Hi,

SERIOUS SIDE EFFECTS include seizures and damage of nerves resulting in numbness and tingling of extremities (peripheral neuropathy). Metronidazole should be stopped if these symptoms appear.
AND CONTACT YOUR DOCTOR ASAP

SIDE EFFECTS: Metronidazole is a valuable antibiotic and is generally well tolerated with appropriate use. Minor side effects include nausea, headaches, loss of appetite, a metallic taste, and rarely a rash. Serious side effects of metronidazole are rare.

You may report side effects to FDA at 1-800-FDA-1088.
