I am so sick...and it's all because of Flagyl.

I was supposed to take an antibiotic break to work on Detox and Yeast.

Unfortunately, my immune system is down and I now have a vaginal infection that requires Flagyl.

I've only been on it for 3 days and I feel like I have the worst flu I've ever had. I don't know how my body can make it out of this hel*.


I can't do my normal detox (burbur, parsley, sydetox, Pekana) because they all have alcohol in them.

It's scaring me.

What does Flagyl hit?

Thanks Lymetoo and Tammy.

I'm on 500mg, 2x/day for 7 days.

Great. I was on Bicillin several mos ago...so that put Lyme into cyst form. Plus, I know I have parasites.

Does Mino also put Lyme into cyst form? I just recently stopped taking a low dose of that.

Yes, I think so.

1000mg a day is pretty rough

Sorry you are not feeling well.

Our daughter only took three doses of 500mg and she still feels like she is flaring from the Flagyl days later.

I take the same dose two weeks on and two weeks off.

Yes, it is going to stir up some serious herxing. Even when we started taking it, we had to build up to two weeks of being on it.

My husband and I joke about those two weeks because they were so hard. Now more than a year later, I rarely herx on those weeks anymore.

I hope you feel better. Detox what ever way you can.

Flagyl has been by far the worst drug that I've taken. I switched to Tindamax and it is still really tough, but I don't have nearly the amt of side effects. When I started flagyl, it really messed with my brain and psychiatric state.

Couldn't take another dose. I will see if Gyn can RX something else tomorrow.

This stuff is no joke. I thought I had herxed before...but nothing like this.

I just hope it gets out of my system ASAP.

I'm taking 500 mg of flagyl 2x/day (2nd week of a 3 week pulse). I've been using Burbur (from Nutramedix)1 or 2x/day to help with detox.

It never even occurred to me that it has alcohol in it... but I've had no problems yet.

Hey lax mom, you can put the nutramedix drops on a cake or so and let the alcohol evaporate. so the extrakt stays in the cake. Or warm up the glass a little.

Just put the drops in a glass of water and let it sit 10-15 min before drinking.

You may need to increase probiotics while taking flagyl. In my opinion it can make candida issues worse.

And I definitely think it works on babesia -- but by itself it is not enough to get rid of babesia.

I agree -- add alcohol tinctures to warm water and you should be able to continue taking those while on the flagyl -- just take them a couple of hours apart if possible.

Alinia might be another option. One of hubby's former LLMD's said that med contained flagyl plus something else -- could never confirm that statement though.

I dont believe anymore that new symptoms from flagyl are herxes.

It is simply a neurotoxic drug which you should be careful to take when you have a cns disease (which many of us have).

It's finally out of my system. Thank goodness!

It's so scary when you're in the middle of a herx/flare/med reaction it truly feels like there's no way out of it.

Bea: you were right about the yeast. It made mine worse.

sickmate: my CNS is already a mess. Flagyl just made things worse.

Oh glad you're better, it IS a very tough drug. My neuropathy became unbearable on it and I became severely depressed. At least now you know! Best lax mom!!

Flagy is hardcore. Once when I had a vaginal infection a doc prescribed me 2000mg for one day and I thought I would die. And it didn't even kill the vag. infection.
