I had a bacterial infection. My doctor prescribed me to take metronidazole twice a day for seven days. During this he said that I could not have any alcohol whether it be in gum or mouth wash etc. Well my dentist prescribed me this special kind of toothpaste for brushing my teeth that has a low percentage of alcohol in it. So I haven't used my prescribed toothpaste while on this medication. I took my last one tonight, may 18th 2015. I also chew gum regularly that also had a low precentage of alcoho, that i havent chewed while on this. When can I get back to my regular routine?
How long after last dose of metronidazole?

Hi, 48 hours after your last dose, you will be safe to get back to normal and start using the toothpaste
