Who should not use MetroGel Vaginal?

You should not use MetroGel Vaginal if you are allergic to metronidazole. Additionally, you may not be able to use this drug if you have circulation problems (such as Raynaud's syndrome), liver disease, or seizure disorders. If you are taking medications for those conditions, your doctor may need to adjust dosing or may need to choose a treatment for your vaginal infection other than MetroGel Vaginal. If you have taken Antabuse (disulfiram) in the past two weeks, you may not be able to use MetroGel Vaginal. While this drug is not anticipated to be harmful to a fetus, tell your doctor if you are pregnant before using MetroGel. Also inform your doctor if you are breastfeeding as this drug may pass to your baby through breast milk.
