Many people believe that there is a potentially dangerous interaction between alcohol and metronidazole. Supposedly, consuming alcohol while using this drug may cause side effects such as nausea, headache, or flushing. However, recent clinical studies have failed to demonstrate a significant interaction. If you choose to drink while taking metronidazole, your healthcare provider may be interested in any possible problems (or lack thereof).
