Flagyl make me way sicker when I took it.  The pills I was taking had lactose as an ingrediant. I am highly sensitive to lactose.

It didn't help me and I got thrush in my mouth, my tounge was white and burning. I had to take Nystantin for it. It wipes out all you good and bad bacteria, so watch out this is a strong one.
Very mild left sided (could have fooled me with the "mild")  UC. Started LDN ON 1/25/09, stopped LDN on 5/1/09 didn't seem to help. Supplements: Probiotics, Cipro antibiotics 4/29 for 8 days seemed to help a little. Bad diarreah in the mornings about a hour of "dumping" no meds at this time for UC. I take Bentyl as needed, lomotil as well.

Yeah I threw up half the day and when I wasn't I was nauseas. I'm supposed to take this for another 5 days. It was quite interesting to have to run with my IV pole from the Remicade chair to throw up fro the flagyl induced heartburn and nausea!

Yeah, Flagyl is like taking insecticide-- yuck! It can give you a metallic taste that lasts until you get off it so be sure to keep drinking plenty of water. / Old Hat (30 yrs with left-sided UC ... [etc.])

shelliesv, by any chance while on flagyl did you have ceasar salad with wine? Apparently that combination can most definitely cause both nausea and vomitting (alcohol in general on flagyl can do that for many, but in essence while on any type of antibiotics drinking should be completely avoided).

My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it! LOL :)

I didn't have any food at all since last Friday! Yesterday during my Remicade they gave me a shot of phengram (sp?) to prevent nausea and I went and threw up 15 minutes later! I can't win!

Flagyl and Cipro make a number of people very sick. AS was said, NOTHING with alcohol-even mouthwash-and if the Phenergan didn't work, ask for Zofran. It is expensive but works well.
