Dear Hilda, Flagyl is also an anti protozonal treatment, not just an anti biotic. It is really strong and DO NOT DRINK alcohol on it or it will make you violently sick up. It treats amoebic dyssentery also. And certain other conditions. It is probably making you feel a little off, it can make you have a metallic taste and be pretty nauseous even without drinking, but, it is pretty effective as a medication. Watch out for yeast infections after this much anti biotic. Yes, you can use some of the monistat vaginal treatment during your course of antibiotics.
