Yes. Yes it is.
Yes. This is a commonly prescribed medication for vaginal bacterial infections. It is safe to take in pregnancy.
Yes. Metronidazole gel is frequently prescribed for "bv, " or bacterial vaginosis. The trade name, flagyl, has been prescribed for BV to millions of pregnant women with no dangerous effects to the baby. More importantly, BV has been linked to preterm ruptured membranes and preterm labor, so treating this infection is crucial in preventing a very expensive and very dangerous pregnancy complication.
Yes. Actually Metronidazole is acceptable for use even in newborns with certain infections; therefore the use of Metronidazole vaginal gel--when used appropriately should pose no harm to your breastfed baby.
Perfectly safe. Metro-gel (metronidazole vaginal gel) is safe to use when breast feeding. We use it to treat bacterial vaginosis (bv) & simply use it as directed.
Minimal if anyu. If Metronidazole is absorbed into the circulation it is conceivable that alcohol intolerance may occur, but this would be unusual.
Maybe. .. Oral doses of Metronidazole can make some people feel sick if they later drink alcohol. It might be possible for a person to absorb enough of the topical Metronidazole to cause the same effect. Caveat emptor!
Question? I am not sure what you mean with this question...? If it is purely the vaginal gel and it is inside your vagina, that is fine and it will eventually go away over time, or if a large amount, it could be flushed out with a douche. If it the tubing and not just the gel, then you need to see the GYN and get it removed by the Doctor if you can not get it out. Best wishes.
When a male is using metronidazole 0.75 vaginal gel how often should it be used, for how many days, and up to where half of the area or all?
Confused. Why is a male using vaginal gel??? if he has an infection he should see a doctor.
Off label. Metrogel VAGINAL is made for women so for a man to use it is an off lable use and there are no specific directions for use by a man. For a woman, 1 applicator is placed in the vagina once a day for 5 days. I don't know how or why a man would use it.
Yes. Metrogel is one of the medications that I prescribe for bacterial vaginosis, also known as gardnerella.
Yes. Metrogel is one of the prescription medications used to treat bacterial vaginosis. If unsuccessful, a culture may help direct further treatment.
Hopefully. It often works but sometimes you can have bacteria that may be reisistant and u may need cloecin vag cream or metro gel u have to use 5 days Cleocin (clindamycin phosphate) only 3 days.
Flagyl OKwith menses. There is no reason not to use Flagyl (metronidazole) gel during your menses. It might be difficult to keep the gel in the vagina depending on the amount of blood flow and how many tampons you use but continue with your course of metronidazole gel during your menses.
