    ...."no alcohol with Metronidazole", does that mean "No, not even a
    glass of wine with your meal"?

    I had a bit of pain from a tooth, and my new dentist [1] thinks it's
    an infection in the gum/root, so I've got a 3 day course of

    [1] an *utterly* drop dead gorgeous polish woman. Somehow, looking up
    into her big blue eyes as she prods about in my gob makes it hurt

    Your meal may only be a temporary affair then; "Alcohol should be
    avoided because metronidazole and alcohol together can cause severe
    nausea, vomiting, cramps, flushing, and headache. "

    Similarly with a dentist I had a few years back. Pert breats pressing
    against you is an amazingly effective distraction from pain :)

    Bear has the right of it. I was on them recently. They make me feel sick
    without alcohol. With just does not bear thinking about.

    Metronidazole is why I wasn't drinking when you and Andy popped
    over for a curry. You know me, it'd have to be a damn good reason
    to keep me from partaking...

    If you can't get through 3 days without booze...
    I thought it was the hygienist who did the polish?

    4 days. I was advised to give it another 24 hours after the course to
    make sure it had cleared my system.

    Same as last year, fit as hell and her left tit was right on my shoulder,
    lovely and warm she was, no idea what work I had done now.

    Chemically similar (I believe) and has almost the same effect as
    'antabuse' (q.v.) which is used in the treatment of alcoholics. In the
    latter case it's /intended/ to make you feel very sick if you drink: with
    metronidazole it's what Microsoft describe as 'a feature'.

    I had an appalling reaction to Metronidazole last year, and that was
    without the alcohol. On top of the near hourly puking (less if I tried
    drinking water, eating was right out), it also made me feel as if
    someone had set my skin on fire. Nothing - calomine lotion, wet
    towels, antihistamine - helped. Apparently if you've taken it before,
    the chances are you'll react badly next time.

    I do know someone who benefitted from the misery though.

    crn posted the same inaccurate response when this topic cropped up a few
    days ago.

    Incidentally, the wiki article on Metronidazole references some peer
    reviewed studies. These suggest that the Antabuse like effects reported are
    not attributable to Metronidazole. One suggests that serotonin-active
    medications or serotonin syndrome may be implicated. footnotes 7,8,9.
    has a list of agents that can cause serotonim syndrome.

    Following on the wiki links, this one
    suggests fags & curries (turmeric) could be implicated....

    Fair enough. It does seem to be the AB of choice for dental issues,
    doesn't it.

    Nor I, but Jude did some research on this at Uni, and concluded that
    the most significant effect of not drinking with antibiotics was that
    you'd a) remember to take them on time and b) not flush them down the
    toilet with the rest of the stomach contents.

    Partially as it's particularly effective against anaerobic bacteria
    AIUI. Last time I looked anyway.

    Deep root infections being rather an oxygen free environment.
