Tindamax at full dose made me extremely nauseous. I would have projectile vomiting and couldn't hold my head up.

My llmd cut the dose to 1/4 of what I started with and it's more tolerable.

Does she have Zofran or any other nausea meds?

Poor thing..I feel for her.

I get pains in my stomach (like an ulcer) on the days I take it and this last time I was dizzy. I just didn't feel well.

Sorry your daughter is having such problems with Tindamax...it is a great drug...my daughter takes it 3 days on and then 4 days off...she has had no problems with it.

Maybe starting with half a pill and working up to a full dose might help..

Good luck...

I have tried tindamax, flagyl and grapefruit seed extract for cyst...I was surprised that the grapefruit seed extract actually caused me to herx (and I dont usually herx)...it must be an effective alternative

I was prescribed 3 pills twice a day. Knowing what I do, I started at 1 pill once a day, for 2 days, then increased to 2 pills a day, and finally to 3 pills a day.

The only symptom I had from it was metallic mouth.
