This medicine does have a metallic taste but it's a lifesaver. Thought I had a yeast infection...and no...it was a UTI along with BV. With being someone who has never had a problem 'down-there' before...I was freaked out. I had BV for almost 2 months and was about to go crazy! I used many things trying to get rid of BV before this one and this medicine finally worked. After the 2nd da ... Show Full Comment

The taste was horrible! I took only one dose consisting of 2 tablets, I'm one of those who find it very difficult to swallow tablets. I couldn't bear to take them any more even though I had enough for 5days. My infection cleared up, though I think thats due to a drug SPORASEC(which was prescribed along with metronidazole) which is a green and white capsule that was great to take:)

And as far as the alcohol intake ... Show Full Comment
