Antibiotics Home > Metroniadazole

Were you looking for information about Metronidazole? Metroniadazole is a common misspelling of metronidazole.
Metronidazole (Flagyl®, MetroCream®, MetroGel®, MetroGel-Vaginal®, MetroLotion®, Noritate®, Vandazole®) is a medication used mainly for the treatment of infections caused by parasites and anaerobic bacteria. It is available by prescription only and comes in the form of oral and topical products. As with all antibiotics, it is important to finish your entire prescription (even if you start feeling better) to ensure that the infection is completely treated. Common side effects of metronidazole include headaches, nausea, and a metallic taste in the mouth.
