How do I prepare for my online Metronidazole prescription appointment?

To make the most out of your online appointment, ensure that you have noted down any questions you have and a detailed history of your current medical condition, symptoms and the drugs you are on. Moreover, do inform the doctor of any allergies that you may have.

The recommended dosage for women with bacterial vaginosis is 500mg of Metronidazole taken orally twice daily for 7 days. For other bacterial infections, a different regimen is followed. Follow the directions provided by your doctor to prevent any undesirable side effects.

What happens if Metronidazole doesn't work for BV?

A second course of treatment with the same medication may be used to treat BV, which does not go away after one therapy session. Another choice is to move from one medicine to another (for example, from metronidazole to clindamycin), as some concurrent organisms may respond better to a different drug.

Missing doses can reduce the effectiveness and may not cure your infection completely. Hence, if you miss a dose, take it as soon as possible, but if it is almost time to take your next dose, just take your next dose. Do not double the dose or take more than what is prescribed for you.
