Vandazole Gel

A healthcare provider may prescribe Vandazole® (metronidazole vaginal gel) to help kill certain bacteria in the vagina that have overgrown and caused a condition called bacterial vaginosis (BV). This product comes as a vaginal gel that is used once a day for five days.
Although most women tolerate this medicine well, side effects are possible and may include headaches, itching, and vaginal yeast infections. Fortunately, most reactions to this medication are minor and treated easily.
While it may be an effective treatment, not all women can use this vaginal gel. For instance, you may not be able to use Vandazole if you have certain allergies, if you are taking certain medications, or if you cannot stop consuming alcohol while using this drug.
