I have been prescribed flagyl for a peri anal fistula/abscess – may I ask what dose you’re on?
I was on 3 a day of the 400mg and found initially taking them that they made me very nauseas, tired, weak and sick. This is the bacteria being killed off and sent into your blood – causing the negative symptoms. After a while the symptoms lessened for me but I guess it is different for everyone. I found it worth it for the lessening of pain of my abscess. At the moment I’m alternating between 3 a day and 2 a day of the 400mg because they are still making me quite sick.

I must have been prescribed a much higher 400mg dose 3 x day. I do find it hard to tolerate but the other option is having an abscess poisoning you so it’s the lesser of two evils I guess
