Tell your doctor before you start taking Filmet tablets, suppositories, liquid or vaginal gel if you're taking these medicines:

  • a blood thinner called warfarin
  • lithium (used to treat some types of mental health problem)
  • disulfiram (used to help people stay off alcohol)
  • phenytoin or phenobarbitone (used to treat epilepsy)

Can Filmet cause problems?

Along with their useful effects, most medicines can cause unwanted side-effects although not everyone experiences them. The table below contains some of the ones associated with Filmet. You will find a full list in the manufacturer's information leaflet supplied with your medicine. The unwanted effects often improve as your body adjusts to the new medicine, but speak with your doctor or pharmacist if any of the following continue or become troublesome.

What if I use too much?

If you accidentally use too much gel it's unlikely to harm you.

Talk to your pharmacist or doctor if you're worried.

It's unusual to have side effects when using Filmet cream or gel. However there can be some common side effects with the tablets, suppositories or vaginal gel.

Do not drink alcohol while taking the tablets or liquid or using the vaginal gel or suppositories. It can give you severe side effects such as feeling or being sick, stomach pain, hot flushes, a pounding heartbeat (palpitations) and a headache. After finishing your treatment, wait for 2 days before drinking alcohol again. This allows the Filmet to leave your body.

Drugs you should not take with Filmet

Do not take Filmet if you’ve taken disulfiram in the last two weeks.

Serious side effects of Flagyl are rare and the drug should be stopped if these symptoms appear:

Renal failure

  • Mild to moderate renal impairment: Dose adjustment not considered necessary as elimination half-life not significantly altered
  • Severe renal impairment or end stage of renal disease: Filmet and Filmet metabolites may accumulate significantly because of reduced urinary excretion; monitor in severe renal impairment or end stage of renal disease, not undergoing hemodialysis
  • Hemodialysis removes significant amounts of Filmet and its metabolites from systemic circulation; supplementation may be necessary
  • Peritoneal dialysis: Monitor for signs of toxicity due to potential accumulation of Filmet metabolites


Proliferation of Candida in the vagina, dyspareunia, decrease of libido, proctitis, and fleeting joint pains sometimes resembling “serum sickness.” Rare cases of pancreatitis, which generally abated on withdrawal of the drug, have been reported.

Patients with Crohn's disease are known to have an increased incidence of gastrointestinal and certain extraintestinal cancers. There have been some reports in the medical literature of breast and colon cancer in Crohn's disease patients who have been treated with Filmet at high doses for extended periods of time. A cause and effect relationship has not been established. Crohn's disease is not an approved indication for FLAGYL tablets.

Do not share this medication with others.

This medication has been prescribed for your current condition only. Do not use it later for another condition unless told to do so by your doctor. A different medication may be necessary in those cases.

Sun exposure can worsen rosacea. Limit exposure to the sun by wearing a wide-brimmed hat and using a sunscreen that is SPF 15 or greater. If your brand already contains a sunscreen, you should use a regular sunscreen (without the Filmet) on areas of skin not treated with this medication.

Avoid certain triggers that may worsen rosacea such as wind, hot beverages, spicy foods, alcohol, and extreme cold. Discuss with your doctor.

Mechanism of Injury

The cause of acute liver injury due to Filmet is probably immunoallergic, given the short latency period and recurrence with rechallenge. However, the frequency of severe hepatotoxicity in children with Cockayne syndrome suggests a direct toxic effect, probably involving breaks in double stranded DNA.

Serious side effects of tablets, liquid, suppositories or vaginal gel

Serious side effects are rare and happen in less than 1 in 1,000 people.

Call a doctor straight away if:

  • you get yellow skin or the whites of your eyes turn yellow - these can be warning signs of liver or gallbladder problems
  • you get unexpected infections, mouth ulcers, bruising, bleeding gums, or extreme tiredness - these can be caused by a blood problem
  • you have bad stomach pains which may reach through to your back - this can be a sign of pancreatitis
  • you have blurred or double vision
  • you have a fever (38C and above) and stiff neck, you're seeing or hearing things that aren't there (hallucinating), feeling confused, unable to cope with bright light or having difficulty speaking - these can be warning signs of meningitis, or that Filmet is affecting your brain

If you suspect that you or someone else are showing signs of meningitis, or other problems related to the brain, speak to a doctor or go to your nearest accident and emergency (A&E) department straight away.

How it works

Filmet belongs to a class of drugs called nitroimidazole antimicrobials. A class of drugs is a group of medications that work in a similar way. These drugs are often used to treat similar conditions.

Antimicrobials are drugs used to treat infections. Nitroimidazole antimicrobials treat infections caused by bacteria and other organisms called protozoa. Filmet tablets work by killing the bacteria or other organism that’s causing the infection. This relieves the infection.

Filmet oral tablet doesn’t cause drowsiness, but it can cause other side effects.

What is Filmet (Flagyl, Flagyl ER), and how does it work?

Flagyl is an antibiotic effective against anaerobic bacteria and certain parasites. Anaerobic bacteria are single-celled, living organisms that thrive in environments in which there is little oxygen (anaerobic environments). Anaerobic bacteria can cause disease in the abdomen (bacterial peritonitis), liver (liver abscess), and pelvis (abscess of the ovaries and the Fallopian tubes). Giardia lamblia and ameba are intestinal parasites that can cause abdominal pain and diarrhea in infected individuals. Trichomonas is a vaginal parasite that causes inflammation of the vagina (vaginitis). Filmet selectively blocks some of the functions within the bacterial cells and the parasites resulting in their death.


Filmet has been reported to increase plasma concentrations of busulfan, which can result in an increased risk for serious busulfan toxicity. Filmet should not be administered concomitantly with busulfan unless the benefit outweighs the risk. If no therapeutic alternatives to Filmet are available, and concomitant administration with busulfan is medically needed, frequent monitoring of busulfan plasma concentration should be performed and the busulfan dose should be adjusted accordingly.
