    I had BV two years ago and again now, both times I have been prescribed this. I am also prone to yeast infections so I asked my Dr to put in an order for fluconazole (or Diflucan) since being on antibiotics almost always yields in a yeast infection for me.

    Took 500mgx2x7days for BV. These pills are HUGE and not easy to swallow. Not sure if the BV is cleared up or if I now have a yeast infection (possible side effect). Oh...and I also now have thrush. Back to the doctor tomorrow.

    I have had no major issues at all. Seem to be more tired than normal with a minor headache here and there. Nothing crazy. I typically don't eat with it either and seem to be fine.
