How do Metronidazole 400mg Tablets Work?

Bacterial vaginosis (BV) is a common condition caused by an imbalance in the natural bacteria found in the vagina. Normally, the vagina has a balance of various bacteria. In BV, there’s an overgrowth of certain bacteria, disrupting this balance. However, Metronidazole is an antibiotic that effectively targets and kills the bacteria causing an imbalance.

Metronidazole 400mg tablets are suitable for most adults. However, they should not be taken by individuals who:

Metronidazole Dosage

The typical initial dose of metronidazole to treat bacterial vaginosis in adults is 800mg, followed by 400mg every 8 hours. However, the exact dosage and duration of treatment depend on the type and severity of the infection. It’s essential to take metronidazole tablets as prescribed and complete the entire course of treatment.

It is great to have somewhere local that does blood testing. The staff are lovely, helpful and experienced. They fit me in last minute. There is never a wait and the results back within a day or two.
After refusal of doctors appointment same old same old ring back etc. I was invited at 5.25 to see doctor I drove over immediately. Everything fully explained and checked over I was leaving by 6pm with penicillin for strep throat. Had I followed my doctors receptionist I would probably have suffered longer and increased the chances of a worse infection.I Great efficient service.
