If you are taking Metronidazole i guess you are having an infection?
In fact yes this med can cause several side effects. Common adverse drug reactions associated with systemic metronidazole therapy include: nausea, diarrhea, and/or metallic taste in the mouth.
Mix that with anxiety and a panic attack and you have the situation you have just described .
Maybe, and i doubt it, you had an overdose but Metronidazole does not seem to be especially toxic in the case of an overdose. So i don't think it's something to worry about too much especially if the symptoms are gone now.
Metronidazole have a strong interaction with alcohol and can also have produced the vomiting.
Sparks of light again are assosieted with anxiety.
Anyway please note that i'm not a doctor and if you have any concern call you doctor.
I feel like ****, my heart keeps racing wildly and it feels like it is palping or double beating. I felt this all day off and on and it doesnt race when I am sitting only when I am walking
Havent had any booze, I don't drink.
this is what I have
Appetite loss; metallic taste; nausea; stomach upset and had vomiting
but my heart is beating very fast and I am getting scared!!!
doesnt say anything about that as a symptom so is it panic attacks???
Metallic taste and nausea are associated with Metronidazole even vomiting but i think it's a mix a both your reaction to the drug and panic attack. Fast heart beating is not associated with Metronidazole. One thing you must consider is you are maybe overeacting to Metronidazole so i suggest you talk to your doctor but i would say it's a panic attack and not an overdose even tho the vomiting is suspect.
Talk about this to your doctor please.
So the side effects should go away after two day????
it has been a day since I took it cause I took it monday night and it is past 6pm so that is the first day or second day??
and my rapid heart beat is panic attacks???
I cant die from this right??
OMG! so I could have or did overdose on this?!?!
both pharmacy AND er dr's said 4 pills ALL at once in a single dose. It says so one the bottle, doesnt say anything about 2 doses every 12 hours
says: Take 2000 MG (4 tablets) by mouth at once for a one time dose.
ugh......My boyfriend is fine however. =/ I wantd to take 2 one day and two the next day but he said no, it has to be taken all at once like what it says.
Should I go to the er???? what if I have an over dose!!!
I have an std called Trich
treatment of trichomoniasis, a single dose of 2,000 mg may be used after a meal. Various other doses exist according to the infection being treated.
I was listening to the dr and what he told me, take ALL the MG at once
He said not to devide it so did the pharmasist who I got the meds from.
I am shaking now and terrified!!!
