Arising Nausea Accompanied By Palpitations After Consumption Of The Drug Metronidazole?
I (22 years old, not yet married) experienced vaginal discharge and was given a 500 mg metronidazole drug by SPOG doctor as much as 15. I have consumed 8 grains and have nausea accompanied by palpitations. I can’t go to the doctor anymore because of my work schedule. If my body causes a reaction like I mentioned above, do I still have to take this medicine despite nausea and palpitations?
Hello Deputri, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Nausea is indeed often caused by drugs that are included in the class of antibiotic drugs. Nausea itself is generally not dangerous and is included in the mild side effects, so that if this complaint arises, generally the drug can still be continued but is helped by changes in the way the drug is consumed after eating or together with mealtime.
For side effects such as palpitations, this drug is very rarely caused by this drug, so you should check with your doctor who previously gave the drug to consult further whether your medication can be continued or not because it requires a clear examination to decide whether oabt can be stopped or not and what medication should be given if the first drug is stopped.
In the meantime, keep taking the drug by taking it after eating or while eating, if the complaint is still felt or the complaint is getting more severe, stop using the drug and immediately check it back to the doctor who gave you the drug to determine your further therapy.
I hope this helps.
