- 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.
- Can sulfamethoxazole-tmp ds, raise or lower blood sugar. (1 answer)
Symptoms the last 10 days are chills, sweating, light fever (98.9 to 100) sometimes. General malaise, tired, poor sleep. Just depressed, because of the recurrent Infection that no antibiotics (supposedly the bacteria Klesiella-pneumoniae is Sensitive to all the antibiotics I have taken so far)has cleared this stuborn condition.

FYI GLAD TO HELP
- 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.
- Tingling feet and hands
I have used flagyl 3 times and after stopping the use of this medication my feet and hands have became so tingly and itchy That its becoming unbearable.
- Bactrim causes severe side effects (1 response)
I get bladder infections on a regular basis. I do not have a doctor so I end up in the ER every time. I normally go to the same ER but not all the time. I have been prescribed medications like Cipro and Bactrim. Cipro usually knocks out the infection but I always get another one.
For the last three years Doctors have been prescribing me Bactrim. In the last two months I had three bladder infections and took Bactrim for ten days seven and three. I didn't realize the medications themselves would harm me as well. Now I have severe abdominal pain every single day. I did some research on Bactrim and discovered it can cause several different kinds of stomach problems. I have been in pain for two months straight non-stop.
I finally discovered that the Bactrim killed both the good and bad bacteria in my body and now my digestive system is off balance. I went to a natural food store and bought some probiotics. It helped relieve some stomach pain after four days, but if I forget to take it one time it comes back. I think something is wrong with me but not exactly sure what. When I get a doctor next month I will update this article.
I just want to say that Bactrim has severe side effects, I DO NOT recommend taking this drug. Cipro is better in the long run.
- Something should be done....
Medicine had my kness aching badly. Cause my legs to lock up where I couldn't bend then. Had to elevate for 2weeks. Feeling better but they still hurt and knees keep popping. Had to take fluid pills cause they were so swollen.

i also feel pains after urinating for abt a minute before it stops and stats again when i urinate
Do not take all drugs listed at same time. Am on "pulse therapy" with antimacrobials. Do not take coq10 when on Mepron/malarone. Take Florastor probiotic 2x's a day to fight c.diff & other probiotics. Also take FiberSmart, DigestSmart, & slippery elm, marshmallow root for GI regularity. Drink at least 4 cups green tea daily. CDC confirmed lyme positive in 2010 (September), was bit in May of same year. Had psychiatric & cognitive dysfunction immediately following rash. Further testing show active infection in brain - neuro-lyme dx'd.
