Buy Flagyl brand or generic Metronidazole prescription drug from Canada
Why is Flagyl prescribed?
Metronidazole (Flagyl) is prescribed alone or in combination with other medications for the treatment of parasitic and bacterial infection commonly found in the skin, liver, stomach, joints and respiratory tract that can cause endocarditis, vaginosis and pelvic inflammation.
What does it do?
Metronidazole, classified as a nitroimidazole, is an antibacterial and antiprotozoal agent that primarily works by inhibiting the synthesis of protein through interaction in the DNA that causes breakage of the structure and helix of DNA; thus, promoting cell death and reducing the growth of bacteria and parasite in the affected area.
How should I take it?
Flagyl and its generic equivalents are currently available in 200mg, 400mg and 500mg tablets. Each tablet should be taken as a whole (do not split) by mouth, with or without food.
The dosage strength depends on every patient’s condition and the doctor’s prescription. It is imperative that you do not self-medicate and only take this drug after consulting with your doctor or pharmacist to determine the best dosage and dosing schedule for the treatment of your condition.
What if I missed a dose?
The desired effects of prescribed medications will only be achieved if taken properly. As much as possible, strictly follow your doctor’s prescribed dosing schedule. However, if you miss a dose, take it immediately and adjust the time of your next dose depending on your doctor’s advice. Never take two doses at the same time just to make up for your missed dose.
What are the special precautions before using Flagyl?
Before taking Metronidazole, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you have any allergies to food or to the drug itself as it may contain several inactive ingredients, which can cause allergic reactions or problems.
Inform your doctor about your past and current medical history, especially if you have or have had liver disease, kidney disease, low blood cell count, Cockayne syndrome, nerve disorder, anemia, fungal infection and Crohn’s disease.
Avoid drinking alcohol as this may cause dizziness or drowsiness which can add to the effects of Metronidazole.
