I am currently on tindamax (tinidazole) 500mg and I have to take 1 tablet a day 4x's a day with food. So far no bad things have happened other than that metallic taste in my mouth. So other side effects as long as I eat something with it and drink lots of water.

Was diagnosed with BV many years ago, but for some odd reason doctors kept prescribing Metrogel or Cleocin, which to me didnt really help long term, because the infections kept coming back.

The only side effects I don't have are constipation, metallic taste in my mouth and vomiting. I'm on day 3 of 5 (500mg 2x)and I feel horrible. I have no idea if it is helping my infection, cause I didn't know I had one. Feel the yeast infection coming up though! It seems to interact with my anti depressants, making everything much worse. Calling my dr a.s.a.p.

Comment:
My doctor gave me this to clear up an infection. While it worked for the infectio, it also caused a severe metallic taste in my mouth accomponied by severe heartburn, nausea and flu-like symptoms. At this point it has been 4 days since my last dose and the effects are still severe. Not worth the discomfort to me.
