In the UK, Metronidazole is available on prescription only. This means that you cannot purchase Metronidazole from a pharmacy without having a prescription from a doctor. If purchasing Metronidazole online, you will also require a prescription first. Luckily we provide this included in our service at Anytime Doctor. We never endorse purchasing Metronidazole from sources without a prescription.

Drinking alcohol whilst taking Metronidazole can cause very unpleasant and severe side effects, including a rapid heart rate, drop in blood pressure and liver damage. Unpleasant side effects include feeling or being sick and stomach pains.

It is recommended to avoid all alcohol whilst taking Metronidazole, and also for 48 hours after completing treatment. This is important as it can take 48 hours for the antibiotic to be cleared from your body.
