I mixed antibiotics with alcohol, once I started researching my sudden painful side effects, realized that was a bad idea. How can I help myself now?

I mixed antibiotics with alcohol, once I started researching my sudden painful side effects, realized that was a bad idea. How can I help myself now?

#1: Call your doctor: And stop the alcohol.Several antibiotics do not mix well with alcohol such as metronidazole, tinidazole & bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim).

Took a single four tablet dose of tinidazole yesterday morning. Still taste metallic in mouth. How long till taste goes away? When can I drink alcohol

Don't understand?: What does a metallic taste in your mouth have to do with drinking alcohol? Dysgeusia, the official name for a funny taste in the mouth, can persist for several days, and sometimes weeks. You are being treated for a fungal infection, and the more important issue is drinking while trying to combat an infection, and why when you can drink is so important to you? Might you have a problem? ...Read more

Can I take 1g of tinidazole with cereal, is cereal a good meal? Can I take tinidazole with multi with iron?

Can I take 1g of tinidazole with cereal, is cereal a good meal? Can I take tinidazole with multi with iron?

Yes - tinidazole: Can be taken with food. It may actually reduce some of the side-effects such as nausea associated with it. And I'm a fan actually of cereal -particularly the more 'natural' ones that are on the market. I'm against sugar and refined cereals, but you can find whole grain cereals that are organic and high in fiber. There shouldn't be any problem with your multivitamin and iron tablet. Take care. ...Read more
