Just started amoxicillin/metronidazole combination treatment, will nausea last the whole treatment? feeling sick currently, and it's only day 1

Side effects: Metronidazole is known for causing nausea, although with this combination of antibiotics it could be the illness itself. I would DEFINITELY call the doctor who prescribed this treatment. Depending on what this is, you might not need the metronidazole at all. Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) could replace this combo and you would have very good 'coverage' for whatever that doc is trying to treat. Hope you can get help. ...Read more

I'm taking metronidazole 500mg 3x a day, is it normal to have a nausea feeling and is it safe for me to drink yakult?

Yes to nausea . .: Any antibiotic can cause nausea/vomiting or diarrhea. This is not an allergic reaction; just a potential side effect. Nausea, by itself, should not be a big enough problem to warrant stopping the medication. It is very important to avoid all ALCOHOL while taking any antibiotics, but especially with metronidazole, as the combination will make you very sick, and probably throw-up. Best of luck. ...Read more

Stop using it: There are other alternatives for rosacea. If you have an adverse reaction, stop using it immediately. Topical hydrocortisone may help. Do note that it is unusual to get nausea from a topical medication and thus one must not totally rule out other possibilities. ...Read more

Hi, suffer from gallstones, been put on metronidazole 400mg for mouth infection, woke up today with severe back pain &  feeling very nauseas and weak?

Not clear: Flagyl can make you very weak and sick if you take it with alcohol, but you should not get severe back pain from this. There are reports of pancreatitis and cholecystitis from flagyl, but these are very rare (and Flagyl is often used to treat acute cholecystitis). I would get in to see the physician who prescribed these to you as soon as possible, or go to the er if you can't get in today. ...Read more

Is there anything to relieve nausea from flagyl? Zofran (ondansetron) doesn't seem to be helping.

Nausea from meds: Controlling nausea can sometimes be a challenge. This side effect is very well known from flagyl. Upping the dose of the zofran may help, or your doc can try a different antiemetic such as reglan (metoclopramide) or compazine (prochlorperazine). My personal favorite is ginger-- usually I will eat 2 slices of the crystallized stuff or make a ginger tea by boiling a chunk of root for 10 min then adding honey to taste ...Read more

Given 7 day Flagyl prescription. Completed 5 days and don't think I can continue. Nausea, feeling of doom, uneasiness, etc.

Common side effects: These are common side effects of metronidazole (Flagyl). Check with your doctor to see if you should stop antibiotics completely or switch to something else for the remaining time. It is likely that 5 days is sufficient. ...Read more
