What is Metronidazole?

Metronidazole is an antibiotic that is prescribed to treat a number of bacterial infections, including bacterial vaginosis (gardnerella vaginalis) and trichomonas vaginalis. Metronidazole affects the bacteria's ability to spread, which will help reduce the discomfort and symptoms associated with these conditions within days of starting the treatment. If taken exactly as prescribed, Metronidazole can completely cure the infection.

Metronidazole is available to order online from HealthExpress after completing our completely free and confidential online consultation form. The form will ask you to answer questions about your current health and medical history, and will be checked by one of our registered doctors. If you are approved for this medication, you will be able to select this medication from a selection recommended for your condition.

What are the benefits?

Metronidazole, if used correctly, can completely cure bacterial vaginosis and trichomonas vaginalis. The sooner these conditions are treated, the less effect they will have on your overall health. Most people respond very well to Metronidazole and only a short course is needed to clear the infection.

How does it work?

Metronidazole kills off bacteria by entering each individual protozoa cell and interfering with the cell DNA. This action prevents the bacteria from duplicating, so that it can't spread and begins to die. This will help your body to cope better with the bacteria and complement the antibiotic actions to completely remove it from your system.

Who can take Metronidazole?

Most healthy men and women over the age of 18 can order Metronidazole online to treat bacterial vaginosis and trichomonas vaginalis. You may not be able to take Metronidazole if you have liver disease, a stomach or intestinal disease such as Crohn's disease, blood cell disorders such as anaemia or leucopoenia, epilepsy or nerve disorders. It is not recommended that you take Metronidazole if you are allergic to the ingredients, or if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.

Metronidazole can sometimes affect or be affected by other medications. Make sure that you mention in your consultation if you are taking lithium, medicines for the treatment of epilepsy, medicines to stop blood clotting, disulfiram, ciclosporin, oral contraceptives such as ‘the Pill' or mini-pill, cimetidine or fluorouracil.

How do you take it?

The dosage you take of this antibiotic will depend on the condition. Metronidazole is a versatile medicine that can be taken in a low dosage over a 7 day period (take 1x 400mg tablet 3 times a day), or in a high one-off dose (take 5 x 400mg tablets).. If you find that you do develop side effects easily when taking medications or anti-biotic, taking lower dosages over a longer period might be more suitable. You should preferably take Metronidazole after or during meals and it is not advised that you drink any alcohol for the entire duration of your course, and for at least 48 hours afterwards. To make sure that you are completely free of the infection, you are recommended to do another STI test 2 weeks after completing your treatment.

What are the side effects?

Metronidazole may cause side effects in those who are sensitive to the ingredients in this anti-biotic, but in general it is well tolerated. If you are experiencing side effects an adjustment in your dosage may be required. Some of the most common side effects are disturbances of the gut such as diarrhoea, constipation, nausea, vomiting or abdominal pain, unpleasant taste in the mouth, furry tongue sensation, loss of appetite, itchy rash, drowsiness, dizziness and headache.

Can you order Metronidazole online?

You can safely order Metronidazole online from HealthExpress after completing a short online consultation. After you've submitted your completed consultation, our doctors will review it and can approve Metronidazole for you to use, along with other medications for your condition. The doctor will then issue a valid prescription for the treatment and it will be filled by our registered pharmacy, who will ship it for delivery the next day, completely free of charge.
