Brief answer.....side effects like dizziness after taking SECNIDAZOLE are transient in nature
Detailed answer.....
Thanks for the query.
I have read your query and understand your concern.
I will answer your querries one by one.
Side effects like gastric discomfort or dizziness after taking secindazole are transient in nature and go off in couple of days.
As far as completing a course of medicines ( specifically antibiotics ) is concerned,it is very important to complete the course because of two reasons.
1st...infection tends to re occur and becomes more difficult to treat.
2nd...remaining surviving bacteria tend to develop greater resistance to the antibiotic and this aspect is bad not only for the individual but for the general population also.
I hope it helps,however you are most welcome to revert to me for any further query.
Best of luck

I am a female, 51 yrs of age, 5 ft. 4 in. and 150 lbs and live in Tanzania, Africa. Two months ago I had a stool sample brought to a lab and learned I had g.lambia, amoeba (e. histolytica) numerous, and p/cells - 12/hpv.

I was prescribed ofloxacin tablets 400 mg 2x5 tablets and took this bacteria drug for 10 days.

Also was given Secnidazole tablets 1000 mg. Entosec - 2 tablets. I read on the internet it is good to have stools checked again for g.lambia b/c even though feeling good there may still be parasites present. So.... I brought in a stool sample yesterday and was texted just now saying that it was basically ok, just have pus cells 4/HPV. Do you think I need to get meds again? I had 12 HPV initially and really don't want more meds if I don't need them. I am feeling fine and understand this is a intestinal infection and that it is normal to have some pus cells in the stools? Please give me advice as to whether I need to take meds. There is no more diaherrea and I was just getting this test done to make sure things are ok. I don't trust the Dr. in that clinic and won't be going to see him.
