Started Flagyl for c diff. Does throat. Contains t Doctor?

I started Flagyl 500 mg p.o. 3x/day for C Diff on 10/ 2 after being hospitalized and receiving 5 doses of IV Flagyl. My drug information states I should call my Dr. immediately for a sore throat, which I began experiencing a couple hours ago, about 2.5 hours after my most recent dose of Flagyl. How urgent is it for me to contact my Dr.?

Hi friend..
Thanks for query to HCM forum,

I read your query and it seems sore throat is allergic reaction to Flagyl 500mg usage .
Stop drug first and I advice you to Call your Doctor immediately so as to get advice from your doctor regarding reducing dosage of drug or change of drug if necessary.

Hope this information is helpful.
Take care..
