Were you looking for information about Metronidazole? Metronadazole is a common misspelling of metronidazole.
The prescription antibiotic metronidazole (Flagyl®, MetroCream®, MetroGel®, MetroGel-Vaginal®, MetroLotion®, Noritate®, Vandazole®) is approved for treating certain types of bacterial and parasitic infections, including some sexually transmitted infections. It is believed to work by entering a bacteria or parasite cell and causing a chemical reaction that produces free radicals. Some metronidazole products are taken orally, while others are used topically. As with all antibiotics, it is important to avoid missing doses, as bacterial resistance may develop.
