Effectiveness

How Solosec Affects PatientsSecnidazole is an antibiotic used to treat a variety of bacterial and protozoal infections. It works by targeting certain anaerobic bacteria and parasites, like Bacteroides fragilis, Trichomonas vaginalis, Entamoeba histolytica, and Giardia lamblia. Taking secnidazole may slightly increase the length of your heart's electrical cycle, but it is not considered to be harmful.
How Solosec works in the bodySecnidazole works by releasing reactive molecules when they enter a pathogen. These molecules damage the DNA of the pathogen, preventing it from reproducing and leading to its death. This type of drug is very effective against Gram positive bacteria, Gram negative bacteria, and _T. vaginalis_.

Solosec for Vaginosis caused by Bacteria
While the taste is certainly not great, it's manageable. I would recommend drinking it with a smoothie or something similar to help mask the flavor. So far, no side effects!

Solosec for Vaginosis caused by Bacteria
Even though this medication tasted terrible, it was worth it because my problem cleared up within a day. I've tried other medications like Flagyl and Clindeese, but neither of them worked. This is been ongoing for months and I think this medication finally did the trick. Hopefully it stays gone.

Solosec for Vaginosis caused by Bacteria
The taste was really tough to get over, but the medication itself is effective. I'm not sure if there are other options out there that might be more pleasant, but I'll definitely be asking my doctor about it.

Solosec for Vaginosis caused by Bacteria
I read the reviews before taking this, which was helpful. I learned that alcohol shouldn't be consumed while on this medication, so I haven't had a drink and won't for the duration of the treatment. The taste is bitter but tolerable; mixing it with non-dairy yogurt helps. On day two now and feeling fine--no side effects to speak of yet. Fingers crossed it works!

Solosec for Vaginosis caused by Bacteria
It was unpleasant, but it did the job it intended to. Unfortunately, it may have done too good of a job as I'm now quite dried out.

Solosec for Vaginosis caused by Bacteria
I was a first time user and sprinkled the medication on top of vanilla yogurt. The taste was bitter, but the yogurt helped. I then drank a glass of water; however, the taste lingered. That evening, I had one glass of wine and felt very sick afterwards (nauseous and dizzy). It's possible that my reaction is due to my small stature (5'2" and 108 lbs)? Or maybe because I don't drink often? Either way, I still don't feel great this morning--there's also been some discharge over 24 hours later.

Solosec for Vaginosis caused by Bacteria
The first time I took this medication, I made the mistake of mixing it with applesauce and ended up vomiting. It also has a terrible metallic taste. My doctor gave me two samples, but due to Covid-19, I didn't want to go to the office so I decided to try again. This time, I made a smoothie with a lot of fruits, spinach, yogurt almond milk and ginger to mask the taste. You have to mix it well and swallow it whole.

Mixing it in chocolate pudding makes it more palatable. I saw some improvement after the first day, but by Day 5 I was back at square one.

Do not take this medication if you plan on consuming alcohol. I had a very unpleasant experience of vomiting for five hours straight after only two glasses of wine.
