I was on Metronidazole 250mg for 7 days.Today is my first 24hrs off of the medication, what is the reccomended time to wait before consuming alcohol?
Wait 4 days:
Metronidazole interferes with breakdown of alcohol in the body. References stress waiting *at least* three days after your last metronidazole dose. I would suggest waiting longer simply because the side effects of the interaction are so violent and miserable - they include nausea, vomiting, headaches, flushing, and stomach cramps. I suggest waiting four days to be on the safe side.

Discuss with with the clinic or doctor who diagnosed and treated your BV. Good luck! ...Read more
