I am experiencing a bout of pouchitis. I don't get it often. May be once or twice a year, typically when I'm stressed & eating lots of junk (ie: the holidays). I believe it started mid November & I did start a round of Flagyl in early December. 500 MG 3 times a day. It makes me nauseous, gives me horrible cramps & I can barely tolerate the constant taste of metal in my mouth. Because of these side effects, although I know better, I cut my treatment short after probably only 5 days (I forget). I was supposewd to be on 3 pills (500 MG each) for 10 days. Low & behold, it's back w/ a vengeance & I know how important it is for me to adhere to the treatment but Flagyl is causing nausea, cramping & metal mouth again. I skipped a pill last night because I couldn't take it. I know 2 a day is another treatment option & one that I can tolerate much better than 3. My question for all of you is, what dose of Flagyl does your doc prescribe? 1000 MG a day, 1500 MG a day, ??
Thanks in advance for your replies,
