I have been prescribed metronidazole and nitrofurantoin to take together. I also take a benedril a day for allergies. It it safe to combine these?

In brief: Fine together

These medications are not known to not negatively interact, so taking them together should be fine.

In brief: Yes

Yep, those are fine to take together. Also, be sure not to drink any alcohol while on Metronidazole - it will make you sick.
