No need to wait: Even though common advice is that alcohol can cause nausea and vomiting when mixed with metronidazole, in fact it doesn't happen, or so rarely it can be ignored. See http://www.mdedge.com/internalmedicinenews/article/102639/infectious-diseases/metronidazole-and-alcohol

Drinking on Flagyl: You should wait several days after your last pill. It you drink on Flagyl it is likely that you'll be nauseous and throw up.
