What Is Metronidazole Used For?

Metronidazole belongs to a class of medications known as nitroimidazole drugs. Metronidazole is an antibacterial medication that is used to treat or prevent infections that are strongly suspected or proven to be caused by bacteria, especially microorganisms susceptible to metronidazole. Metronidazole prescription medication also has antiprotozoal properties - similar to nitazoxanide (Alinia). More specifically, metronidazole is typically indicated for the treatment of some cases of bacterial vaginosis, trichomoniasis, amebiasis and anaerobic bacterial infections. Metronidazole has amebicidal and trichomonacidal against T. vaginalis and E. histolytica. Metronidazole is active against most obligate anaerobes and typically has a bactericidal effect when at or above the minimal inhibitory concentration. Metronidazole is often prescribed as either metronidazole two grams or metronidazole 250 mg three times per day for seven days for the treatment of trichomoniasis. Metronidazole is generally available in capsule, topical, tablet, and intravenous forms.

Most of the administered metronidazole and its metabolites are excreted in the urine. Metronidazole tablets are blue in color and should generally be stored below 25° C.
