I took a med called METRONIDAZOLE, 2000 MG to take all at once in ONE DOSE (4 tablets) to clear up Trich an STD well monday night at 6pm my boyfriend and I took our medications. it has been 4 days almost since I took it and I have questions on if these are panic attacks or something involving the meds after???
                                                                  DIDN'T DRINK BOOZE ONE BIT WHEN TAKING IT!!!!!
---------------------------------Ok these are what I am experianceing-------------------------------------------------
shortness of breath
racing heart
stars when i turn my eyes
tingling hands
feel somewhat out of myself
ears ringing
feel like i am dying
 Not hungry
------------------------------------Ok these were my metronidazole side effects-------------------------
metallic taste in mouth (not anymore)
dry mouth (not anymore)
upset stomach/vomited after 6 hours of taking the meds(not anymore and happened once)
had constipation
Kinda itchy but that can be panic attacks aswell cause I don't have rashes on me(only happens when i get paniced)
Had dark urine
headaches (again could be from lack of sleep and panic attacks)(Pressure like headaches)
Loss of hunger
I am not sure if this is the right place to post this or not but I did anyways......
I also have a few questions
1.) long does metronidazole stay in your system?
2.) severe effects would happen right away right?
3.) could i be allergic to the meds and not have known?
4.) Should I call the er and ask them aswell???
5.) do bad side effects happen after you take the meds?!
 6.) could I have overdosed???
I have been freaking about taking the pills and had a bad panic attack a second after taking them.
Now sense then I think I am dying and I think of all these problems THAT could be.
I wanted to call the er but my boyfriend said NO they are just panic attacks but Idk...I feel like crap!!!
If I cant call a dr. what should I do?????? what if something BAD is going to happen too me!!!!
I woke up feeling shaky, mind you I havent really eatin today either that could be it or could be from insomnia went to bed at 5am and woke up at 10am
-.- I feel like i am losing my dang MIND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
may just force my boyfriend to let me call and ask questions cause he seems fine, I feel like Poo still
 I felt twitchy inwardly like I was gonna have a seizer but it went away, yesterday it was shortness of breath and racinng heart, day before it was racing heart

Okay, so I don't know anything about the medication itself, and I am not a medical professional, so I can't give you any medical advice. Also, welcome to HealingWell and I hope that you find the answers that you are looking for.

It seems as if you have alot of anxiety and stress on you from your situation and since you had bad side effects to the medication it probably caused more anxiety. It sounds like you may have had a panic attack or two, but it also sounds like you may JUST be experiencing high anxiety.

I'm not for sure that you actually had a panic attack. Panic attacks generally last about 10 minutes and lots of times people are left in a state of general anxiety afterwards. The outer body feeling is most likely depersonalization, which people feel alot with high levels or anxiety. I have it myself.

If it were me in the situation I would try to last throughout the night and go to the doctor FIRST THING in the morning. Having a panic attack can make you feel like you are having a heart attack, or that you are losing your mind, or numerous things.

Bottoms line, having anxiety and panic attacks make you have a feeling of "impending doom". Like something bad is going to happen or that you are going through a near-death or near-psychotic experience.

I would say to try breathing exercises, and relaxation techniques and go to the doctor tomorrow. Also, however, if you have high fevers or other bad symptoms to the medication that doesn't seem to be just anxiety, the ER might be a good place to go.

Again, I'm not a professional and I hope that others give you some good advice as well.

Much love and God Bless.

Also, check out this link, it has the numerous symptoms that you can have with anxiety or panic attacks.

It's a website that I found from the resources page for anxiety and panic, and it is extremely helpful!

For treatment of trichomoniasis, a single dose of 2,000 mg may be used after a meal. If you took this medication on Monday, I would say your anxiety has kicked into high gear and you may need to talk with your physician re your anxiety. I agree with trying some relaxation techiniques.

Glad to read you are feeling better and do talk with your physician about having Xanax to use when you start to feel a panic attack beginning. Many members can nip their panic attacks in the bud by using Xanax.

I am glad you have found us and hope you continue to keep on posting.

Again, I am so glad you are feeling better.

Gentle Hugs,
