I suffer from bacterial vaginosis. I was prescribed the 7-day regimen of Flagyl. Today is the 4th day of treatment. I feel good. I was warned by my doctor about alcohol and side effects. After the second pill I took, I got the abdominal pain and minimal diarrhea. I expected it to continue like this, but so far I feel healthy and awake. All medications have side effects and my experience with Flagyl has been positive so far.
