Vandazole Side Effects

What should I watch for?

Tell your doctor or health care professional if your symptoms do not start to get better in 2 or 3 days.

Avoid alcoholic drinks while you are taking this medicine and for three days afterwards. Alcohol may make you feel dizzy, sick, or flushed.

You may get drowsy or dizzy. Do not drive, use machinery, or do anything that needs mental alertness until you know how this medicine affects you. To reduce the risk of dizzy or fainting spells, do not sit or stand up quickly, especially if you are an older patient.

Your clothing may get soiled if you have a vaginal discharge. You can wear a sanitary napkin. Do not use tampons. Wear freshly washed cotton, not synthetic, panties.

Do not have sex until you have finished your treatment. Having sex can make the treatment less effective. Your sexual partner may also need treatment.
