Still having side effects 2 days after stopped taking

Posted , 2 users are following.

I was prescribed Metronidazole for an infection but had to stop taking the tablets because the side effects just buily up and up from a bad taste and feeling a bit drowsy to feeling sick tired and unable to coordinate. On the 3rd day of the tablets I found that I just couldnt do anything but go to bed and go to sleep as I felt so absolutely dreadful. I stopped taking them but still 2 days later I am experiencing fatigue. One minute I`m fine and the next I just have to sit down I`m so tired and I cant think straight. I`m hoping this is just going to wear off. Has anyone else had these after effcts as I`m really starting to worry there might be more to it.

I absolutely will never take these tablets again and am always going to check out info from other sources before taking tablets prescribed by a doctor again.

    I had 3 days of metronidazole and have finished the course for 3 days and feel awful. Foggy brained, no energy, no concentration, sick and wobbly.

    The alarming thing is I told my dentist I was allergic to Flagyl following internal bleeding when I had it before, and yet he has prescribed this. It is quite disturbing to find out this stuff is the same as Flagyl.

    It is so difficult getting to see any NHS dentists though, that I dare not change my dentist or postpone the appointment to have the tooth removed.
