Flagyl Drug Information

Flagyl® (metronidazole) is a drug used to treat infections caused by certain types of bacteria. It can help treat certain sexually transmitted infections, and is especially useful for treating infections caused by parasites and anaerobic bacteria (certain bacteria that do not require oxygen to survive).
 
This antibiotic works by entering the cell of the bacteria. The cells then cause a chemical reaction to occur with the medication. This reaction produces certain substances that can damage and destroy the bacteria.
 
Before beginning treatment with this drug, make sure your healthcare provider has information on your medical history. For example, you may not be able to take Flagyl if you have certain medical conditions, such as liver disease, epilepsy, or problems with alcohol. This antibiotic can also interact with various drugs, so make sure to tell your healthcare provider about anything you are taking, including vitamins and nonprescription medications.
