Flagyl antibiotic

Has anybody else ever taken this antibiotic and experienced really bad nausea and dry heaving? OMG I finally just took my last pill tonight and I've had the worst nausea and loss of appetite. Yuck. I'm glad I'm done with it. Other than zithromax, this is the WORST antibiotic I have ever taken.

  • I've taken it before and I don't remember having the side effects you mentioned, but I do remember that it did not clear up my infection. It may be possible that you are having an adverse reaction and need to take something else in the future.

  • Did you get any information when you picked it up at the pharmacy counter?

  • I have only ever giving flagyl to my dogs for intestinal parasites. Never taken it myself. I have had issues with some meds though, yes.
