I drank 8 beers last night and my last beer was at 3 am. Now is 11am in the morning so it had been 8 hours passed. Is it ok for me to start my metronidazole 500 mg pills now? Thank
Hi and welcome to HCM
Thanks for the query.
You should wait for 12 hours to pass if you had so much beers. so take it in 2-3 hours. Effects of alcohol cant be very serious but it may cause less efficiency of antibiotic so it is not recommendable to drink during...
Using a tampon and metronidazole are two different things. Metronidazole is an antibiotic while tampons are protective mechanisms. They can and should be used in conjunction.
I hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day !

Metronidazole is an antibiotic and it should be given for a course as prescribed by the doctor without missing doses in between.
If you miss the dose, the effect of the antibiotic on the organism will decrease and there will be delay in clinical...
I will advise you to continue with metronidazole and take pre and probiotic capsules. Meanwhile keep your hydration level well by taking lots of fluids. if symptoms are not relieved then stop metronidazole and start oral...
A walk in clinic doctor said I had bacteria vaginitis and put me in metronidazole 250mg twice a day. I was experiencing tingling in my lower legs and left arm. So the doc advise me to stop taking then. There were 8 pills left out of 28. I'm now getting brownish-red blood for 10 days now ( spotting) I have to change a pad a least twice a day. Is that a side affect to metronidazole or is it a chance I had a miscarriage cause my pregnancy results came back negative. I took two home pregnancy tests and one at the doctors.
I'm worried. And need to know if the results would become positive later?
Or is the bleeding just a side affect from metronidazole?
well one of the most common side effects of metronidazole is dark yellow discolouration of body fluids like urine and even sweat along with metallic taste in mouth. whether your spotting is simply that it can only be told after you will complete the metronidazole cycle and it...
Thanks for your query.
If you are planning a baby , stop metronidazole at once as the effects on a fetus are not known to be safe. If you stop it , there will be no harms.
I have a cellulitis infection on my shin. It flared up 5 or 6 weeks after falling off my bike and badly bashed 2x9 inches of my shin. There was no broken skin and i had managed to stop a huge hematoma forming by icing almost immediately. As soon as i noticed the heat spot and that my leg tended to swell when walking i went to a walk in clinic at my local cottage hospital and a nurse was confident it was a shin splint and told me to ice it on a rota.
4 days later it became very red in a small area. The very next day i sought help at an nhs hospital walk in GP centre.
Clarithromycin slow release was used 2daily for about a 3days with the infection still spreading slowly. The dose was then upped to 3 daily and non slow release but with a small improvement in efficacy. I have now been prescribed metronidazole as well and the infection is very very slowly going.
welcome to HCM!
