Active ingredient

Metronidazole comes as 400mg tablets. The most commonly used treatment is to take one tablet twice per day for 7 days. Sometimes 5 of the 400mg tablets can be taken together as a single dose treatment.

The other ingredients in the tablets are:

  • colloidal anhydrous silica
  • maize starch
  • magnesium stearate
  • povidone

Common and serious side effects

Like all medications, there’s a risk of getting side effects when you take metronidazole. Below are some of the common side effects you might get:

  • feeling sick (nausea)
  • being sick (vomiting)
  • upset stomach
  • diarrhoea

Speak to a doctor if you notice any of these serious symptoms:

  • yellowing of the skin and eyes. This can be a sign of problems in the liver
  • unexpected infections, ulcers in the mouth, bruising easily, bleeding from the gums, or severe tiredness. These can be signs of problems with your blood
  • severe stomach pain, which can go all the way to your back. This can be a sign of inflammation of your pancreas (pancreatitis)

You should get medical attention right away if you think you may be having a allergic reaction to any of the ingredients contained in metronidazole tablets. The symptoms to look out for are:

  • swelling of the face, lips, tongue, or throat which can cause difficulty in breathing or swallowing
  • swelling of the hands, feet, or ankles
  • an itchy, lumpy rash (hives)
  • a stiff neck, headache, seeing or hearing things that other people are unaware of, confusion, and difficulty using your arms or legs. This can be a sign of inflammation in the brain (encephalopathy)
  • a serious skin rash which causes blistering, peeling, or bleeding around the lips, eyes, mouth, nose, or genitals. This can be a sign of a condition called Steven-Johnson Syndrome
