Flagyl for Bacterial Vaginosis

If you have bacterial vaginosis (a certain type of bacterial infection of the vagina), your healthcare provider may prescribe Flagyl® (metronidazole). However, only the long-acting tablet form (Flagyl ER) is approved for this use.
 
As an antibiotic, Flagyl works by entering the cells 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 cells of the bacteria.
 
Flagyl is only approved for treating bacterial vaginosis in adults.
