After battling BV for nearly 4 months, trying natural remedies that failed, I gave in and began this antibiotic. Within 24 hours all symptoms of BV are gone.

Definitely killed my infection after 2 months of not being diagnosed, so that was great. But what WASN'T so great was the side effects.

I have had to take this medication several times, its disgusting. It doesn't matter what I drink or what I eat, the taste lingers all day long. Also bad nausea with this medication. It works getting rid of the infection but taking it is horrible.
