- Looking for other testimonies who have had more severe side effects than those listed from taking metronidazole & alcohol? (1 answer)
Had 4 beers over 4 hour period on last day of taking Metronidazole. Was vomiting & basically acting totally out of character as in wild & argumentative - similar to being bad drunk. Went to sleep & woke up with basically no memory of what happened.
- I have pouchitis.is there any cure for it.antibiotics do not help.is there any chance that imuran will help or something else?help please! (1 answer)
Since I was 16 years old I strugle with Ulcerative Colitis.Year and a half ago my colon was removed.So, now I have J-pouch and it seems that colon removement caused severe pouchitis.When I use antibiotics it seems that everything is good,but when i stop using them ,everything gets even worse.
I tried low dose of corticosteroides,colifoam but nothing seems to be working,so I am desperate.
Now for a two and a half months I have been using Imuran(Azathioprine).Can you tell is it going to help me, or should I try something else.
Please!Can somebody help me?
Thank you in advance.
- Is anyone here being treated for h pylori? (2 answers)
Diagnosed with H-pylori and am challenged with pharmophobia (which is a phobia for taking any kind of medication in any form)also anxiety, and agoraphobia which extends to too many things such as driving, going out alone, chocolate, cherries and the list goes on. Can anyone tell me if they are or has taken these medicines together and what was the out come? Side affects, how long it took to get better, and if the weight came back after treatment. I have gone from 156 pds to 140 and it gets lower some days. haven't taken the meds yet and am seeing a counselor to help get me to that point.
- I used metrogel and now i have severe incontinence. i'm also on ant-depressants. please help
I went for a routine check up to my gynae and she noticed an inflammation or something and prescribed Metrogel. I followed the rules for hygiene and administered the gel. After the 5th day I developed this feeling of incontinence(urgently wanting to badly pee but just a few drops come out) I spoke to my gynae about it and she said I must use citrosoda. I tried Interflora probiotic and yoghurt and overnight it seemed to be okay. Its two days and although its a little better it means that I can't be out of the house because I have to run urgently to the toilet all the time.

I am feeling fluttering in my lower abdomen like the same butterfly feeling when I was pregnant with my two boys. Some morning I wake up nauseous but for the moat part there are no other side effects..

- Cdifficile treatment
I had drug (cipro) induced cdifficile for three and a half years and was hospitalized 3 times and went through absolute hell until my Dr. finally agreed to do a fecal transplant. Even then the first transfer done via a lower bowel infusion didnt work. Two weeks after the first one he did a full colonoscopy transfer going up as high as my appendix and that one worked immediatly and I have had no furthur bowel problems, no diarrea at all and its' now been well over a year. I took every type of cdiff drug imaginable prior to that. I had to stay on Vancomyicin all the time or I would be spending all my time going back and forth to the john 20 or 30 times a day. I was so ill that I could bearly keep my head up. I couldnt eat without an urgent bathroom trip. I had to wear Depends all the time, my skin was raw and sore from constant wiping. I was given Tinture of Morphine to slow me down. That helped some. My veins collapsed from all the test shots and from the many pints of saline to keep me hydrated. My heart stopped from a lowering of my potassium level and I had to get a pacemaker to control my heart rate. I spent a fortune on the drugs,some costing as much as $1200.00 a month, more than I make working and working was rough. I would have to go to the restroom so often and I work outside where there were frequently no facilities. I would have to bring a complete change of clothes and a disinfecting kit with me to cleanup the restroom. I washed my hands raw. You cant leave that for someone else or they might get sick too as it is highly infectious. Hospitals are not that meticulous either. I once had to go to a Long Island Hospital that failed the precautions test miserably. They assigned me to a room with another patient whose family wanted to eat their meals in our shared room and then use the bathroom. I pitched a fit on them and told them no way were they going to eat in that room or use the bathroom. I can't imagine what that hospital was thinking. Anyway you get the idea....3 years of expensive treatment and all I needed was some healthy donor poop and someone willing to mix it up in a blender and put it in syringe and put it up the wassoo and I was done. Dont let them give you all the expensive treatment if you have a resistant case of cdiff, insist on the fecal transplant right off, you will be very glad you did. The donor should be someone in your family, preferably someone young with lots of good flora for digestion. Someone without other gut problems...they need to test them too. Bring it in the afternoon before and Bingo,you will be back on track the next day. I am open to answer questions or be tested orhelp with anything else you might want to know, just ask me.

Comments from related studies:
From this study (6 months ago):
The pulsating is not in rhythm with my heartbeat. It is fast and random beats. It is not constant. It is worse at night and if laying on the couch watching tv. Putting pressure and massaging right behind the ear and on the neck seem to help temporarily but returns after removing pressure. This has been going on for three days. I have been on the antibiotics for 6 days.
From this study (2 years ago):
My 5 year old daughter was prescribed with Amoxicillin, Metronidazole and Omeprazole after being diagnosed with hyplory some stomach bacteria. She was on the treatment for 7 days. She has not been the same. She started hallucinating, not sleeping at night, anxiety, depression symptoms’, name it. She has been behaving like someone with mental illness. Loss of concentration. She was referred to A&E paediatrics and most of the doctors had no clue what was wrong. Only one consultant agreed to the effect of the drugs. It has been 3 weeks and there is improvement.
Koren on Jan, 24, 2013:
You should read about PANDAS. You are describing all the hallmark symptoms. Children with this disorder have an incorrect autoimmune response to Strep, but often other infection trigger the same response which ultimately attacks the basal ganglia of the brain. Most likely, it was not the antibiotic that caused your daughter to behave like she was "suddenly" mentally ill. Instead, I would explore that her immune system was triggered by the infection. The reaction can take weeks or days to set in motion - which can be misleading to parents.
Carol on Feb, 4, 2013:
My daughter also had problems when on amoxicillin and they were NOT related to being sick. She'd had a deep filling and the dentist was trying to prevent an infection. The day before starting it, she had an amazing gymnastics meet. By the time she was on it a few days, she was behind the music and the other girls. She got in trouble at school and in the after school program when she normally does not. Her behavior at home was terrible. She failed a math exam that covered easy material she knew well. She will not be taking it again unless there are no other options. Metronidazole can cause peripheral nerve damage so I wouldn't be surprised if it affected brain function.
