Patient :Hi, how long should I wait between starting a new line of treatment for parasites being treated with Mebendazole but now will be treated with metronidazole antibiotics? I have just finished taking my second dose of mebendazole or ovex and would like to start a new line of treatment with mebendazole antibiotics.
Thanks for your query, albeit catchy.
Noted that you have just finished taking your second dose of Mebendazole, and now will be treated with Metronidazole. Your symptoms are itchy and inflamed genitalia.
The drug interaction between these is very rarely noted in the literature, although not seen in practical experience.
Yet you can follow your Doctor's prescription.
Please tell me what is advised by your Doctor, the investigations if any done, and the symptoms/diseases that your are being treated for so that I can guide your further as the dosage for Mebendazole is from a single tablet to twice a day for 3 days. Which schedule is advised for you.
Also please let me know the reasons for Metronidazole.
Since you have just finished taking second dose of Mebendazole how many more dosages have been advised and when are you asked to start Metronidazole.
This is to avoid any confusion.
Awaiting for your feedback, so that I can assist you further.
