Product Overview

Metronidazole (generic Metrogel)

  • What is metronidazole?
    Metronidazole (generic Metrogel) is an oral antibiotic used to treat bacterial infections of the heart, blood, nervous system, gastrointestinal (GI) tract, lungs, joints, bones, and skin. Extended-release metronidazole is commonly prescribed as a treatment for bacterial vaginosis and sexually transmitted bacterial infections such as trichomoniasis. If metronidazole is being used as a treatment for a sexually transmitted infection (like trichomoniasis), both sex partners should use the medication simultaneously. This helps reduce the risk of reinfection in either partner. Antibiotics stop the growth of harmful bacteria in the body, so simultaneous use of metronidazole will help prevent the infection from living on and being passed between partners.

    Talk to your doctor about whether metronidazole is right for you.

  • What are the most common side effects of metronidazole?
    Even though metronidazole may cause some side effects, it is important to remember that your doctor prescribed the antibiotic as a treatment for a bacterial infection. If left untreated, these infections can cause severe complications.

Common side effects include:

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Constipation
  • Headache
  • Irritability
  • Dry mouth
  • Dizziness

Talk to your doctor if any of these symptoms do not go away after a day or two.

Do not drink alcohol while using metronidazole. These substances may cause severe nausea, vomiting, and other complications. Do not drink alcohol until 3 days after discontinuing use of metronidazole.

Simply talk to a clinician and get your online doctor prescription or refill ordered right away for fast and convenient pickup from a pharmacy of your choice.

Note that all prescriptions are at the discretion of your healthcare provider.

Metronidazole is currently only available via prescription. This means the use of this drug must be authorized by a licensed healthcare provider.

If you're looking for a prescription, book a telehealth appointment to talk to a provider who can write a new prescription or refill an existing prescription. Depending on the medication, you can arrange for same-day pickup at a pharmacy near you.

Yes, Sesame makes it easier than ever to get a new prescription or refill an existing prescription online. To discuss a new online prescription or refill, book a video visit with a doctor or nurse on Sesame to discuss a new online prescription or refill.

Online prescription refills are up to the discretion of your provider. If you’re a new patient, most providers will write a prescription for 30 days and may want to schedule a follow-up appointment to ensure that the medication is effective. If you’re a returning patient, your provider may prescribe for a longer period of time.

Prescriptions and prescription refills on Sesame are exclusively cash-pay. We do not accept insurance for the provider appointment or the medication. If a clinician sends your prescription to your local pharmacy, you can pick it up and pay with a method of your choice, including your FSA or HSA card, prescription card, cash, credit, and more.

Most insurance plans do not require prior authorization for medication coverage. When you go to the pharmacy to pick up your prescription, the pharmacist can use the insurance information they have on file, or you can give them your insurance information for coverage.

Health insurance plans publish a formulary for the drugs covered by the plan and the corresponding drug and copay prices. Check with your insurance provider to find out what drugs require authorization and the specific coverage information regarding the medication you’ve been prescribed.

For patients who book a weight management service through Sesame’s online weight loss management program, providers can assist with prior insurance authorization requests for your medication. For more information, visit our video weight loss program page.

It is helpful to have proof of a prior prescription before your refill visit. Depending on the medication, some Sesame providers may require proof of a prior prescription before refilling it. Your provider may ask to see a picture of an old pill bottle or check for previous prescriptions from another Sesame provider. In some instances, your Sesame provider may also be able to access a national pharmacy system to see prescriptions from non-Sesame providers.
