Information to have about Generic Flagyl 400 mg..
flagyl, metronidazole is an antibacterial drug prescribed for certain vaginal and urinary tract infections in men and women; amebic dysentery and liver abscess; and infections of the abdomen, skin, bones and joints, brain, lungs, and heart caused by certain bacteria.
flagyl is an antibiotic effective against anaerobic bacteria and certain parasites.
anaerobic bacteria are single-cell living organisms that thrive in low oxygen environments and can cause disease in the abdomen (bacterial peritonitis) liver (liver abscess), and pelvis (abscess of the ovaries and the fallopian tubes). giardia lamblia and ameba are parasites that can cause abdominal pain and chronic diarrhea in infected individuals.
flagyl selectively blocks some of the cell functions in these microorganisms, resulting in their demise.
flagyl works best when there is a constant amount in the blood. take
your flagyl doses at evenly spaced intervals, day and night, and try
to avoid missing any. if you are being treated for the sexually transmitted
genital infection called trichomoniasis, your doctor may want to treat your
partner at the same time, even if there are no symptoms. try to avoid sexual
intercourse until the infection is cured. if you do have sex, use a condom.
