Just learned thru this site that Flagly/Metroniazole side effect can be Peripheral Neuropathy ie peroneal nerve palsy foot drop is just that. My husband took a course of this drug for Cdif that was discovered right at the end of his long hospital stay. We are going to discuss with Neurologist. Anyone else has info on this? thanks

I have a friend who was on Flagyl and suffered from foot numbness/tingling and I would be concerned regarding his symptoms and it would be best to discuss it with a neurologist.

Please keep us posted.
