I am on metronidazole 1500mg daily for replacing good bacteria after taking sulpha drugs back in Feb... hate this med... dread taking it every time... had some bad side effects... but getting better... be so happy to finish this med...
Am I correct in assuming you got diarrhea after taking sulpha drugs? If you had C diff from the sulpha drugs, I would hope you are ok now. Metronidazole doesn't replace bacteria, it is an antibiotic used for C diff among other things. How long did the dr tell you you would be on it? If you want to replace the bacteria, active culture yogurt will help, and there are several probiotics that help with that.
