Hi,thanks for query.Metrogyl is a antibiotic used mainly for infections of G.I.tract.This will not be effective in absence of infection.Acidity and some gastric discomfort does not suggest infection ,it may not be effective.On the other side it can produce bad taste in your mouth and further add to your problem.Please talk to your doctor.bye.
