Alcohol plus Flagyl is a potentially deadly combination. The combo can cause dire illness. The enzyme, aldehyde dehydrogenase, is inhibited which can cause violent illness. To my knowledge there is no other reason to avoid the combo. Please don't try it.
Flagyl won't help for a repetitive PID infection.
It means flagyl wont work for that infection
After a one dose treatment of Flagyl you should wait at least 48 hours before you consume alcohol. If you do not wait the recommended time, you could experience negative side effects because Flagyl interacts with alcohol.
Yes, men can take metronidazole (Flagyl). I have prescribed it myself to a few male patients depending on the particular infection.
Can I take cough drops with menthol in them and Flagyl - there is menthol in the cough drops. Menthol is perhaps alcohol? Flagyl and alcohol make you vomit badly.
I was just prescribed flagyl 500mg for an infection and I'm 14 wks pregnant. So I'm guessing yes.
yes as far as i know
yes but you shouldn't because it weakens the medicine.
Metronidazole is the chemical name for Flagyl. Drinking alcohol while on oral Flagyl can cause nausea, rapid heartbeat and vomiting.
Yes, flagyl is not related to penicillin. Your doctor or pharmacist should warn you not to consume any alcohol while taking flagyl, because a very serious reaction can occur if taking the two concurrently.
check for a bone infection
Metronidazole or Flagyl is used to treat the parasite that causes Trich.
Yes, that would be OK. Remember to take all of your Flagyl even after you start feeling better. You want to kill all the bacteria and not leave any hiding in your body! Also remember that Flagyl is the antibiotic which has a severe reaction with alcohol. Do not drink any alcohol while taking this, and check the ingredient labels of any liquids you put into your mouth or onto your skin. If it has alcohol as an ingredient, stay away from it.
This depends on what you mean by "drink alcohol" <g> The only antibiotic that you absolutely CANNOT have any alcohol whatever is Flagyl or metronidazole - even splashing alcohol on your skin while taking that drug will make you vomit! It is generally not a good idea to drink lots of alcohol when your body is trying to heal from any infection. Alcohol slows everything down in your body and brain, and drinking more than maybe ONE drink the whole time you are on the antibiotic could make the infection last longer. The actual medication does not have any interaction with the alcohol like metronidazole does, though.
NO. You shouldn't skip a dose of any medicine, but Flagyl is given for very serious infections and you need to keep on schedule. Besides, Flagyl can be given rectally if taking it orally doesn't work, which it won't if you skip doses. Also, what's to keep you from skipping a dose often so you can have a drink. Some medicines can damage your liver if you stop taking them to drink alcohol. Take your meds until you're finished and then MAYBE you can have a drink.
You should not drink alcohol while taking antibiotics for bacterial vaginosis without checking with your pharmacist first. If you drink alcohol while taking metronidazole (Flagyl) you could experience severe nausea and vomiting. There are no problems with alcohol and yeast medication.
No; perhaps you have another infection that Metronidazole does not treat
Metronidazole (an antibiotic) is the active ingredient in Flagyl.
Flagyl will only cure trichomoniasis.
For a simple case of strep throat, Flagyl would not be the treatment of choice. Consult with your physician to be sure. A throat culture may be required, in order to determine the specific type of throat infection, as well as the best antibiotic to treat with.
Flagyl does not affect the contraceptive implant.
You should take it with food, for the whole treatment. You should do the complete treatment. You should avoid alcohol (very important!) for the whole treatment (and 2 days after) - so you will avoid the "disulfuram side effect" that is a strong Flagyl side effect.
It is never a good idea to drink alcohol while on any medications as it usually affects the treatment.
