipro 500 2 per day for 14 days. On my 5th day and this medicine has been a life saver! I’m just eating a couple of biscuits and soup juice. Nothing tastes good. Also, it hurts like I have the flu. But nothing like the pain I was in before!
What is Flagyl
Flagyl (Metrondazol) is an effective medication used in treating bacterial infections. It has been proven that this antibiotic medicine provides especially powerful treatment against anaerobic bacteria.
Metrondazol is quite a powerful antibiotic medication, hence is especially effective when dealing with diverse bacterial infections and diseases. So, if you have faced a certain bacterial related infection, your chances to overcome it are much higher with Flagyl than any other antibiotic drug.
Bacterial infections related to such organs as stomach, vagina, respiratory tract, as well as joints and skin, are effectively treated with Flagyl. Additionally, the medicine is also effective with such infections of higher risk as amebiasis, dracunculiasis, trichomoniasis, and giardiasis.
If the patient is in the beginning stage of Clostridium difficile colitis, Flagyl can provide the initial necessary treatment.
Flagyl paired with some other antibiotic medications becomes an effective treatment of bacterial vaginosis, pelvic inflammatory disease, and endocarditis.
Flagyl is offered in several types and dosages including film-coated pills (250mg and 500mg, 200mg and 400mg), capsules (375mg and 500mg), suppository (500mg) and 10% cream.
When undertaking a treatment with Flagyl, it’s highly crucial to follow the doctor’s prescriptions and instructions. For instance, if it’s prescribed to receive 250mg-pills twice a day for seven days, you are to take a pill every twelve hours for the upcoming week. The patient should never undertake or cease a course of Flagyl treatment on his own.
Even if he feels much better after taking the drugs for a couple of days, it’s necessary to complete the course as it was prescribed. Only this way you can get assured the infectious bacteria is thoroughly removed from your organism. If you stop the treatment halfway, this may be fraught with negative consequences.
Not only will the bacterial infection return in a more aggressive form, but it will have gained high resistance toward Flagyl. Accordingly, you will have to turn to much more expensive and more potent antibiotics to get rid of the infection.
Flagyl is a serious antibiotic medication, which may appear quite dangerous for some patients who have intolerance or allergy to a certain ingredient found in the medication. This happens very rarely yet is far not impossible. Patients receiving a Flagyl treatment should avoid using alcohol and certain medications that may interact with Flagyl.
This way they may reduce the likelihood of experiencing a negative adverse reaction of Flagyl. Pregnant women or those who plan pregnancy in the near future, should, by all means, let their doctor know about it. This way the doctor may offer proper adjustments suiting the patient’s condition.
