I've had the other symptoms that everyone else has such as extreme nausea, abdominal cramps, metallic taste. But haven't seen any others with nipple pain... my boobs are very sore. I just finished my 7 day prescription last night and thought my side effects would of been gone today but I'm still very nauseous with the metallic taste and burning sore nipples.
Is burning painful nipples a side effect of metronidazole?

To add I don't drink alcohol so that isn't a factor. And I took the medicine as recommended with food and lots of water
Did you use alcohol with it? Using alcohol with metronidazole can cause serious side effects.
Even if you didn’t, nausea and abdominal pain and dysgeusia ( metallic taste) are common side effects that can happen with flagyl. I have never heard of nipple soarness before, but less than 1% of people sometimes experience breast enlargement.
