What is Metronidazole?

It is an antibiotic used to treat bacterial infections of the vagina, stomach, liver, skin, joints, brain, and respiratory tract. It is important to note that it will not treat a vaginal yeast infection. It will not treat a viral infection such as the common cold or flu.

How Metronidazole is Used

Metronidazole, which is marketed under the brand name Flagyll, Metrogel and Noritate, is an antibiotic and antiprotozoal medication. It is used either alone or with other antibiotics to treat pelvic inflammatory disease, endocarditis, and bacterial vaginosis. It is used to treat infections caused by a wide variety of bacteria known collectively as anaerobic bacteria. These bacteria don't need oxygen to grow and multiply and can cause infections in areas of the body such as the bones, gut, pelvic cavity and gums.

It is commonly prescribed to treat an infection called bacterial vaginosis. It is also prescribed before gynaecological surgery and surgery on the intestines to prevent infection from developing. It can safely be taken by people who are allergic to penicillin. It is also used, alongside other medicines, to get rid of Helicobacter pylori, a bacterial infection often associated with stomach ulcers.

Dosage

Metronidazole, also known as the branded version Flagyl, is an antibiotic used in the treatment of infections such as bacterial vaginosis (BV). The medication comes in the tablet form in either 200mg, 400mg or 500mg. You can find the 400mg tablets here at UK Meds.

Metronidazole is used to treat a wide variety of infections caused by certain types of germ (anaerobic bacteria) and types of micro-organisms called protozoa. These types of organisms often cause infections in areas of the body such as the gums, pelvic cavity and tummy (stomach or intestines) because they do not need oxygen to grow and multiply.

How to Use Metronidazole

Shake the oral suspension (liquid) well just before you measure a dose. Measure liquid medicine with the dosing syringe provided, or with a special dose-measuring spoon or medicine cup. If you do not have a dose-measuring device, ask your pharmacist for one.

Do not crush, chew, or break an extended-release tablet. Swallow it whole. If you are treating a vaginal infection, your sexual partner may also need to take metronidazole (even if no symptoms are present) or you could become reinfected. Metronidazole is usually given for up to 10 days in a row. You may need to repeat this dosage several weeks later.

Use Metronidazole for the full prescribed length of time. Your symptoms may improve before the infection is completely cleared. Skipping doses may also increase your risk of further infection that is resistant to antibiotics. It will not treat a viral infection such as the flu or a common cold. It can cause unusual results with certain medical tests. Tell any doctor who treats you that you are using this medicine.
