    I have to defend the "bad taste" crowd because it was never the actual taste of the pill for me and, I didn't get the constant, stomach churning, salty/soapy taste until the last day but I stopped taking it a week ago and the taste hasn't diminished a bit and its bad enough that its making me nauseous. That said, I know it will eventually and that infection wasn't going to g ... Show Full Comment

    I decided to write after reading all of the other very horible comments. 2 years ago I was diagnosed with BV. Flagyl was more than amazing. Everything cleared up.

    I almost did not take this medicine because of the reviews I read. I do not like taking meds as is, so my anxiety of new medicines, mixed with the horrible comments from this particular medicine, was enough to make me halt taking the pills for 5 days after getting the prescription. I decided to try the natural route first (yogurt, tea oil, etc). Finally, when I realized my condition was not gettin ... Show Full Comment
