I was hesitant taking this drug based on what I heard about the side effects. I have taken other antibiotics and have experienced some side effects. This was no different. Mild headache after the first few doses and a little dizzy. Other than than, no problems. Definitely take with food to prevent upset stomach. The taste is not pleasant and it dissolves quickly. Be sure to have a glass of wat ... Show Full Comment

I did not have to suffer for 3 weeks if I was correctly diagnosed. BV had me hating the anatomy and being a woman. When two courses of Chlotrimazole and then fluconazole did not work I did some research. I self-diagnosed, self prescribe and administer metronidazole and by the 4th TABLET on day 2 I was free from all the embarrassing BV symptoms. I got my life back. find conventional way to swallow ...

Rub the pill with some butter. Makes it go down so easy and no bad taste! Drinks lots of water and take with food. No bad side effects so far. On day 1.

I am on the 500mgx2x7. I've found that the side affects are worse if this is taken without food. I took my second pill after eating only an apple, big mistake. When I take it with a full meal I get a little lethargic and kind of bloated feeling but it's manageable. Definitely take with food

Comment:
I took this medication a few months ago for a week after being diagnosed with BV. It made me horribly ill; headache, fatigue, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and I was VERY anxious. Of course I got a yeast infection after I was done with treatment. Also, the BV came back a few months later. I am now on the gel, and my experience (so far) is much better. I'm still experiencing fatigue, but I'l ... Show Full Comment
