Hello this is Dr. Salama MD,

Numbness is a potential side effect of the flagyl.

Please stop taking it immediately and ask your doctor to switch you to the flagyl gel which is equally effective at treating bacterial vaginosis.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

If not, please don't forget to leave a positive rating (bonus appreciated) as that's the only way I get credit for answering your question.

Thank you!

I stopped taking flagyl last Thursday. When will the numbness go away. Could it be nerve damage?
Expert:  Michael Salama replied 9 months ago.

This is known as peripheral neuropathy.

I see that you requested a phone call which I would be happy to do but it said payment for this service failed.

Customer: replied 9 months ago.

I've sent updated it twice.
My bank acct had been charged twice. Once for $5 and another for $29
Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Who I contact to get refund since I was only supposed to be charged $5. And it now won't let me do a phone call and charged me another $29?
