Hi so I was prescribed mentronidazole twice daily for 7 days for a BV infection and the nurse told me to take fluconazole the day after I finish my medication to prevent a yeast infection, the metronidazole clearly states to not drink with alcohol which I strictly did not and I was just wondering, today being the 8th day and taking the one dose of fluconazole 150mg when i can finally enjoy a beer again...
Metronidazole is an antibiotic that's used to treat certain types of bacterial and parasitic infections including BV.
Mixed with alcohol can result in unpleasant side effects such as fast heartbeats, warmth or redness under your skin, nausea, and vomiting .
It is best to avoid alcohol for 48 to 72 hours after finishing the metronidazole as this is roughly the time it takes for metronidazole to be cleared from the body of an average adult.
It's safe to drink while taking fluconazole.
