Description of Metrogel

Metrogel belongs to the nitroimidazole class of antibiotics, and it has Metronidazole as its active ingredient. You can buy Metrogel in the form of an aqueous gel. Each gram of the gel contains 10mg Metronidazole, in addition to inactive ingredients including propylparaben, propylene glycol, phenoxyethanol, niacin amide, methylparaben, hydroxyethyl cellulose, edetate disodium, betadex and purified water.

Indications & Dosage of Metrogel

Metrogel is a topical application used for treating skin lesions caused due to rosacea. The medicine helps in decreasing swelling, redness and number of pimples caused due to rosacea, which is a type of adult acne. Being an antibiotic, it works by fighting the susceptible bacteria.

Your doctor will ask you to apply the gel once a day to the affected area. After applying the gel, you will be advised to rub it in so that it gets absorbed into your skin completely. Do not forget to clean the area with a gentle cleanser before applying the medicine.

Side Effects & Interactions of Metrogel

Some of the side effects that patients using Metrogel can commonly experience include mild stinging or burning at the site of application, tingling or numbness in feet or hands, stuffy nose, cold symptoms, throat soreness, cough, vaginal discharge or itching, dry, itchy or scaly skin, headache, metallic taste in mouth or nausea. These are common side effects of the drug and can be easily managed with or without medical help. However, inform your doctor at once if any of these persist or worsen.

Some hypersensitive patients may develop an allergic reaction to Metrogel. Symptoms of an allergy include facial swelling, severe dizziness, difficulty breathing and hives on any part of the body or on the entire body. Stop using the gel if you develop any of these symptoms. Seek medical attention if needed.

Do not use Metrogel along with a blood thinner such as warfarin. Also do not use any other topical applications, including herbal preparations, while using Metrogel unless it is approved by your doctor. Apart from these, inform your doctor about all the prescription and non-prescription drugs you are using at present, including diet supplements and herbal products. Based on this information, your doctor will be able to decide whether this drug is the right product for you or not, and what dosage should be prescribed to you.

Warnings & Precautions of Metrogel

Your doctor will not recommend you to buy Metrogel if you have allergy to any of the ingredients of the medicine. Special tests and dosage adjustments will be needed if you have decreased white blood cell count or a blood cell disorder like anemia.

Metrogel is for topical use only, and should not be ingested orally. Avoid getting the medicine into your eyes, nose or vagina. If this happens, wash the area thoroughly with running water. If irritation, burning or stinging persists, contact your doctor immediately.

Some forms of Metrogel may contain sunscreen. In those cases, you may not need to apply a sunscreen before going out. You can also use cosmetics after applying Metrogel, as no reaction is known to take place.
