Metronidazole Vaginal Gel and Drinking Alcohol

Prior to using metronidazole vaginal gel (MetroGel-Vaginal®) to treat bacterial vaginosis, it is important to talk to your doctor about all medications, vitamins, or herbal supplements you are taking. But what about drinking alcohol while using metronidazole vaginal gel?
It is usually recommended that people taking metronidazole products, such as metronidazole vaginal gel, not drink alcohol. However, this interaction is probably less likely to occur when metronidazole is applied vaginally, as it is with metronidazole vaginal gel. Because there is some uncertainty about the validity of this interaction, talk to your healthcare provider about your particular situation.
