Hi there - we have 5 days left taking the flagyl and doxycycline for this H Pylori. Three - four days into this my husband has noticed a very definite improvement in the pain in his anal area. When he is up and around or lying in bed he is not focusing on the usual discomfort in that area. Quite a relief for him actually.
Is the flagyl somehow responsible for this improvement? If so of course he is wondering if that means it will be returning once he no longer needs this medication which is hopefully getting rid of the H Pylori in addition to the doxyclycline.
(I'll be so glad to be off these - very harsh and the taste in my mouth is gross no matter how often I brush my teeth, have a mint etc.)
