More information

  • Usage

    Metronidazole (Flagyl) is an antibacterial medication that is used to treat or prevent infections that are strongly suspected or proven to be caused by bacteria, especially microorganisms susceptible to metronidazole. More specifically, metronidazole is typically indicated for the treatment of some cases of trichomoniasis, amebiasis and anaerobic bacterial infections. Metronidazole has amebicidal and trichomonacidal against T. vaginalis and E. histolytica. Metronidazole is active against most obligate anaerobes and typically has a bactericidal effect when at or above the minimal inhibitory concentration. Flagyl (metronidazole) is often prescribed as either Flagyl 2 grams or Flagyl 250 mg three times per day for seven days for the treatment of female trichomoniasis.

  • Metronidazole – Side Effects

    Metronidazole (Flagyl) can cause side effects. Common side effects from metronidazole use include nausea, headache, anorexia, diarrhea, abdominal cramping and vomiting. People who have a known hypersensitivity or allergy to metronidazole (Flagyl) or other nitroimidazole derivatives should not use the medication. People with liver and kidney problems should not use metronidazole unless directed to by their doctor. Metronidazole (Flagyl) and alcohol should not be used together. Questions and concerns about adverse effects associated with metronidazole use should be discussed with one’s medical provider and pharmacist.

  • Cost Information

    Metronidazole can be considered a relatively affordable medication at under 70 cents per pill. Flagyl (metronidazole) coupons may be available online to reduce the cost and, depending on the patient’s insurance plan, some or all of the medication cost may be covered. Farmington Drugs & Medical Supplies takes pride in offering the most cost efficient services and prescriptions to our patients.

  • Dosage

    Flagyl tablets contain either metronidazole 250 mg or metronidazole 500 mg. After oral absorption, metronidazole achieves peak plasma concentrations within two hours. Metronidazole bioavailability does not differ between males and females. Metronidazole has an elimination half life of approximately 8 hours after both oral and intravenous administration. Most of the administered metronidazole and its metabolites are excreted in the urine. Flagyl tablets are blue in color and should generally be stored below 25° C.
