What is a generic medication?
Generic medications are significantly discounted copies of brand name medication that have the same active ingredients, intended use, dosage, side effects, effects, and route of administration as the original brand name medication. In other words, generic medications have the same pharmacological effects as their brand-name counterparts. Over half of all prescribed medications are for generic medications.

Metrogel Drug Information
Metronidazole is an antibiotic that is used to treat a wide variety of infections. It may also be used to prevent infection after bowel surgery. It works by stopping the growth of certain bacteria and parasites.
How to Use Metrogel
Metrogel is given by injection into a vein as directed by your doctor, usually 3 or 4 times a day. It is injected slowly into a vein over 1 hour. The Dosage of Metrogel is based on your medical condition and response to treatment. If you are using Metrogel at home, learn all preparation and usage instructions from your health care professional. Before using, check Metrogel visually for particles or discoloration. If either is present, do not use the liquid. Learn how to store and discard medical supplies safely. For the best effect, use this antibiotic at evenly spaced times. To help you remember, use Metrogel at the same time(s) every day. Continue to use Metrogel for the full time prescribed, even if symptoms disappear after a few days. Stopping the medication too early may result in a return of the infection. Tell your doctor if your condition lasts or gets worse.
Before using metronidazole, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to it; or to other antibiotics (such as tinidazole); or if you have any other allergies. Metrogel may contain inactive ingredients, which can cause allergic reactions or other problems. Talk to your pharmacist for more details. Before using Metrogel, tell your doctor or pharmacist your medical history,liver disease, kidney disease, certain blood disorders (low blood cell counts), swelling (edema). People with a rare genetic disorder (Cockayne syndrome) may be at risk for very serious liver disease if they use metronidazole. Discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor. If metronidazole is used, your doctor will check your liver function. Get medical help right away if you have any signs of liver disease during treatment (such as nausea/vomiting that doesn't stop, loss of appetite, severe stomach/abdominal pain, yellowing eyes/skin, dark urine). Avoid alcoholic beverages and products containing propylene glycol while taking Metrogel and for at least 3 days after finishing this medicine because severe stomach upset/cramps, nausea, vomiting, headache, and flushing may occur. Metrogel may make you dizzy. Alcohol or marijuana (cannabis) can make you more dizzy. Do not drive, use machinery, or do anything that needs alertness until you can do it safely. Talk to your doctor if you are using marijuana (cannabis). Metrogel contains sodium. Consult your doctor or pharmacist if you are on a salt-restricted diet or if you have a condition that could be worsened by an increase in salt intake (such as congestive heart failure, edema). Metronidazole may cause live bacterial vaccines (such as typhoid vaccine) to not work as well. Do not have any immunizations/vaccinations while using Metrogel unless your doctor tells you to. Before having surgery, tell your doctor or dentist about all the products you use (including prescription drugs, nonprescription drugs, and herbal products). During pregnancy, Metrogel should be used only when clearly needed. Discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor. Metrogel passes into breast milk. Discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor before breast-feeding.
For the best possible benefit, it is important to receive each scheduled dose of Metrogel as directed. If you miss a dose of Metrogel, contact your doctor or pharmacist right away to establish a new dosing schedule. Do not double the dose to catch up.

Make sure lab personnel and all your doctors know you use Metrogel.
