When you have Trichomonas vaginalis, you can treat it with an antibiotic calles Metronidazole which is usually quite effective in treating the infection.

  • Diabetes
  • Porphyrias
  • Brain diseases
  • Spinal cord diseases
  • Pregnancy
  • Breastfeeding

Can I drink alcohol when I am taking Metronidazole?

You may not use Metronizadole in combination with alcohol. Even small amounts of alcohol will cause a reaction, often dizziness, headaches, sweating, red skin and other sympoms. Refrain from using alcohol for at least two days after you have finished taking Metronidazole to make sure all its contents have disappeared from the body.

Side effects of Metronizadole:

  • Gastrointestinal problems, like nausea and diarrhoea.
  • Unpleasant metally taste in the mouth
  • Loss of appetite
  • Discoloration of urine
  • Itching skin, rashes
  • Headaches
  • Pain in muscles
  • Dizziness, fainting

In rare cases angioedema might occur, this is a reaction to the drug and causes (severe) swelling of the mouth, lips, throat, tongue, eyes or entire face. Should this occur while using Metronidazole, immediately contact a physician or hospital and tell them you suspect an allergic reaction to Metronidazole.
