what is metronidazol used for

I cannot breeze trough my nose very irritated I used too much Zicam Wold Metronidazol help take off irritation inside nose ? ## I have nostrils inflamed because of too much use of Zicam Is Metronidazol good to use to go back to normal ? ## Hello, Angelo! How are you? No, Metronidazole is an antibiotic and it's only effective at treating bacterial infections. It won't do anything to help with this type of irritation. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, stomach pain and diarrhea. You will most likely need to just give it some time for the irritation to ease, unless your doctor feels it requires treatment. Is there anything else I can help with?

Side effects of CPram S20 and Zicam 1

My mother, 68, suffered from acute depression in the past (till around 15 years ago). Later on she came out of the acute stage and from around 2002 onwards she was fairly okay. In 2004 she was diagnosed suffering from osteoporosis. In 2005 she was prescribed CPram S20 and Zicam 1, to be taken on a daily basis. 9 years have passed and she is doing fine. Do the medicines have any major side effect or after effect? pleaseadvise

drug interactions with zicam

can you take zicam and claritan ## zicam with klonopin and luvox? ## Can Zicam be safely used with rheumatoid arthritis drugs methotrexate and Enbrel? ## There are quite a few products that carry the Zicam name, so these questions actually can't be answered, without knowing the specific one that you're asking about. You can learn more Zicam details here. As you can see in the information at the link I've provided, it's actually a family of products, most of which used Zinc in them, but since they have different ingredients, more details would need to be known to see if it's safe to use with any given medication. If anyone would like to post with more details on the specific formulation, I'll gladly see what I can find for you. Are there any comments or questions?

A nasal spray for colds ## I was diagnosed with heavy growth of candida,i treated it for a month but now its recurring. Can i use zycan 200 continuously? ## Which specific product were you asking about? Zicam is the name brand for a group of products that are used to treat cold and allergy symptoms, but not all contain the same ingredients. You can learn more Zicam details here. Additionally, from what I am reading, there is nothing in them that is proven effective at treating candida.
