 1  bacterial vaginitis Debilitating depression, suicidal thoughts (please don't take if you have history of depression). Also nausea, fever, abdominal pain and slight metallic taste all of which would have been bearable if it weren't for the emotional turmoil.I finished the dose because I didn't find out until day 7 that this was most likely the cause of my increased depression, it did clear the bacterial infection but gave me a yeast infection which I took diflucan for. Take my advice and try another antibiotic it may save your life and your sanity! F 34 7 days

 1  C Diff I was prescribed a 14 day course for a c diff infection...Never felt so horrible in my life, not from the c diff, but from this medication! I had every side effect in the book...darkened urine, foul taste in mouth, itchiness, muscle pains, anxiety, depression, crying spells, feeling absolutely hopeless, anorexia, enlarged lymph nodes, slight tingling in right thumb, extreme lethargy (could barely get out of bed or up off the couch.) Asked my MD to stop after day 10, he said to stick it out...when i had unexplained bruising on day 12, that was it, refused to take any more. While it did clear up my C Diff infection very quickly, it was like i was being poisoned, never again. Thank God for this forum, i would have thought i was losing my mind. F 45 10 days

 1  C diff Worsening of diarrhea previously held in check with Welchol and Enteragam. Very nauseous and no appetite. Talked to drs asst. and was told to finish all the Flagyl, take on a full stomach, and basically just tough it out. She told me the symptoms should ease up a bit. Its hard to take on a full stomach when you are nauseous and on the verge of throwing up. I will continue to take the stuff as the disease is supposed to be very dangerous when left untreated. I think the drug manufacturers and doctors should be forced to take this med so they could know what the sick patient feels like. F 60 14 days

 1  Intestinal infection So relieved to see others with same side affects. Not that I would wish them on anybody, but only that it helped to know I wasn't loosing my mind! After about 5 days of taking this horrific medicine I started having uncomfortable pain in the upper part of my back, weakness in my arms & legs, & fatigue. On about day 8 I woke up with my skin feeling very hot (like a burn), my heart racing & feeling panicky, dry mouth & constant urination. I talked with the doctor & I was labeled a worrier & was told to continue taking it. I became so tired & weak I could hardly stand and would shake rigorously. Depression, foggy mind, confusion, despair & sleeplessness were now setting in. I ended up in the ER with dehydration, low sodium & potassium levels, rapid heart rate & high blood pressure. I didn't know how much longer I could take it. I've been through a lot of things in my lifetime, to include taking chemotherapy, but this experience has been by far the F 57 10 days

 1  c. dif NAUSEA, LIGHTHEADEDNESS, INABILITY TO CONCENTRATE, FEELING OF DOOM, METALLIC TASTE, FURRY TONGUE, THOUGHT I WAS DYING. THIS MEDICATION IN MY OPINION SHOULD BE TAKEN OFF THE MARKET. I HAVE TAKEN A LOT OF DIFFERENT MEDS IN MY LIFETIME, AND I AM ALLERGIC TO A LOT OF THEM. BUT THIS IS ANOTHER STORY ALTOGETHER. IT IS ONE THING TO HAVE AN ALLERGY, EVEN AS SEVERE AS ANAPHYLACTIC SHOCK, WHICH I HAVE HAD, BUT THIS MED MAKES YOU WISH YOU WERE DEAD. I AM A VERY HAPPY PERSON WHO HAS A GREAT OUTLOOK ON LIFE. I WILL NEVER TAKE THIS MED AGAIN. I AM PLAQUED WITH UTI'S. I RECENTLY HAD TO TAKE AMOXICILLIN AND ROCEPHIN SIMULTANEOUSLY WHICH LED TO C.DIF. I WAS TESTED LAST WEEK AND I AM NEGATIVE FOR C.DIF. HOWEVER, I STILL HAVE DIARRHEA AND GAS LIKE NEVER BEFORE. I HAVE STOMACH PAINS. I THINK FLAGYL DID ME IN. F 75 10 days

 2  C. Diff (lower GI infection) Flagyl was prescribed to be for my C. Diff infection. C. Diff is a terrible infection to have but the side effects of Flagyl made me feel awful 24/7. Everything tasted metallic, my tongue felt furry and my stomach was so upset that I struggled eating. Taking the medicine itself was a challenged because it tastes really horrible no matter how fast you gulp it down. I suggest eating lots of yogurt with it to rid the bad taste. Unfortunately, I only lasted 10 doses before I couldn't take it anymore. This caused my infection to recur about a week and a half later. Now, I must go through another round of Flagyl and stick to it according to my doctor. Flagyl, is a very effective drug but do try and push through to take every dose, not miss any and follow through. You don't want to have to take it again! C. Diff is a NASTY infection that you don't want! I had to take Flagyl as a result of contracting an infection from taking a previous antibiotic called Clindamycin. I was prescribed Clindamycin by my gyno because I had a BV infection. However. the Clindamycin was too high of a dosage to the point where it wiped out the good bacteria in my lower GI causing an infection called C. Diff. Beware when your doctor prescribes Clindamycin, always question the dosage and duration!!!! F 22 10 days

 1  BV Pill got stuck in my throat and I almost threw up every time. Finally dreaded it so much I could not take the last pill. Symptoms started with nausea, back pain, and muscle weakness. By day 3 I got used to it but still felt weird like I wasn't really there. The worst side effects happened after I stopped. Weird white discharge and itchiness, which prompted me to search message boards and realize that my irritability and tearfulness are probably side effects too. I just got into a new relationship and was fine until I started getting all paranoid and upset, almost walked away but I really think it's this damn pill. This is day 3 since I stopped taking them and I hope I feel like myself soon. :( I will not take this again. Horrible. F 38 7 days

 4  jaw infection Insomnia was the only really troubling side effect for me. Slight metallic taste in mouth around day 3, but was gone within 24 hrs. Very mild diarrhea, stomach was a bit more acidic than usual but nothing I couldn't deal with. Always took with full meal, had NO ALCOHOL (even mouthwash with alcohol is too much on this med according to my pharmacist) and took every 8 hours with orange Gatorade (helps with bad taste from pill while it's on your tongue). Be gentle with your body while on this med. I found that not having caffeine, any NSAIDs (ibuprofen, aspirin, naproxen, etc.) or anything harsh on the stomach lining works best. DO NOT DRINK ALCOHOL while on this med - EVEN ONE DRINK. The med causes the body not to be able to eliminate it from your system and it WILL make you very, very ill. Read the pamphlet that comes with the med. It states this very clearly and it's nothing to mess around with. Overall, my symptoms are gone from the jaw infection (pain, swelling) and I would take this med again for a severe infection - all meds have side effects, but if the alternative is a severe illness or death, it's well worth it to me. You may have to make a few lifestyle changes while on the med (no alcohol or caffeine, as mentioned above) but isn't it worth it for a week or two to clear up a raging infection? I think so...

 1  suspected diverticulitus Extreme fatigue, headache, disorientation, stomach cramps, loss of appetite, slightly blurry vision, possible increase in blood pressure, diarrhea, bad taste in mouth, lite headed. This medication along with doxycycline was prescribed by primary care for suspected diverticulitis infection. GI doc did not know about infection, waiting for CT scan but recommended taking anyway to eliminate possibility of infection. Primary care originally had me on 2000 mg a day, no way on that so GI lowered to 1000 mg a day. I am an active person, walk 3 miles a day, do martial arts, and hit the gym several days a week after a day on this pretty much on couch watching TV, no energy to do anything else. I also live rural and have an hour drive over a two lane mountain road to work, called GI doc and offered that vision was slightly blurry and driving may not be safe-they offered to stay on the medication for the full 10-day course. I don't think I can do this as am house bound. I may offer that for folks who have a verified condition and this drug is "necessary" for treatment, although horrific in regards to side effects, take it with reservations, keeping the possible side effects in mind. However, for folks who have a "suspected" condition and the provider wants to "shotgun" treatment on a suspicion, be wary, especially in regards to the potential side effects. M 48 5 days

 4  BV I just had major surgery 12 days ago (hysterectomy), so I am taking Percocet and 800 MG of Motrin for pain as well as Colace to help me poop and then I get this BV on top of all of this. I called my doctor and he prescribed this God Awful Medicine. This is about the 3Rd time Ive been prescribed this and have never made it thru a cycle completely. Im on my 4th day out of a 10 day script and I cringe each time I have to take it (2x day) because of the Gross metallic taste in mouth, have to take it with grape soda and eat a snack afterwards to mask the taste. The other side effects aren't too bad ( dark urine, green stool,somewhat weird dreams, loss of apetite, nausea and some fatigue) considering the pain I'm in from having my gut cut open and trying to get up and walk around to ease the pain and swelling. It seems to have cleared up my BV as I no longer see the results from that but now I just have to grin and bear it and take this crap for 6 more days to complete my cycle so hopefully it won't come back. Next time I'll ask my doctor for an alternative medicine as I don't think I can make it thru another cycle of taking this drug. F 50 10 days

 1  C diff This drug is horrible I have depression anxiety muscle aches nausea phlegm constantly in my throat abdominal cramping... I'm moody I'm anxious I feel depersonalized I'm dizzy and I have a very uncoordinated sense of balance.... My mind is very foggy I started to think I was losing my mind then I spent a couple of hours looking on the internet at all the side effects of this drug... it's absolutely horrible But c. diff can turn into a life-threatening condition so I'm forced to take it I'm on my 5th day and a pharmacist told me that I wouldn't get vancomycin unless I went to the hospital and she said she had never heard of any of the side effects I think she's nuts... I read through about 10 reviews on this site and one of the ladies was a nurse and she repeated verbatim the exact side effects I'm having and the funny thing is is I had all the side effects before I started reading about it so I know its not the placebo effect.... I got CD from taking an antibiotic for an inflamed tissues and then I ended up on this and now I've got a horrible yeast infection because of it too I'm going to continue on a it because I want the cdiff to definitely go away... I used to be a pharmaceutical sales representative and in all honesty I've never seen a drug so horrible and cause such wretched side effects F 45 7 days

 4  stomach bacteria I've taken this drug once before and am just starting on it again, four years later. So far, it seems to have helped (as it did last time.) I'm taking it in conjuction with Cipro, which I started two days earlier and experienced no side effects (nor do I ever, with Cipro.) Flagyl is an entirely different story. Read the patient enclosure; it's there for a reason. The headache, diarrhea, taste in mouth I am already experiencing, as I expected. Because the diarrhea can be INTENSE, this time I will stay on the BRAT diet until I finish the Flagyl, thereby keeping the diarrhea a bit more manageable. Also drinking sports drinks to keep the fluid/electrolytes more or less in balance. My experience is that if you're taking Flagyl, though, expect to be housebound. F 60 1 days

I ended up in hospital 2 days ago with raised blood pressure ( normally it's low) lost vision in right eye evening before, numbness down one side that is still all over my head to-date. I feel terrible as can't stand up without feeling dizzy and head feels foggy and aching all the time. I have tried to google help but not having much luck. Some say try Sulbutiamine a synthetic Thiamine but I'm afraid to put anything else in my system. Others say it is due to candida increase?

I took the drug for three days. The first night I had an anxiety attack, but didn't connect it to the drug. Day two I walked myself into the ED, because I felt 'strange', and when I took my pulse it was 136 bpm. Blood pressure at ED was 160/98, which got me a bed immediately. ED doc gave me ativan, and said that sometimes Flagyl caused a reaction like this, and gave me more ativan for later. Stopped taking flagyl on day 3. Experienced symptoms listed on an ongoing basis for nearly two months. Felt like I was going crazy. Every time that I discussed symptoms with doctors felt dismissed and as though they weren't making the connection between the flagyl and the symptoms/side effects. Didn't feel fully myself until 3 months after taking drug. Even now, a year later, I still occasionally don't feel quite right. Would not take again, frankly - if it came to a choice between dying or taking the drug, I'll go out and start digging. F 34 3 days

This was the only medicine that actually stopped my infection, so I believe that it really does work. I had a severe infection that spread into my ovaries and gave me PID. The side effects are pretty terrible, it messed up my ears bad and it took them three months to heal before I stopped having pain and could hear all the way again. I am grateful that it got rid of the infection though, because cipro and amoxacillin didn't even make a dent in it! F 22 7 days

 1  Shigellosis dark urine, sore bladder, metallic taste, loss of appetite, very weak and shaky especially my legs, lethargy, dizzy, anxiety, thrush afterwards. The worst thing about this for me was the incredible weakness, like your body was shutting down. On trying to stand, your muscles feel like jello, quivery and no coordination. Felt dizzy and scared. Heart rate was high, and jittery and nervous. I had no appetite, with slight nausea. I was on Cipro at the same time 500 mg 2x daily, so some of these side effects may be from it I suppose. It has been a week since I finished the dose, and I feel about 60% back to normal. I am still off work even though the infection was cleared up. I mostly feel too weak and dizzy to drive my car, and have to lay down to rest every few hours, and I am only sitting up for an hour or so at a time. Taking a shower wipes me out. I do seem to be getting better every day, now, though it is slow going, so hang in there if you are still feeling the effects. One of the other people on here told me it took them about two weeks to feel normal again, So the main thing is to know there is hope of recovery. F 52 14 days

That is the worrying part - thinking that it is something else when it is still the Flagyl side effects. Thanks to this site if now know that it is all Flagyl. Subsequent test have revealed that I am now clear of the parasite. M 38 8 days
