Flagyl

PATIENT INFORMATION

Alcoholic beverages should be avoided while taking Flagyl (metronidazole) and for at least one day afterward. See DRUG INTERACTIONS.

Patients should be counseled that antibacterial drugs including Flagyl (metronidazole) should only be used to treat bacterial infections. They do not treat viral infections (e.g., the common cold). When Flagyl (metronidazole) is prescribed to treat a bacterial infection, patients should be told that although it is common to feel better early in the course of therapy, the medication should be taken exactly as directed. Skipping doses or not completing the full course of therapy may (1) decrease the effectiveness of the immediate treatment and (2) increase the likelihood that bacteria will develop resistance and will not be treatable by Flagyl (metronidazole) or other antibacterial drugs in the future.
