More Info on Flagyl Indications

How Does Flagyl Work?

In order to work, Flagyl must enter the bacterial or parasite cell. The cells then cause a chemical reaction to occur with the medication. This reaction produces free radicals, molecules that can damage and destroy cells. This is presumably how Flagyl works to kill bacteria or parasites.

Flagyl Use in Children

Flagyl is approved to treat amebic infections in children. It is not approved for other uses in children.

Off-Label Flagyl Uses
