Metronidazole For Uti
Metronidazole: You can take it, but it will probably be a worthless exercise. This antibiotic is primarily effective against obligate anaerobic bacteria, which seldom if ever cause lower urinary tract infections. It is effective against some conditions like trichomoniasis, Cl. Difficile colitis, amoebiasis, etc., but would not recommend it for UTI. If you are treating yourself recommend you see a doctor. ...Read more

I have a UTI and I took some metronidazole for the bacteria and now my urine is brown. Is this normal?
UTI Treatment: In my experience I usually take a sample of urine and do an analysis of the urine. If I suspect an infection, or in the patient has symptoms of an infection, I send the urine to the lab for a culture which will tell me if bacteria grow and what type of bacteria. Also, this will tell me what antibiotic is the best to treat the infection.Metronidazole is not usually used for UTI. ...Read more

Igot UTI I treated it twice wit uniflocaxin and metronidazol drip and gentamycin. But I still feel pains while I pee I can't control my pee for 2second?
Discuss w/ your doc: This is unusual treatment for UTI, and makes me wonder whether you had some other kind of infection in your abdomen, or perhaps in your upper genital tract. Either way, such treatment is used only for complex infections and there is no way this can be answered by a distant expert on this or any other forum. You'll need to keep working with your doctor (s). Good luck! ...Read more

Finished Ciprobay treatment for UTI. I'm still taking Flagyl. Each time I take Flagyl, my next pee is painful. Is it the med or UTI is still there?
More likely UTI: Cipro (ciprofloxacin)bay is an excellent antibiotic for UTIs, but unfortunately we are seeing an increasing # of Cipro (ciprofloxacin) resistant UTIs. Painful urination is not a known side effect of Flagyl. Thus my advice is to get your urine cultured & have your Dr. Prescribe another antibiotic. Hopefully she/he sent urine specimen for culture & sensitivities so she/he would know of a satisfactory alternative antibiotic 4 you ...Read more
I was treated for trich & a UTI about a week ago. 2000 Flagyl and a little bag of amoxicillin. I now have lime green clumpy discharge. What is it?
Vaginal discharge: Sounds like lime green clumpy discharge of unknown etiology. All kidding aside, this can only be accurately diagnosed after being seen and possibly cultured. There are several bacteria, including pseudomonas (which is resistant to what you have taken) that can produce secondary overgrowth infections. In order to clear it up it may have to be cultured and examined under a microscope. Good luck. ...Read more

Doc said I had herpes. Never had bumps tho. But clitoris was swollen & uti. Took Flagyl and it cleared up except now it's just red & a bit itchy.
Herpes: A viral culture at the time the rash breaks out (especially if there are blisters) will confirm the diagnosis. Flagyl won't treat herpes but perhaps the herpes healed by itself during the time you were on the flagyl. After a few weeks (about 8 for your immune system to develop a response) you could get a blood test to see if you have antibodies against herpes. If you don't then you didn't have it. ...Read more
