Reviews for Tinidazole

Anonymous November 11, 2009

Tindamax (tinidazole): “I was diagnosed with Trichomoniasis in early September after having awful symptoms. I had a foul discharge, pain when urinating, pain during intercourse, slight bleeding during intercourse and didn't know what was wrong. Since this was my first time having this I was very scared. My doctor told me it is easily treated and it's a common STD so while I was still upset it did put my mind at ease a little. I took 4 pills of 500mg in one dose and abstained for a little over a week and it got rid of all the symptoms. I must admit it worked well and I had no side effects.”

Tindamax (tinidazole): “Tinidazole worked within a few hours of taking it no side affects just a miracle cure. bearing in mind I have already taken 2g of metronidazole 2 weeks ago (no side affects with this either I think I must have the constitution of an ox) and the symptoms cleared a little after a week but returned. I reckon although this was more expensive it was worth it. Please don't be scared to take these meds. Don't read too much into reviews, I did and scared myself. Everyone will have different experiences. But I am just thankful we have these cures.”

“I was diagnosed with Trichomoniasis last October, started using metronidazole and it wouldn't work..fast forward to May when the CDC had to take over my case to find out I contacted a very rare form of antibiotic resistant Trichomoniasis. They prescribed what they call a huge dose of tinidazole, so 2 pills 3x a day for 2 weeks. I am now on my 3rd day and absolutely miserable. I can't sleep, barely can eat, feel like I'm about to have a stroke but I have no choice if I want to get rid of this. My insurance did not cover this and the cost was $1075.00 dollars just for the generic, brand name almost 3K”

“I took this Med (tinidazole) yesterday. I was diagnosed with trichomoniasis. My dose 2g for 1 day. I took 2 tablets at 11:30 and 2 tablet at 4:30 pm with full meal and a glass of almond milk no side effects. The only side effect is I can’t sleep ... but I still have discharge in the morning .. is it normal ?”

“My husband cheated on me and I got this awful smell went to the Dr and almost fainted when I found out I had Trich and bacterial vaginitis but I took these pills. I am allergic to flagyl and so I was scared because I’m allergic to most antibiotics but the pharmacist told me to eat and then 30 min before I take the four pills to take a Benadryl so I did that. Now I no longer have a smell and left my husband and so they told me to wait a month go get rechecked I will probably go back before then. I was so ashamed of myself like I’ve never had a smell and I was so ashamed of that but I don’t smell now so just waiting for this time to get rechecked. Needless to say I was tired and had a little upset stomach probably because I didn’t eat enough but I’m feeling better and back to my old self. This seems to be a lot better than the clindamycin gel that stuff took the smell away but in three days it was back I was like oh no. This medicine I heard works - we will see.”

“I took this med as a one time dose, 4 pills at once and I actually had 0 side effects the whole day. I ate a big meal with it. But I woke up this morning with a horrible metallic taste in my mouth and some nausea. But I have noticed the cloudy urine and odor has subsided. This is probably the only antibiotic that didn’t give me major side effects. Don’t let the reviews scare you!”

Tindamax (tinidazole): “I was diagnosed with trichomoniasis and where it came from I'm unsure of. I took the 4 white pills as soon as I got them. I didn't experience any major side effects other than feeling flushed (body temperature was rising) and dehydration. I knew the increase in body temp was an indication the medication was at work. I have not yet had a follow up with obgyn but as soon as I do (couple days from now) I will repost my personal results and will be able to better rate this drug. As for my partner who also took Tindamax, said he felt extremely itchy all over his body and very nauseous and complained of a chemical odor whenever he would urinate. He has yet to go get a follow up with his doctor as well.”

“I took tinidazole (4 pills at once = 2g) on March 16th 2021, I took it because I was diagnosed with Bacteria Vaginosis as well as Trichomoniasis, I also had yeast, (yes I know so much going on). I took monistat 3 a day to clear up the yeast. I took this as soon as I got done eating, so much stomach was nice and full. I felt fine after taking this medication the first day, the next day March 17, 2021, there were very mild symptoms, the symptoms were so mild that I still went about my day without being bothered. During that evening I had some diarrhea and nauseated and very little appetite. But it wasn't to the point of over bearing...my nausea wasn't that bad, it was mild. My appetite seems to be the only thing that really did something but I still ate. Oh and urine was dark and all I drink is water (but taking this med does give you dark urine) On March 18th symptoms are non existent, no smell no heavy discharge and side effect symptoms from medication are gone.”

“I have BV and Trich and kept this stuff in my pantry for almost a year (3 weeks before it expired) cause I was terrified of the reviews on this stuff. I felt fine, ate fine, the only problem was the awful taste in my mouth and trying to drink anything with this taste was awful. It wasn’t so bad if I ate a bite of something the chugged some water, but it’s safe to say I didn’t get in as much water as I should have. I realize the dosage for BV is double what I took. I took 1 gram at 11am and then the next 1 gram at 6 pm. I took the pills on Saturday and it’s now Monday and the taste in my mouth is gone, smell below is gone, still having some discharge but ITS CLEAR. Don’t be afraid of this medicine. I’m aware that everyone is different but I made sure to take this on a FULL stomach with a couple swings of milk to coat the stomach better.”

“I was prescribed two 500mg pills to get rid of trich. I went to the doctor at 1:30 & left about 3. Maybe an hour or 2 later I had horrible diarrhea! My cycle came on a couple days later & now the scent is back with a discharge. Did the diarrhea have an effect on the pill?”

“I was diagnosed with Trichomoniasis and my doctor prescribed me these 4 tinidazole pills at 500 mg. I just took them not too long ago my vagina was very irritated itchy, no smell but it was irritated. Now I'm going to wait the 7 to 10 days to see if everything will be back to normal and check up with my obgyn”
