2 doctors agree

In brief: Nausea

Most likely the Metronidazole is the culprit.
Try to take the medicine after eating something. Zofran (ondansetron) may help as well.

In brief: Prescriptions

Anti emetics like phenergan, (promethazine) and zofran need a prescription.
Okay to call your doc and make this request. If you are vomiting, get evaluated. If you are not vomiting and no fever, okay to try tea, broth, juices in small frequent amounts.
