Frequently Asked Questions for Metronidazole Tablet

What is BV tablet?

Metronidazole can be taken orally in the form of tablets or capsules, or it can be applied topically in the form of a gel or cream. The dosage and duration of treatment may vary depending on the severity of the infection, but it is typically prescribed for 7-10 days. It is important to follow the instructions provided by your healthcare provider and to complete the full course of treatment to ensure the infection is properly treated.

Can i take Metronidazole with my other medications?

It is important to check with your healthcare provider before taking metronidazole with other medications. Metronidazole can interact with certain drugs, including blood thinners, seizure medications, and some antidepressants, among others. Your healthcare provider will be able to determine if it is safe for you to take metronidazole with your other medications and adjust your treatment accordingly if necessary.

Can I drink alcohol with metronidazole tablet?

No, it is not recommended to drink alcohol while taking metronidazole. Drinking alcohol while taking metronidazole can cause a disulfiram-like reaction, which may include symptoms such as flushing, headache, nausea, vomiting, and abdominal cramps. This reaction occurs because metronidazole and alcohol can interact in the body and cause a buildup of acetaldehyde, a toxic substance that can cause these symptoms.

The reaction can occur even if you consume small amounts of alcohol, so it is best to avoid alcohol completely while taking metronidazole and for at least 24 hours after finishing the course of treatment. It is important to follow your healthcare provider's instructions and the medication label carefully to avoid any potential interactions and adverse effects.
