Metronidazole dosing: There is a range of doses for metronidazole. Indeed, it is often given three times a day. I think your doctor adjusted your dose to 400 mg -probably based on your [thin] build. So your total dose for one day is 1, 200 mg. A common side effect is nausea, particularly if you take too much. If you have questions about your medication -you should definitely talk to the doctor that prescribed it. ...Read more
Metronidazole: Check out http://www. Drugs. Com/metronidazole.html where it states "Do not drink alcohol while you are taking metronidazole and for at least 3 days after you stop taking it."

How long do 4 metronidazole 500mg tablets stay in your system? In terms of days. Example, I take it today, Sunday. When is it safe to have alcohol?
A day or two: Actually, metronidazole doesn't usually react with alcohol at all. Most doctors have been taught that it does and tell patients to avoid alcohol because the combination can cause nausea an vomoting. But that advice is based on old, outdated research. It really isn't necessary. Alcohol in moderation for sure is safe 24 hours or more after taking metronidazole. ...Read more

Depends...: Data on cure rates vary (42-84%). The "pro" of the gel is that it's topical. The "con" of the gel is that it's topical. So, it's case-by-case.

Bacterial vaginosis?: Two good bets: Single dose metronidazole is only 90% effective against trichomonas, i.e. a 10% chance you still have it. Second, trich often is accompanied by bacterial vaginosis, an overgrowth of mostly normal vaginal bacteria. Both trich and BV cause discharge with strong (often fishy) odor. BV is treated with metronidazole 2x daily for a week and would cover both infections. Check with doctor. ...Read more
