Metronidazole

Metronidazole is an antibiotic that doctors prescribe to patients to treat skin and mouth infections. These cases may include infections in the gums, abscesses, and even rosacea.

In some cases, metronidazole will also be used to treat bacterial vaginosis and pelvic inflammatory disease.

Other uses of metronidazole involve the infection of sores, wounds, and insect bites. The antibiotic helps to treat and prevent the condition, halting bacteria from multiplying.

For patients to receive metronidazole, they must be prescribed it by their doctor, and you may receive it in multiple forms. Patients may receive metronidazole as a pill, gel, cream, or liquid for either oral or suppository use. Severe cases will require the antibiotic to be administered by injection, which will happen at a hospital.

When is metronidazole used?

Like all antibiotics, metronidazole is used to treat and prevent infections. Commonly the antibiotic is used for treating a disease called bacterial vaginosis. Bacterial vaginosis is a common condition caused by an overgrowth of bacteria.

It is also often used to treat stomach, liver, brain, skin, lungs, heart, blood, mouth, and more infections. Your doctor will prescribe this if you have been diagnosed with an eligible infection.

Metronidazole is also often used to treat certain sexually transmitted diseases, in which both partners must be prescribed the antibiotic. The partner is given the antibiotic even if there are no symptoms to prevent the infection from spreading.

How does metronidazole work?

When taken correctly, the metronidazole will help prevent bacteria from multiplying further. It does this by diffusing into the body and interacting with the bacteria. Once the antibiotic has diffused, it breaks down the DNA and kills susceptible organisms, making it harder for harmful bacteria to reproduce.

If the antibiotic is no longer being taken before the bacteria is gone, the infection will return as the harmful bacteria continue to spread and multiply.

If the metronidazole isn’t sufficient through oral consumption, it may need to be injected for more significant and potent effects.

What are the side effects of metronidazole?

The side effects you experience while taking metronidazole may vary depending on the form of treatment. Cream or gel may carry no side effects, while consumption through pills, liquids, or suppositories may show.

Here are some of the common side effects you can expect while taking metronidazole:

  • Constipation
  • Diarrhea
  • Dizziness
  • Headaches
  • Metallic taste in the mouth
  • Nausea
  • Upset stomach
  • Vomiting

While these are only mild side effects in most cases, note that if your symptoms are lingering or you are experiencing severe symptoms – you should seek immediate medical assistance.

You may also experience side effects that aren’t listed, so you should contact your doctor for further advice.

Frequently asked questions

  • No, you cannot purchase metronidazole from a retail pharmacy. This drug requires a prescription for use and purchase.

  • If you want a prescription for metronidazole, you need to be assessed and diagnosed by a board-certified doctor. Your doctor will discuss your symptoms with you and decide on your proper treatment.

  • Yes, you can get your metronidazole prescription online. If you contact a board-certified online doctor, you can discuss your medical history and current condition, and they can determine what kind of treatment you need.

  • To get an online prescription for metronidazole you will have to set up an account with us, download the DrHouse app and make an on-demand visit with one of our board-certified clinicians.

  • Metronidazole can be used in several ways. If you have been prescribed the antibiotic in cream or gel, apply it to the infected area as instructed.

    If given as a liquid or pill, you must follow the instruction of your doctor to be sure you don’t over or underdose.

    If your infection requires you to take your treatment vaginally or through a suppository, your doctor may have further information on how to use the treatment properly.

  • Taking metronidazole can cause complications when taken with other medicines. You should tell your doctor if you are currently or planning to take any of the following:

    • Ciclosporin
    • Disulfiram
    • Fluorouracil
    • Lithium
    • Phenytoin
    • Warfarin

    You should also steer clear of taking this drug if you are pregnant, have liver complications, or cannot stop drinking alcohol.

    Avoid stopping your treatment early. Even if the symptoms have cleared up, you should be sure to take the full course of antibiotics. Early treatment stops can allow harmful bacteria to multiply again, and the infection will return. Future antibiotics may be less effective.

They use their medical judgement to determine whether to prescribe and the duration. They will have the prescription sent to the pharmacy of your choice.
