Today has been my second day taking the drug. I cant take pills so I crushed them up and mixed with applesauce. I couldnt even taste the pill. I am taking the pill after eating a good sized meal. The symptoms of BV are going away and no side effects yet. Will update on day 7.

After my first day, my BV symptoms were gone. So this is a very effective medication. I had dark urine, and the horrible taste of this pill makes it difficult to swallow since it just dissolved the moment it touched my tongue.

Didn't always take it with food, and never had any issues with nausea. The bitter taste of the pill is pretty bad, but completely worth dealing with. PLEASE do not drink any type of alcohol while ...
