    I am allergic to many antibiotics,so I am always fearful to take a new one. I was so uncomfortable, and in pain with this infection, and knew I had to start taking the Metronidazole. After doing some research, I found that this is often given to dogs for intestinal bacteria. Well, I figured if a dog could handle it, then I could too. It does taste terrible but if you hide it in food, it is tolera ... Show Full Comment

    I'm took it for BV and my doctor wanted me to take it by mouth twice daily! By the fourth day it had cleared up! Only thing is that every night I would get this nasty taste in my mouth and on one day my urine got darker! There really wasn't any bad side effects! Take with food to reduce nausea!

    I had a bad bv & took this. I love how fast it works. To prevent a yeast infection I am taking probiotics (eating yogurt and inserting plain yogurt in vagina) two hours after taking this pill. I am on day 4 and no more symptoms.. so far so great! The only side effect is sharp nasty taste in mouth throughout the day .

This is THEE nastiest pill I have ever taken! It starts dissolving immediately after you put it in your mouth. The taste is indescribable. Now I take a sip of whatever I'm drinking fill my mouth up and th ... Show Full Comment
