Does alcohol interact with Ornidazole?
No alcohol with these medicines
Welcome to Healthcaremagic.
Hi, I am Dr Anshul Varshney , I have read your query in detail , I understand your concern.
Alcohol should not be taken with anti ameobic medicines like Flagyl or Ornidazole. They can cause severe reaction known as "Disulfram Like Reaction". It is mostly seen with Metronidazole (Flagyl) but since Ornidazole belongs to the same class of drug, alcohol should be avoided.
Both Flagyl and Ornidazole are effective in curing Entamoeba histolytica infection.
As far as anal fissures are concerned, treatment depends on the severity.
Mostly local anesthetic gels like Lignocaine jelly helps a lot in controlling the pain.
Make sure you pass soft stools and you may take Lactulose Syrup in night for that purpose.
This is my personal opinion based on details available here. If you still have any other query, you may please ask me.
Dr Anshul Varshney , MD
Thank You for your feedback. I have a couple of more questions:
With the above Treatment and with Stool Softners (I am using Cremolax), how long should it take to get this completely healed?
Also, What kind of diet should I follow and what should I eat / avoid in this case?
Can you recommend any Painkiller that would be effective for Anal Fissures?
Detail explained below.
Entameoba treatment is usually given for 10-14 days and it gets cure in this time.
Anal fissures may take months to get normal as the fissure has developed and it would take time to heal.
I would not recommend any pain killers until and unless pain is severe. Diclofenac can be taken in that case.
You should continue creamalax for long so that the fissures don't get worsen due to constipation.
You should take soft and bland diet
Avoid spices and oily food. Take one papaya a day it is a very good laxative.
I hope it helps you.
Wish you a speedy recovery.
