Today I went to the doctors and got prescribed a 1 time does of metronidazole, 200mg (4 pills 500mg each). I took them at about 2 1/2 hours ago.. tomorrow is my birthday and me and a few friends had plans to go out and get some drinks tonight.. I’ve taken amoxicillin ( lesser dosage) and drank afterwards and was fine. I drink regularly, probably like 3 or 4 nights a week I go out ( I’m in my early 20s!), so I know I can handle my alcohol. The doctor didn’t mention anything to me about drinking afterwards only asked if I drank in the past 3 days.. is it really unsafe?? How sick and for how long does it last? I’m not trying to sound like an alcoholic but I had this night planned for a few weeks and if I can’t have any drinks tonight that’'s not great. Has anyone had the same dose of metronidazole and drank that night and was fine? I don’t feel neausous or anything now. Just looking for experiences/opinions. Thanks!
