 1  BV Dry tongue, nausea, loss of appetite, dizziness, foggy brain, loss of taste, burning skin, I didn't finish taking them! I was already nauseated on day 3; On Day 3 I was chewing gum and it felt like I had cotton mouth about 10 minutes into chewing. I believe I developed oral thrush, and then had to deal with treating that also!!! Nausea subsided about 3 days after stopping medication, foggy brain and zoning out stopped about 2 weeks after stopping the medication! I'm so annoyed because my doctor was okay with my using boric acid suppositories and I was adamant about taking medication for BV, so she prescribed the metronidazole. I wish I didn't take them :( These meds are waaaaaaay too strong!! And for the burning skin, I felt like a pinch on my right arm throughout the day, thought I was going crazy. Sigh! F 27 7 days

 1  H Pylori Ok so i took this for H Pylori which was diagnosed because i complained about stomach cramps to my GP who asked me to drop off a stool sample. Preceeding this i was very active , outgoing and pretty happy. I rowed daily, lifted weights 2 - 3 times a week and played with my 3 yr old son and walked my dog for an hour a day along with working full time as a nurse. I started taking Metronidazole 800mg and 2000mg of Amoxicillan and 40mg of Omeprazole daily qfter my test came back positive. I immediately felt sick after my first Metronidazole but soldiered on to work. Day 2 awful leg pains and genuinely i felt stiff and sore and like a very old man. Tired , agitated, short tempered, and anxious. By then end of the week i had terrible stomach pain, leg pain, depressed and just horrible to be around. I lost 4 kilos and looked like death warmed up. I am now on my second week of sick leave and as Friday approaches i will certainly need to call my gp to get qnother sick line as i still have terrible leg pain , sickness, stomach pain, fatigue and low mood. I have during this 2 weeks been to A&E as i felt so awful at the weekend who prescribed me more Omeprazole, Peptac and anti- sickness tablets and co-codamol. I hate taking drugs so despite my symptoms i am only taking the peptac and omeprazole. Diet is chicken, kale and sweet potatoes . Greek yogurt with manuka honey and i am taking probiotics. I called my GP yesterday who assures me that this will clear up and i do Awful medication. M 45 7 days

 1  Just topical for acne Numbness and tingling fingertips feet, and sometimes in face. Anxiety/panic attacks. Did not realize until very late that the small amount of topical med was doing this. Stopped it 8 months ago but still have the numbness/tingling. Have been checked for every disease/issue: diabetes, MS, thyroid, Covid, Lyme, B12 deficiency. I have none of these. I believe it was the medication. F 53 3 years

 3  Bv Horrible taste in mouth constantly, alteration in tastebuds,nausea, feeling very spaced out ,Tearfulness , uncharacteristic Depression, Diarrhoea, Exhaustion . Anxiety. Exhaustion days after stopping medication. Although the medication worked for the infection and cleared it up , I am concerned that there needs to be stronger warnings about the effects of this medication from a psychological viewpoint .Normally a positive and emotionally resilient individual I haven't felt this weepy and depressed since I was an adolescent and I can imagine this could be even more problematic for those with mental health problems . Very concerning. Still exhausted and I completed the medication 3 days ago . F 51 7 days

 4  BV - The biggest caveat is the cravings for sweets. I would want them all the time. Like cupcakes (but more so the frosting), donuts, candy.... - Ended up with weight gain from the sweets. - very irritable and big mood swings (I also have cyclothymia, so I think this just increased the symptoms) - headaches and fatigue - clumpy white discharge - lower abdominal pain/cramping The medication works though and the side effects weren't that bad. It was only for 5 days so it isn't a big deal. The benefits outweigh the side effects. F 25 5 days
