After taking flagyl, will drinking lots of water flush drugs out of system?

My dad had 500mg of Flagyl by IV and after about 30 minutes lost all vision. He has a gfr of 12, how is this removed from the system?

Can flagyl and/or ciprofloxacin in combination with alcohol cause a higher breathalyzer reading and/or cause alcohol to remain in your system longer?

Can flagyl and/or ciprofloxacin in combination with alcohol cause a higher breathalyzer reading and/or cause alcohol to remain in your system longer?

Why do you ask?: Your doctor must have told you not to drink while you're taking flagyl. It's quite dangerous. And while you're on "Cipro", both alcohol and caffeine are best avoided. They won't actually raise the level. If you failed a breathalyzer, you need both a good lawyer and an eagerness to make sure that nothing like this ever happens again. Best wishes. ...Read more

How long does it take for 2000mg of flagyl to get out of your system? The side effects are me feel horrible. I have really bad heart burn dizzyandsic

Metronidazole dose: You took quite a large dose of metronidazole, so the side effects are magnified. Luckily the half-life of the drug is 8 hrs or so, so it should be clearing out of your system in a day or slightly longer... (in 8 hours, half of the drug will be gone, then in 16 hours half of that...so soon it will be gone). You should tell your doctor about it, so they know next time when trying to treat you. ...Read more
