Our expert says:
The other name is Flagyl and yes it is a terribly unpleasant but very effective antibiotic to take. If you have the 400 mg tablets, rather halve it and take 200 mg 3 times per day for a few days longer - the side effects will be less but it will still clear the infection. There is nothing you can replace it with unfortunately. It works for anaerobic organisms ( bacteria that live in absence of oxygen)
