How do metronidazole tablets work?

Metronidazole tablets work by stopping the growth of the bacteria which is causing the infection and making you unwell.

There are certain factors that can affect how well metronidazole tablets work for getting rid of the infection.

To ensure the tablets are safe for you to take, you must let your doctor know if you:

  • have had a previous allergic reaction to metronidazole
  • feel you will be unable to stop drinking alcohol while taking metronidazole tablets
  • have liver problems
  • are having dialysis

If any of the above apply to you or have done in the past, you should speak to your doctor before taking this medicine. If you are pregnant, there is a small chance that bacterial vaginosis may cause complications with pregnancy. You must see your doctor first for advice. Metronidazole is generally safe to use when breastfeeding, but you should let your doctor know if you are breastfeeding so they can recommend the best dose.
