Drug Interactions

Oral metronidazole has been reported to potentiate the anticoagulant effect of coumarin and warfarin, resulting in a prolongation of prothrombin time. Drug interactions should be kept in mind when METROGEL is prescribed for patients who are receiving anticoagulant treatment, although they are less likely to occur with topical metronidazole administration because of low absorption.

Use In Specific Populations

8.1 Pregnancy Teratogenic Effects: Pregnancy Category B. There are no adequate and well-controlled studies with the use of METROGEL in pregnant women. Metronidazole crosses the placental barrier and enters the fetal circulation rapidly. No fetotoxicity was observed after oral administration of metronidazole in rats or mice at 200 and 20 times, respectively, the expected clinical dose. However, oral metronidazole has shown carcinogenic activity in rodents. Because animal reproduction studies are not always predictive of human response, METROGEL should be used during pregnancy only if clearly needed. 8.3 Nursing Mothers After oral administration, metronidazole is secreted in breast milk in concentrations similar to those found in the plasma. Even though blood levels taken after topical metronidazole application are significantly lower than those achieved after oral metronidazole a decision should be made whether to discontinue nursing or to discontinue the drug, taking into account the importance of the drug to the mother and the risk to the infant. 8.4 Pediatric Use Safety and effectiveness in pediatric patients have not been established. 8.5 Geriatric Use Sixty-six subjects aged 65 years and older were treated with metronidazole gel, 1% in the clinical study. No overall differences in safety or effectiveness were observed between these subjects and younger subjects, and other reported clinical experience has not identified differences in responses between the elderly and younger patients, but greater sensitivity of some older individuals cannot be ruled out.

SAVINGS OF 70%! "Hi! Just want to say thanks to this website for providing a card such as this to the public for free! A few weeks ago I printed out one of your cards and used it on one of my medications because my co-pay went up and to my surprise instead of paying a $45.00 co-pay through my insurance, I ended up paying only $17.00 by just running it through the discount card! Now I will be comparing prices!" Steve
SAVINGS OF 70%! "I went to a chain pharmacy today and wanted to fill a prescription and not run it through my insurance.They quoted me $164.00 for a 90 day generic supply, I asked them to double check and it was the best they could do. I came home, checked your online price, registered and had a card in 15 seconds. Went back, and the prescription was $16.92!"

I lost my insurance coverage and went online seeking help and found this CARD! It worked and saved me money $$$$$ very 1st time.
