Can I drink alcohol while using vaginal metronidazole metrogel? It isn't the oral pills so I was unsure.

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.

Can olfen be taken alongside zinnat 500mg and metronidazole 200mg?

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.

Is taking 2g of a Zithromax and 500mg metronidazole okay?

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.
