Metronidazole over the counter

Common Questions and Answers about Metronidazole over the counter


Avatar n tn My Doctors just told me to take Monistat 3 or 5 over the counter instead of Diflucan. Just because it works faster. I didn't have any issues from it as far as I know. I've had a very difficult pregnancy too (like bleeding throughout, early contractions, etc.) & they still said it was safe for me. I hope this helps.
Avatar m tn For a mild case of diagnosed jock itch, using an over-the-counter antifungal cream could be sufficient. In addition, it is important to continue with washing and thoroughly drying affected areas, avoid sweating, wear well fitted underwear, and do not share personal items. 5) About two weeks. Check if you have fungal infection on your feet (Athlete’s foot) and treat it simultaneously to prevent reoccurrences. Yours in Optimal Health, Dr.
Avatar f tn My doctor doesn't know about this as i went to a walk in clinic. I then developed what i thought was thrush so got over the counter meds x 2 and it improved alot but is still very itchy. I went to my doctor and explained that i had an itch and that thrush treatment hadn't worked so he prescribed metronidazole for BV as he didn't know about the sexual contact... Again, it's much better but is still quite itchy and i have been taking the metronidazole for 5 of the 7 days....
1308690 tn?1273700011 Seems like you covered all the medical and over the counter prescriptions. I had a nasty case of BV and the Dr gave me Macrobid and it cleared it up. Thats by prescrirtion only . As for the yeast infection they have a pill called Flagyl its extermely potent and will kill the yeast infection. The monostat in my opinion don't help too much. Also my Dr told me its not recommended to have sex during BV and yeast infection .
Avatar m tn Will the Norritate cream help with the enlarged pores and irritation on my forehead, or is there some other treatment--whether over-the-counter or prescription--which I should consider? Is there any chance that this could resolve itself on its own, simply by washing with the right soap and otherwise leaving it alone? Thanks for any insight you can provide.
Avatar f tn Over the counter would be best
Avatar m tn You are also going to be bending over forward in the shower. The shower is not a good place to find out that bending over makes you dizzy. Practice it first before you get in a shower, no matter how young and fit and healthy you assume that you are. Stand in front of a bed or couch or a carpeted floor. Slowly bend forward as far as you can comfortably bend, and look between your legs at the crotch. Slowly stand up erect.
Avatar m tn Hi! If you were my patient, I would advise you that the metronidazole is a medication that treats bacterial vaginosis. I would advise you to finish this prescription first and then take the terconazole afterwards. Antibiotics CAN make yeast worse. Antibiotics are necessary, though to clear up BV. Taking your antifungal AFTER your antibiotic helps to counter act the side effect of the antibiotic. Good luck!
Avatar m tn I am not sure what infection you are being treated with metronidazole, but there are no over-the-counter antibiotic alternatives. It is very important for you to consult your OBGYN and/or primary care providers before taking any medication, including over-the-counter and herbal/vitamin supplements, especially when you are pregnant. I understand metronidazole is a big tablet to swallow and does not taste good when crushed.
Avatar n tn I didn't notice the bubbles. Anyways, a few days after my antibiotics and my period was over, I noticed the bubbles,and the pain around my tear..I also started feeling like poop again. Hopefully, things get figured out. Anyways, going to him with all the information is going to help! I want to get back to feeling normal! I can't even carry my baby around in her car seat due to not healing and hemorrhoids.Having these bubbles with everything else that is going on, *****!
Avatar m tn The dose for a large lab would be 500 to 750mg twice per day tor 7 days (Do not overdose). If you have not given the correct dose or metronidazole than another course of metronidazole may help. There could be gastrointestinal parasites not covered by the metronidazole, of course, and it would be best to have your dog's stool checked.
Avatar m tn If C. Difficile is suspected your physician may prescribe an antibiotic called metronidazole. Over the counter probiotics may help replenish the good bacteria in the lower GI tract preventing diarrhea due to antibiotic use.
Avatar f tn But yes, you can buy over the counter monistat for a yeast infection.
Avatar f tn or maybe it's due to the fact that i have been taking these antibiotics right after another for so many days upon completing the Augmentin (it will be 17 days total of being on antibiotics). my question is should i buy over the counter vaginal yeast infection medicine while still on the antibiotics?
Avatar n tn Is is over the counter stuff ? Most OB's will tell you it's ok to use it.. Your cervix is closed, and your baby is in a proteective sac. Your OB would probably have prescribed something similar anyway. It's ok.
Avatar n tn Hello, From your symptoms there is a possibility that this is due to bacterial vaginosis. Diagnosis can be confirmed after pelvic examination and microscopic examination of the vaginal discharge. Treatment is by metronidazole((Flagyl, MetroGel) and clindamycin (Cleocin) which are available under prescription. They are available as pills or vaginal gels or creams. Please do not use any vaginal douches.
Avatar m tn I suggest you to get all these possibilities evaluated from your dermatologist. Till that time,try an over-the-counter (OTC) cream or ointment containing hydrocortisone but it is to be applied sparingly to the affected area. A protective ointment that contains zinc oxide (Desitin, Balmex) also may help. If your symptoms are worse at night, please take an antihistamine like Benadryl to reduce itching until topical treatments take effect. I hope it helps . Take care and regards.
Avatar n tn I've experience bV for years and the best thing that works for me is using a mild soap(hypoallergelic), the water works natural douche and the vh essential product (vh preferably the douch concentration & the bv inserts all over-the-counter products.
Avatar f tn Today I noticed I have vaginal infection. Can the expired cream cause the infection? What should I do now with the infection ? What anti-biotic can I use to stop the infection? Thank you very much for your time.
Avatar m tn Hello, Bacterial vaginosis is the most common cause of abnormal vaginal odor and discharge. It is caused by a change in the type of bacteria found in the vagina. The exact cause for the change in type of bacteria is still not known, but it is can be due to IUD’s,multiple sex partners or having intercourse with a new partner. In addition to unpleasant "fishy" vaginal odor, thin white or yellowish discharge from vagina may also be present.
Avatar m tn I think that I may have a bacterial or yeast infection. I took 2 over the counter vaginial screening kits and i also i feel a bit discomfort and my discharge is maybe a pale white..sort of watery and thick..It stated I had a bacterial infection. I believe I had it for some time now but never went to the doctor..but im planning on going soon as possible. I Just want to know what can I do to help with the discomfort or even to clear up in the meantime? I dont really smell anything..
Avatar f tn if its nerve damage its best to see a doc again and bring this up with him as a possibility.
Avatar f tn Ask your pharmacist about metronidazole, it seems to be preferable treatment in pregnancy.
Avatar f tn Is there some kind of over the counter stuff i could use or a home remedy? i cant see the doctor until late next month.This really makes me self conscious about having sex now.
Avatar n tn I visited the doctor about 4 days after the symptoms started and she confirmed that it's yeast. I completed the Monistat 3 over the counter treatment, and the infection seemed to be clearing up after the second night. However, one day passed after finishing the product and the symptoms have begun again. Only, this time the discharge has a foul smell to it. Is it common for Monistat or any over the counter treatments to not work and make symptoms worse?
Avatar f tn So Tuesday I went to another gyn who guaranteed it's a yeast infection, he gave me Diflucan and prescribed monistat 3 which I had to get over the counter. I took the pill yesterday and began using the monistat treatment. Here I am at work itching so much and dont' know what to do. I cut my nails but still woke up with blood in them, I must have scratched all night. I've tried the monistat anti itch cream which doesn't help much, instead it burns. I wash with baby soap. Any suggestions?
Avatar n tn Although obviously at work it is difficult, i find that inhaling with herbal oils (put a few drops in hot water, place a towel over your head over the bowl,) baths, massage and cutting wheat out of my diet helps immensely to sooth these symptoms. Hope this was some help to you.
Avatar n tn Some medicines or medical conditions may interact with this medicine. INFORM YOUR DOCTOR OR PHARMACIST of all prescription and over-the-counter medicine that you are taking. DO NOT TAKE THIS MEDICINE if you are also taking efavirenz or macrolide antibiotics.
Avatar f tn Over the counter treatments are allowed while prego
Avatar f tn I got it after I use over the counter meds. For a yeast infection the next week I went to the doctor & they told me I had BV, it cleared up quick when I took the meds. But they are so gross. U almost don't want to take them.
