Both Doxycycline and Flagyl has Vomiting,Nausea,epigastric distress effect.you can ask and change another antibiotics .You can used Antacid for Flagyl but for doxycycline -it's effect will reduce.why you are taking medicine-Flagyl? Flagyl is specially used in Dental problem.There are better antibiotics and less side effect of nausea,vomiting .Consult your Physician

I had casual sex a month ago and a few days after felt the head of my penis burning as well as the part between testicles and anus (urethra?). Some days I felt a sensation like urine incontinency and sometimes i detect discharge which looks and feels very much like pre-semen, but I have found that that discharge is mostly after having sex or just an erection.

I consulted a general medician first and a uro-whatever doctor afterwards. The latter made tests for chlamydia (blood test), VIH, Sifilis, and another urine test (I already had one taken with the first sympthoms). Everything was negative/ok, just mucin was high both times. Now, the first doctor recommended a treatment of Ciprofloxacine with some red pills that made me pee orage color, both for a week. The second doctor gave me some 7 pills that were a mixture of Tinidazole (250 mg), Azitromicine (500 mg) and Fluconazole (37.5) and instructed me to buy 3 more for a total 5 days. Since I was not able to get that combined pill in local drugstore I bought last two separated and Metronidazole instead of Tinidazole. I finished the treatment. Pain has mainwhile relieved mostly, but I still see the discharge. Any suggestions?

Kindly suggest me what to do.
