No need to wait: Even though common advice is that alcohol can cause nausea and vomiting when mixed with metronidazole, in fact it doesn't happen, or so rarely it can be ignored. See http://www. Mdedge. Com/internalmedicinenews/article/102639/infectious-diseases/metronidazole-and-alcohol

When after taking my last dose of metronidazole can I drink alcohol?

72 hours: My usual answer to that is 72 hours, just to be totally sure that the drug has cleared completely out of your system. I'd rather be safe than sorry with that one, knowing how sick it makes people!

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 you drink alcohol with flagyl?

No: If you drink any alcohol at all with Flagyl being taken simultaneously, then you will definitely get very sick and start vomiting! Or what we refer to as an Antabuse (disulfiram) reaction. This is a well known problem with flagyl. Not a pleasant experience at all. I would recommend completely avoiding all alcoholic drinks while taking flagyl. Period.

Can you drink alcohol with microbid and Flagyl

Yes but: If you have an infection your system is already stressed out, is best to not drink while taking. It is also rare but possible to have liver problem with this antibiotic, so again, better not to.
