In brief: Flagyl

I notice you are jaundiced, has a protozoan infection been ruled out, such as Entameba hidtolytica.
This protozoan can cause liver abscesses which in turn can cause jaundice. As such you might want to consult a liver specialist. This could be a reason that the drug is not working. On rare occasions Flagyl can cause jaundice
