I'm not sure about that particular antibiotic, hun but I do know that last winter, when I was SSing and got a chest infection, that two docs that I saw told me it was fine to take two different antibiotics (erm amoxycillin and erythromicin (sp??).

If you're worried, check it out with your GP or CD! Hope you feel better soon, babes!!

Right i have lived on these babies before - and heres the low down.

Flagyl (metronidazole) is an exceptionally strong antibiotic and there are loads of things you cannot do whilst taking it (alcohol is a NO NO)

And you also need regular bowel movements whilst taking Flagyl and you may not have this on a VLCD.

ALSO, because this med is for anaerobic bacterial infections (infections that grow without the presence of oxygen)...it can be incredibly hard on the stomach lining - cramps, loss of appetite, vomiting etc etc

Remember Flagyl may make you feel fierce sick, especially if you take it on an empty stomach

Overall, Flagyl is best taken with food (and hour actually after eating).

I aint a doctor tho' but i do like to read up on any medications that are out there...

New start and a new thread soemtimes does help and I have done this myself when I wanted to let the other go and move on.

The steps worked so well for me and that is why I recommend them and Sassy found the same.
