Were you looking for information about Metronidazole? Metronidozole is a common misspelling of metronidazole.
Metronidazole (Flagyl®, MetroCream®, MetroGel®, MetroGel-Vaginal®, MetroLotion®, Noritate®, Vandazole®) is a medication prescribed for the treatment of certain infections. In particular, it is often used for treating parasitic infections and infections caused by anaerobic bacteria (bacteria that do not require oxygen to survive). As an antibiotic, metronidazole works to fight infections by entering the bacteria or parasite cell and causing a chemical reaction that produces free radicals. Common side effects include nausea, headaches, and a metallic taste in the mouth.
