I was suspicious of this at first since it looks like some kind of industrial silicone you'd use to caulk floor tiles, and since I had no symptoms leading me to believe that I had BV. My doctor prescribed two courses a day for five days, and the pharmacy was in shock and didn't believe her, so it took a few days to even get the meds. Once I started, I had headaches, but those quickly went ... Show Full Comment

Ive had BV for many years now, a pretty bad case of it. Last year I took the pill form (Flagyl) and it didnt work for me very well.

I have an overgrowth of gardnerella so my dr prescribed this medication to use for 5 nights. The only side effect I had was diarrhea on day 4. However, this drug didn't do anything for me at all and we're not sure why.

Comment:
I'm so glad I found these reviews. I can't say or not if this has cleared up my BV or not, but the side effects are horrible. I am getting severe stomach cramps (feels like someone punched me in the stomach), nausea, decreased appetite, mild dry mouth, some weird discharge, and fatigue. I thought this would only be side effects of the oral drug, but apparently after reading some reviews on ... Show Full Comment
