What's the difference between Flagyl , and Flagyl er ? I am prescribed Flagyl , it's 500 mg per tablet and I am to take it twice a day for 7 days . The tablets I have say "Pliva 334" on them . I don't know whether I am taking Flagyl or Flagyl er (the extedned edition) is there any way to tell which I am taking ? Do Flagyl er tablets have the words "Flagyl er" on them ? I would like to know which one it is I have because Flagyl you can take with meals , but Flagyl er you can't take with meals , you have to take on an empty stomach . I have been taking mine with a meal as I was instructed, and am assming it's Flagyl and not Flagyl er . Thanks ! Answered by Woodrow Norley 11 months ago.
Blah blah blah... Lol ER only means its coated with a clear material so it can go to your stomch and dissolve while non ER would dissolve right away even if its not in the stomach. Reason why tey said take it with food is becuase it's not coated. If it was coated and ou took food it would take LONGER to dissolve(u less the pill is acidic when you swallow it in the intestine, like aspirin is acidic to our stomach) you can tell which I is whic by just feeling it. ER pills have a smooth rich to it Which non ER has a Powderly like feel and stain on your fingers You choose which one it is lol Answered by Chanda Palmrose 11 months ago.

Does everyone feel like this on Flagyl ER?
Ok, so I couldnt make it for a few more days! I stopped taking it yesterday morning after excrutiating pain for almost a week. The doctor said i should be good since I only had 3 pills left but will test to see if the parasite is really gone in a feel weeks. All I know is that I will NEVER take this again. Thanks...

So im taking Flagyl ER for a stomach parasite I came down with a few weeks ago. I started taking it 3 days ago and am about halfway done. I have never been so thirsty in my life entire life. There is a horrible dry taste in my mouth. If I dont keep my stomach constantly full I feel nauseous. Not to mention I have abdominal cramps. The indigestion keeps me up at night. 3 more days left, does everyone feel like this? Is there something I can do or do I just have to survive. Answered by Tory Chlebus 11 months ago.
Thanks to all who responded! Its 730 am here and im already stuffing food down my mouth just so i dont feel sicker. Im partially inclined to sleep with crackers by my bedside! Its good to know that other ppl have went through this and im not just having a reaction to this medicine. I will be sure to take all of your advice and be thankful that I only have to deal with this for another few days. Answered by Nelda Robbs 11 months ago.

Well to start with, you need to finish it especially if its only 3 days left and its for a parasite. Flagyl's side effects are LARGELY gastrointestinal and in most patients nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain or cramps are nearly expected. As for the mouth symptoms, you should call the doctor who prescribed you them to make sure it is not the beginnings of an overgrowth of candida, which can happen secondary to the stronger antibiotics such as metronidazole. Good luck Answered by Sheryll Talat 11 months ago.
Nasty nasty drug, with horrible side effects. Unfortunately, you have to finish the medicine. I wish Docs would prescribe prednisone or a shot of depomedrol with Flagyl..... to just mask some of the symptoms. I have had to take it numerous times through my life and it is always unpleasant. I would eat something every 2 hours or so. Drink LOTS of water. Suck on hard candy, sugar free if necessary. Take a big swig of Maalox before bed AND sleep with 2-3 pillows under your upper body. It will help the indigestion. These things will help.... just have to gut it out. Sorry..... Answered by Regina Luttman 11 months ago.
Oh my gosh, when I was on it It had me sicker than I ever been. Just be sure to keep yourself hydrated, I couldn't and went for hospital stays twice. It messed my stomach up bad! Hang in there and take the next 3 days. If you still have symptoms after this dose. Be sure to ask them to put you on another prescription, they did for me.God bless you & best of luck!!

I took the same medicine for 20 days. everyday i would have the taste of pennies in my mouth, extreme dry mouth, felt the need to puke and i felt like food sat up in my throat after i ate. but i did feel better as i ate,lol. when i told my dr about it, he said it was very important that i finished out my medicine. i would say i know how your feeling just try to stick it out a few more days. =/ Answered by Ellie Barto 11 months ago.

Can you crush the medicine flagyl er?
can it be crushed ?........................................
Asked by Courtney Bok 11 months ago.
No. It's an extended release drug, and crushing it will alter the time release mechanism. If you really can't swallow pills, you can ask your doctor for regular Flagyl (that can be crushed, but you'll have to take it more often) or an oral suspension (liquid).

How many hours a day should I space Cefalexin 500mg (3 times a day) and Flagyl 250mg (2 times a day)?
Asked by Joslyn Olafson 11 months ago.
Ideally you should space the cephalexin out every 8 hours, and the metronidazole every 12. But its not so important you should alter your sleep schedule. Take both in the morning when you wake up, the cephalexin in the afternoon, and both again at night. Take them with food if you feel stomach upset after taking them (unless you are on Flagyl ER, it should say ER or "extended-release" on the bottle - those should be taken on an empty stomach Answered by Marty Gabri 11 months ago.
Im 6 weeks,is Flagyl safe?
Btw I did check with the doctor and they said the same thing,"Go Ahead and take it"
Asked by Verla Devoto 11 months ago.
I went to the ER and he prescribed me Flagyl and Keflex. When I got them filled the paperwork for Flagyl says do not take the first 3 months of pregnancy. Did any of you take it this early? Would he really prescribe me something dangerous? Also, please don't tell me just to call my OB I don't have one yet due to really sucky insurance. Answered by Sang Arbon 11 months ago.
Keflex is fine to take you should call you're OBGYN back and tell her you are not comfortable with taking flagyl and would like something else. EDIT: you need to take an antibiotic for an infection, especially if you have a vaginal infection. call and ask.. if she insists on you taking it after telling her about the pamphlet you got from the pharmacist, then i really would go ahead and take it.

My sis in law was rushed to the ER complaining of severe abdominal pain. She was given the following medicine
s: BUCOPAN, DALACIN C, FLAGYL FORTE, ELDICET. What could be her condition? She was advised by the ER doc that if she feels the pain again and cannot bear it anymore, she should see her personal doctor.
Asked by Sherlyn Rendon 11 months ago.
Flagyl and Dalacin are antibiotics - they treat infections by killing bacteria. They are frequently used to treat abdominal infections, including abcesses. Buscopan (note the spelling) and Eldicet (also called Dicetel) are antispasmodics used to calm painful intestinal spasms and cramps. So they are both treating an intestinal infection, and treating painful spams that might be caused by the infection. Could be that they found a high white blood cell count, which would indicate that an infection was present (white blood cells are produced to fight bacteria). Could be they detected actual and specific bacteria through a culture or some other tests. Could be they didn't find definite proof of an infection, but they are including the antibiotics just in case there is an infectious cause for the pain. Answered by Joette Guffanti 11 months ago.
Both are used to treat infection. Here's what a medical book I have, written by a doctor, said: "Flagyl"- For bateria infections (paraphrased). "Dalacin C"- "Infections of the lower respiratory tract, abdominal cavity, genital tract in women, blood stream, (septicema), skin and related tissues caused by susceptible organisms, specific prevention and treatment for pneumocystis carinii pneumonia (PCP) associated with aids, possibly effective for the local treatment of acne." I couldn't find "Bucopan." I'm not a doctor, and I'm not "skipping out" regarding what it COULD BE. I believe the definitions I've provided make it explanatory. Answered by Scot Townes 11 months ago.

dont think those are american meds, but i think flagyl is an antibiotic and eldicet is prob a pain med. They think she has an intraabdominal infection of some sort, if shes a younger gal possibly PID. Answered by Shayne Fahlstedt 11 months ago.

I'm assuming it's the regular Flagyl , as the nurse told me not to take it on an empty stomach . I just want to make sure it's okay if I eat food and take it and is still effective taken that way . I was prescribed 500 mg twice a day for 7 days , is that Flagyl , or the extended "Flagyl er" ? Thank you ! Answered by Louise Marren 11 months ago.
