Flagyl (Metronidazole) Toxicity

I created this blog for one simple purpose—to help people who have had a serious, adverse reaction to Flagyl (aka, metronidazole), so they have a place to read about the condition and to answer questions that no medical professional was willing to help me find.  What you have has a name: Metronidazole-induced Central Nervous Toxicity (or metronidazole toxicity for short).

Would I know? This verse reminded me of similar lyrics …
