Metronidazole: Breastfed babies get Metronidazole in doses less than used to treat infections in infants. Plasma levels of the drug and metabolite are measurable, but less than maternal plasma levels.

Is it safe to take 2 2g doses of metronidazole for BV in a 2 day period?

Metronidazole dosing: Luckily metronidazole is a relatively safe antibiotic. It doesn't quite make sense to me why you would be taking the large dose consecutively? Usually the 2 gram dose is a 'one time' thing to get rid of BV -bacterial vaginosis. After 1 or 2 days, that dose will have cleared out of the system. Not sure 'why' your doc would give u another round? Maybe you went to a different clinic? It should be OK. ...Read more
