What is it
Generic Flagyl is an antibiotic that works against anaerobic bacteria and certain parasites. It is an antibiotic, antiprotozoal and amebicide. It is the first choice in treatment of early Clostridium difficile infections, among others. It is used to treat bacterial peritonitis, liver and pelvis abscesses and vaginitis caused by trichomonas. In topical form, it can also be used in treatment of rosacea and fungating tumors.
Classification and Mechanism of Action
The active ingredient of Generic Flagyl is metronidazole, a nitroimidazole antibiotic, amebicide and antiprotozoal. When taken metronidazole is absorbed by the bacteria and the parasites. Once it enters them, it deactivates selected enzymes which results in cell death and the bacteria or parasites die off, unable to survive or spread.
