Hello, my name is Erin. I started this blog after having an adverse reaction to metronidazole in order to help other people who have suffered the same experience. I won’t pretend to have all the answers–any drug that acts as a neurotoxin on the brain is bound to have some unpredictable (and scary) side effects. But I wanted to share what I’ve uncovered through my own research, and I hope it helps you as you make your way towards recovery.
Aside from doing research on metronidazole, I’m an assistant and staff writer. I’ve written for several magazines in my home state, including two medical magazines, and also for Hormones Matter, which has documented my personal experiences with metronidazole toxicity. You can find my articles here:
