Frequently Asked Questions

Flagyl and Alcohol

In response to a question by a list-member about drinking alcohol while taking Flagyl, another list-member dug this up on the internet:
Do not drink alcoholic beverages while taking Flagyl. The combination can cause abdominal cramps, nausea, vomiting, headaches, and flushing. It can also change the taste of the alcoholic beverage. When you have stopped taking Flagyl, wait at least 72 hours (3 days) before consuming any alcohol. Also avoid over-the-counter medications containing alcohol, such as certain cough and cold products.
