Brief Answer:
Stop the medication, consult the doctor

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for your query.

Metrogyl is one of the best medication for loose stools. Considering your kidney condition I would suggest you to stop the medication and consult your treating doctor. Metrogyl can get accumulated in the kidney disease and side effects could be worse.

Using antibiotics inadvertently without any medical supervision in kidney disease is very dangerous.

Hope, I answered your query.

Wish you good health.
