Metrocream Or Metrogel
Vote for metrogel: I believe the gel has the best penetration
YES: You can, but it might get a little messy.
Can I drink alcohol while using vaginal metronidazole metrogel? It isn't the oral pills so I was unsure.
No: Alcohol is a poison and it never did anybody any good, ever. If you are only 20 years old, it is illegal for you to drink alcohol. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine.See 2 more doctor answers
I was tested positive for my first bv and was given a 5 days treatment of metrogel. A few days after the treatment, I noticed a cottage cheese like discharge. Now I'm given a diflucan and 7 days metronidazole pills. Is dark urine the side effect?
Dark urine: Medications and various kinds of foods can change the color of urine. If there are other symptoms of UTI or it does not resolve then consult a physician,
Depends on what…: …ingredients are in olfen, as they vary from country to country. The primary ingredient diclofenac has no listed interactions with zinnat (cefuroxime) or with metronidazole. Remember to avoid alcohol while on Metronidazole (can cause severe nausea & vomiting) & be careful with sun exposure, for it is a photosensitizer. Discuss the ingredients of olfen with your fp.
No problem: Either of these could cause stomach upset. Maybe best to wait a few hours after azithromycin (Zithromax) before taking the metrondazole. But no problem if you take them together, if you're prepared to deal with some abdominal discomfort and perhaps nausea. It won't last more than a couple of hours.
Worried about med: Absolutely nothing. It's a very soothing medicine and won't affect the skin around your vagina.
