While taking this, it made my symptoms worse. My vagina burned so bad while I was on this that it felt like someone put a cigarette out on my vagina. I took the 10-day course twice a day.

Day 5 and I have only had change in urine color. Had extreme smell but no discharge prior to medication.

This is my last day of taking metronidazole and it hasn't been very effective. I might have to get a stronger antibiotic and redo the treatment. So far the side affects it's given me is drowsiness, nausea, and thrush.
