I was on a constant dose of Flagyl over this past winter. I know we are not supposed to post doses, but this was a very high dose (e.g. WildCondor style).

Near the end of my 3 months of this flagyl (still winter), I started getting noticeably cold hands and occasionally feet. The color would change in them. My primary care doc (not my LLMD) diagnosed it as raynaud's phenomenon. My LLMD immediately told me to cease taking Flagyl.

As spring came with warmer temperatures, the symptoms eased. Now in the last couple weeks, they came rip roaring back this time with increased peripheral neuropathy. I knew I had a problem when it was 90 degrees out and I got cold feet and wanted to go put on two pairs of socks.


However, this scares me as it never happened in my years of treating lyme - before flagyl. I have not taken any Flagyl now for 4 months.

Anyone else have this happen after taking large, long doses of Flagyl?

I don't think this is why I have Raynaud's. I had it prior to taking flagyl. But flagyl is known to cause peripheral neuropathy.

I would suggest that flagyl not be taken again if you can avoid it.

Try increasing your intake of high quality magnesium. I have found great relief by taking ReMag an ReLyte.

PS .. This is the first summer in two years that I'm not having to wear jeans, socks and sneakers in 90 degree weather.

double PS .. Taking B vitamins may also help.
