    This medication was prescibed at 2000 mg a day (2 500 mg pills twice daily) for two days. My pharmacy didn't have it right away so I started on a Friday night.

    I am currently on the tindamax and have yet to finish (I am on day 2 of 5) and I have had only the metallic taste and a bit of runny nose. It started working the first day and the metallic taste can be fixed for me by eating some fruit snacks immediately after taking the pill.

    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.

    Comment:
    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. After recurring for 1 1/2 and visiting two different doctors, finally went to my Gyno, and she gave me this medicine a two day treatment which I've NEVER had before and I've used the others for like 8 ...
