Found out I'm about 4 wks pregnant & I was taking metronidazole 500 mg for Bv Is it safe to finish my dosage 2 pills for 7 days I'm on the 7th day?

Relax: It is too late to worry about it now since you have taken 6 days of it anyway. Although it is recommended to avoid in the first trimester, it is generally considered safe and no studies have established a solid link of it to any problems. We frequently prescribe the oral version to women in first trimester and I have not seen any problems in the last ten years of my practice. ...Read more

I've taken 3 400mg metronidazole tablets with four hours between each dose. Is this ok, I haven't had an accidental over dose? told to take 3 daily

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

If metronidazole 500 2x a day for BV doesn't work ,would increasing the dose work?

If metronidazole 500 2x a day for BV doesn't work ,would increasing the dose work?

Unlikely.: Metronidazole usually works well for routine bacterial vaginosis at that dose for 7 days. If you are not responding after a few days of treatment, you may need to be evaluated for another cause of your symptoms. If you initially get better and then your symptoms return, it could be due to reinfection from your partner. Condom use will help prevent this or consider having your partner treated. ...Read more
