Day 3 of pulse 25 is well underway. Over the weekend, I had two days of taking the higher dose of Metronidazole and it continues today with 3 x 500mg, this time in pill form as opposed to the capsule form. I can now say from first hand experience, there is a major difference between taking the capsule form and taking the pill form. The pill form is NASTY. Horrid, horrid taste!
I've started attempting to toss the pill back in my mouth to my throat in hopes of missing my tongue entirely and washing the bugger down. Uggh!! I had it easy with the capsule form! Unfortunately, when my doc increased my dosage, he also increased the amount of pill prescribed so that I get a 4 month supply at a time. Now, all in pill form....yuck!
Needless to say, I'll be sure and ask for the capsule form when I next refill the prescription!
Now that I've whined about metronidazole and its horrid taste, I can also report a difference that I'm unsure whether is due to the higher dose or what exactly. My visible symptoms have been sorely invisible up until recently. With the higher dose, I noticed my urine is much darker then before, quite noticeably darker. This should be a good thing and I hope that it is.
I am a bit more tired lately then I usually am. I don't know if it's from lack of sleeping enough lately, or from the higher dose of Flagyl, or both. Probably the latter. I will endeavor to get more sleep as I really need it.
The heat lately has been troublesome. Heat still affects me negatively. I wonder whether that will ever change. I hope so. When I was a kid, I ran around all summer in heat, no problem. I want to be able to again. So, onward towards that.
Before this pulse, I had been thinking about pulsing INH with Flagyl. No thank you, this is enough. I think until the Flagyl has little impact, I will keep things simple.
