Metronidazole: Well, actually side effects may potentially occur with any medications. With Metronidazole some of the more common possible SE's include nausea, vomiting, decreased appetite, abdominal pain, diarrhea, constipation, rash, itching, vaginal itching w discharge, mouth sores etc. Don't know what type of parasite infection you have - but you would be better off without it.
