Metronidazole Nz Formulary

Metronidazole is a prescription medication used to treat a variety of bacterial and parasitic infections. Medical staff who may be involved in the administration or prescription of metronidazole include:

Physicians: Physicians are responsible for diagnosing infections and prescribing appropriate treatment, which may include metronidazole.

Pharmacists: Pharmacists are responsible for dispensing medications, including metronidazole, and providing information on dosage, administration, and potential side effects.

Nurses: Nurses may administer metronidazole to patients in a hospital or clinical setting, or provide education on how to use the medication properly.

Laboratory staff: Laboratory staff may be involved in testing samples to diagnose bacterial or parasitic infections that may be treated with metronidazole.

It's important for medical staff to be aware of potential side effects and interactions of metronidazole with other medications, as well as appropriate dosages and administration methods. They should also monitor patients for any adverse reactions and adjust treatment plans as needed. If you have questions or concerns about metronidazole or any other medication, it's always best to consult with a healthcare provider.
