Lori, you said on the last page:
"I finished my 7th pulse today but it is now changed from flagyl to Tindamax. What a difference this pulse was! I had very little reaction to Tindamax compared to how I felt after the past flagyl pulse. I had one day (4th out of 7) where I was more tired than usual. But not wiped out like flagyl does to me. Also no nausea like I experience before. And it doesn't taste yucky! If I tolerate this well the doctor wants me to go for 10 days, which I would do after the next pulse or two if things go well. The only thing that worries me is if Tindamax is actually doing anything. At least with flagyl I believed the "feel worse before you feel better" mantra applied. What would be awesome is if Tindamax works just as well without the side effects of flagyl!"
People do worry because it doesn't make you feel as yucky as metronidazole, but it worked fine for me. One thing, though, I swapped part way through one pulse and felt nothing at all for the remainder of that pulse. Next time it was better than metro but not quite so good, the next time the difference was even less. The lack of taste was worth the change, though.
Apart from that, aren't you doing well!
