    I took this medication for BV. I have two pills left. I believe the infection is gone. I experienced slight nausea, dark urine, frequent and urgent urination, tingly finger tips, stomach pain and mood changes. I think the infection is gone, and I'm so glad I'm almost done with this medication. The side effects aren't good. Why can't the drug companies make medications without ... Show Full Comment

    Today has been my second day taking the drug. I cant take pills so I crushed them up and mixed with applesauce. I couldnt even taste the pill. I am taking the pill after eating a good sized meal. The symptoms of BV are going away and no side effects yet. Will update on day 7.

    After my first day, my BV symptoms were gone. So this is a very effective medication. I had dark urine, and the horrible taste of this pill makes it difficult to swallow since it just dissolved the moment it touched my tongue. HOWEVER, after I competed my course I developed a yellow coating on the back of my tongue. I went to my dentist and he said it is ORAL THRUSH. So now I am currently taking N ... Show Full Comment

    After battling BV for nearly 4 months, trying natural remedies that failed, I gave in and began this antibiotic. Within 24 hours all symptoms of BV are gone. I'll continue the entire course to make sure it doesn't come back! Side effects have been yucky but certainly tolerable- stomach pain, occasional nausea and just feeling tired and yucky. Again, it's worth it to be rid of BV. ... Show Full Comment
