Metronidazole is known as a 'nitroimidaozle antibiotic' that is used to treat a number of bacterial infections, especially bacterial vaginosis (also known as gardnerella vaginalis) and trichomonas vaginalis.
By combating the production of the harmful bacteria that is causing the symptoms, Metronidazole works quickly helping to remove the infection with 2 to 3 days of use.
Metronidazole affects the bacteria's ability to spread, which firstly helps to reduce any discomfort the symptoms may be causing within a few days. The treatment permeates individual protozoa cells interfering with the cell DNA, this action prevents the bacteria from duplicating so that it cannot spread and begins to die. This will help your body's defences to cope better with the bacteria and complement the antibiotic actions to completely remove it from your system.
One course of Metronidazole 400mg can completely cure bacterial vaginosis (BV) and trichomonas vaginalis. The sooner these conditions are treated, the less effect they will have on your overall health. The vast majority of women respond very well to Metronidazole and only a short course is needed to clear the infection.
When looking to treat bacterial vaginosis (BV) Metronidazole should be taken in the following way:
It is also not advised to consume any alcohol for the entire duration of your course, and for at least 48 hours afterwards as drinking whilst using Metronidazole can induce unwanted side effects. To make sure that you are completely free of the infection, you are recommended to have a health checkup or take a test 2 weeks after completing your treatment.
At HealthExpress, we offer Metronidazole in a 400mg tablet dosage which is ideal dose that is recommended by doctors that has been proven to be well-tolerated.
Just take your missed tablet as soon as you remember and continue the treatment as normal.
If it is almost time to take your next tablet, miss it out completely and never take two tablets to make up for it. If you have, keep a watchful eye on your health and seek further medical attention if you are feeling unwell.
