I was prescribed this medication for 7 days ×a day.for the first 4 days I had severe diarrhea, where I actually couldn't eat anything and stand next to the bathroom everywhere I go. It had been 5 days from since I finished my mesication.. I do have an odor (which I did not have before) and my vagina just feels so dry. I will be going to see a specialist very soon.

I think the infection is gone, and I'm so glad I'm almost done with this medication. The side effects aren't good. Why can't the drug companies make medications without ... Show Full Comment

Today has been my second day taking the drug. I cant take pills so I crushed them up and mixed with applesauce. I couldnt even taste the pill. I am taking the pill after eating a good sized meal. The symptoms of BV are going away and no side effects yet. Will update on day 7.

After my first day, my BV symptoms were gone. So this is a very effective medication. I had dark urine, and the horrible taste of this pill makes it difficult to swallow since it just dissolved the moment it touched my tongue.
