I was prescribed Klavox 1g twice a day to treat ear infection?

I was prescribed Klavox 1g twice a day to treat ear infection. After the second day of taking the ab, I started feeling discomfort in my stomach, gas, bloating and diarrhea. I consulted a Gastroenterologist who advised me to stop taking Klavox, and prescribed Flagyl 500ml three times a day. Now, the bowel movements are bearable, and I feel generally better. However, I am experiencing ear pain again. I don’t know what to do? Does that mean the ear infection is back in full force? I am so worried…

Hello. Flagyl is an antibiotic treatment that needs a certain time to work. It is recommended that the full course of treatment be completed before determining if it has been successful or not. If you still experience pain after the full treatment, you should consult again to obtain a new prescription. Regards
