FLAGYL 375 capsules are indicated in the treatment of asymptomatic T. vaginalis infection in females when the organism is associated with endocervicitis, cervicitis, or cervical erosion. Since there is evidence that presence of the trichomonad can interfere with accurate assessment of abnormal cytological smears, additional smears should be performed after eradication of the parasite.

Flagyl (metronidazole) is an antibiotic. It fights bacteria in your body.

Flagyl is used to treat bacterial infections of the vagina, stomach, skin, joints, and respiratory tract. This medication will not treat a vaginal yeast infection.

Take Flagyl for the full prescribed length of time. Your symptoms may improve before the infection is completely cleared. This is due to the initial pharmacokinetic effect of the drug which decreases the first hand symptoms produced by the ailment. Skipping doses may also increase your risk of further infection that is resistant to antibiotics. Flagyl will not treat a viral infection such as the common cold or flu. Do not drink alcohol while you are taking Flagyl and for at least 3 days after you stop taking it. The effect of the alcohol may reduce the desired effect of the drug which can cause for the bacteria to multiply.  You may have unpleasant side effects such as fast heartbeats, warmth or redness under your skin, tingly feeling, nausea, and vomiting during the course of medication.flagyl-250-500
