Is there another dosage instead of 4 pills (2000mg) @ once of metronidazole for trichomoniasis?

Unfortunately from what I read and understand Flagyl (Metronidazole) is the best treatment for it. Both partners should be treated even if the other has no symptoms in order to kill it completely. Sorry 4 pills it is. Wish I could help more.

Ive taken this med before & its pretty harsh. It was 2x a day for 7 days. I dont even think I made it the whole 7 days! Im dreading this! thanx anyways!

Yeah, you can take 1 pill per day but make sure you get a follow up and make sure the trich is gone after treatment. This medication gives you a metallic taste and makes most people horrible nauseous. You may also be able to use the metro gel, which is strictly for vagina use and may not give you the horrible nausea or taste. My first ob/gyn gave me 8 of these pills and told me to take all 8 at once. Either way you take it, you may have a yeast infection after treatment. You must get your partner treated as well for the trich, trich is actually a protozoan and is communicable.

omg... How did you feel taking 8 pills @ once? So the 4 pills I have ..I can take 1 per day & it should be gone? Or should I take 2 pills one day & 2 the next? I do have the gel... is that good for the trich as well? I had the gel for the bacteria. Is it safe to do both gel & pills? Also is it safe to be on amoxicillin & take metro? The nurse said it was ok but I wanted to wait until I finished the one first. any suggestions?

Let's just say I didn't keep the 8 pills down for very long and felt horrible for a whole day. You can take 2 pills per day, my suggestion was for if it is making you sick on your stomach. I have heard of people taking flagyl ( the pills) and another antibiotic, if the doctor said to do that, and you aren't feeling too bad, you can do that. You may get a yeast since both medicines are so strong, make sure you have a check up to make sure the trich is gone. You can use both the pills and the gel at the same time.

Thanks for all your input. Im just going to wqit until I finish the amoxicillin first & then take metro 2x a day for 2 days! Hopefully everything will be cleared up! Also is it a good idea to eat plain yogurt while Im taking these meds?

Yeah very good idea

Thanx so much! Lets see if all works out! However I think Ive decided to take 1 pill a day for 4 days of the metro! Do you think that might be effective?
