This med made me feel wiped out but I didn't get sick from it. Like others have said, it works fast. It's REALLY important to eat with this med or you will feel terrible. If you eat with it or at least drink milk you should be fine the only side effect I had was feeling tired. I stress eat with it and yes it has a bad taste if it's in your mouth too long I noticed if I took it with jui ... Show Full Comment

I have taken this twice before & am about to start another 7day treatment for my recurring condition. I have never enjoyed the experience in the past & even though I have the prescription already I haven't mustered up the courage to start it yet.

I was prescribed Flagyl for bacterial vaginosis. It killed the vaginosis. Unfortunately it also killed my appetite. It got so bad that I was counting calories to make sure I was getting the minimum 800 a day the average adult needs for basic subsistence. I was like the walking dead by the end of it. Never again with the oral version of this drug. I would consider the cream though.

Comment:
Taking this medicine for BV, definitely has cleared the Vaginosis but have had several side effects. Leaves a horrible metallic taste in my mouth and constantly queasy. Vomited a few times, generally first thing in the morning with the metallic taste. Big loss of appetite as well.
