Metronidazole Dizziness Causes and Reviews


When you're dizzy, you may feel lightheaded, woozy, or disoriented. If you feel like you or the room are spinning, you have vertigo. These feelings may make you lose your balance.

Dizziness can have many different causes. A sudden drop in blood pressure or being dehydrated can make you dizzy. Many people feel lightheaded if they get up too quickly from sitting or lying down. Certain medicines and problems with your inner ear may cause Dizziness. So can motion sickness. Sometimes Dizziness can be a symptom of other disorders.

As people get older, they may have more health problems and take more medicines. This makes them more likely to have problems with Dizziness and balance.

Dizziness usually gets better by itself or is easily treated. If you are dizzy often, you should see your health care provider to find the cause.

Metronidazole Dizziness Reviews

Thu, 09 Feb 2012

Started four doses of 500 mg 3x/day, then shifted to iv metro in the hospital, then 2 more doses at home. I feel dizzy and lightheaded. It's been less than two days since i stopped it, i still have a bit of Dizziness and lightheadedness. I wonder how many days will this Dizziness persist?

Sun, 15 Feb 2009
I am deeply indebted to Danny Smith with his comments about Metronidazole. I was also prescribed Metronidazole for a tooth complaint and after experiencing Dizziness and being very unwell with nausea, happened to find his remarks on the net. After taking each tablet my symptoms increased and finally searched the net for some information. I immediately stopped my medication and alerted my Dr who has prescribed anti nausea pills and amoxycillin which have settled my symptoms and the infection has reduced in anticipation of root canals to be performed in a couple of days.
