Metronidazole (also known as Flagyl) is an antibiotic hard capsule medication used to successfully treat a number of common infections including bacterial vaginosis (BV) and trichomonas vaginalis (trichomonaisis). Available in a 7-day course, these tablets can reduce the severity of the symptoms to cure the infection completely.
As the symptoms are easily recognisable, and bouts of bacterial vaginosis can occur more than once,you don't need a face-to-face consultation however in the UK, you need a prescription. Luckily, Metronidazole 400mg is easily available to buy online here after a free, quick consultation. One of our registered doctors' will ensure you are safe to use the treatment, and it will be packaged and sent off through our premium next day delivery service.

By combating the harmful bacteria that is causing the symptoms, Metronidazole is available in a course of tablets (that should be fully completed) and works quickly by reducing the uncomfortable symptoms allowing your body to combat the infection.
At HealthExpress, we supply Metronidazole 400mg tablets in 21 tablet pill packs.
Metronidazole affects the bacteria's ability to spread, which will help reduce any discomfort the symptoms are causing within days of starting the treatment. By killing 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.
If taken exactly as prescribed, this treatment can completely cure the infection.
One course of Metronidazole can completely cure bacterial vaginosis and trichomonas vaginalis. The sooner these conditions are treated, the less effect they will have on your overall health. The vast majority of people respond very well to Metronidazole and only a short course is needed to clear the infection.
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). At the moment we do not provide the vaginal gel alternative. If you find that you do develop side effects easily when taking medications or antibiotics, 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 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 do another STI test 2 weeks after completing your treatment.
Just take your missed pill 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.
At HealthExpress, we offer Metronidazole in a 400mg tablet dosage, there is also a vaginal gel (0.75%) but this is not available here. This is ideal dose that is recommended by doctors that has been proven to be well-tolerated. However it is available in 200mg if you happen to be prone to side effects, and an 800mg that is only suggested if the level of your condition is particularly severe.
Whilst even the side effects classed as "common" still only affect 10% of users, it is still essential that you familiarise yourself and take precautions if you are particularly sensitive to any of the ingredients.
Some of the most common side effects are:
Fortunately, these are not common and if they do occur, should lessen as the body becomes used to the treatment. If you do find any symptoms becoming worse, please ensure you speak to your doctor as soon as possible.
