Product Details
Side Effects

PLEASE NOTE: For Dental consultations, you need to supply your Doctor or Dentist’s details to enable us to supply this medication. WE WILL ONLY SUPPLY THIS MEDICATION TO PATIENTS WHO ARE ALLERGIC TO PENICILLIN BASED MEDICATIONS (E.G. AMOXICILLIN).

  • This medication will only be prescribed for patients who are allergic to Penicillin based medications (such as Amoxicillin).

  • Our Prescribers will only prescribe Metronidazole strictly on an emergency basis. It is intended as a one-off course of treatment for your infection or abscess on the understanding you book an appointment with a dentist for further inspection.

  • Our Prescribers will only permit one course of treatment within 12 months for the same area of the mouth. We reserve the right to immediately cancel and refund any repeat online consultations placed for Metronidazole in this timeframe.

  • Our Prescribers will NOT prescribe Metronidazole on a prophylaxis basis – i.e. for you to have ‘just in case’ of a future infection or abscess. We reserve the right to immediately cancel and refund any online consultations placed for Metronidazole on a prophylaxis basis.

  • It is vital that you book an appointment to see a dentist so the definitive cause of your symptoms can be identified and treated.

  • Antibiotics for dental problems are not meant to be taken on a long-term basis, as they fail to treat the cause of the problem and repeatedly taking them on a long-term basis also increases the risk of possible antibiotic resistance.
  • What is it used for?

    Metronidazole is a prescription drug which is used to treat bacterial infections. This prescription drug affects the bacteria's ability to spread, which will help reduce the discomfort and symptoms you may be encountering. Please note this drug it is not suitable if you have liver disease, a stomach or intestinal disorder like Crohn's, epilepsy or a nervous system disorder.

    Genital Infections - (Sexual partners should be treated concurrently)

    • Bacterial Vaginosis does not usually cause any vaginal soreness or itching, but it often causes unusual vaginal discharge. If you have the condition, your discharge may develop a strong fishy smell, particularly after sexual intercourse and may become a white or grey colour or thin and watery.

    • Trichomoniasis is a relatively common sexually transmitted infection found in both male and female. It is caused by a tiny parasite called Trichomonas vaginalis (TV). Many men or women won’t know they are affected, because trichomoniasis doesn’t always cause any symptoms.

    • For the above conditions as a general guide, 400mg needs to be taken twice daily for 5-7 days. Please read the manufacturers instructions for more detailed information. Metronidazole can be prescribed for both male and female.

    Dental Infections

    Gum disease is also called Gingivitis or Periodontal Disease. Metronidazole can be prescribed for both male and female. Gum disease is where the gums become swollen, sore or infected. The gums may bleed during tooth brushing and gum disease may cause bad breath.

  • For the above conditions as a general guide, 200mg needs to be taken three times daily for 7 days. Please read the manufacturer’s instructions for more detailed information. Metronidazole can be prescribed for both male and female.

  • Before Taking.

    DO NOT take this medicine before telling your doctor if:

    • you are, or might be pregnant or you are breast-feeding
    • you have experienced sensitivity to metronidazole, or any of the other ingredients in this medicine
    • you have liver disease

    It is very important that you tell your doctor if you are taking any other medication, particularly phenobarbitone (used for epilepsy and convulsions), anticoagulants such as warfarin (used to prevent blood clots), lithium (used to treat depressive illness); or any other medication you have obtained without a prescription.
