Hi! Acuzole is a brand name for metronizadole. This is an anti protozoal agent. It's also used to treat bacterial infections caused by anaerobic bacteria, to prevent postop infection in contaminated or potentially contaminated bowel surgery, bacterial vaginosis, C-diff diarrhea and colitis and PID.

Like other drugs, you may also experience side effects like nausea, vomiting, anorexia, metallic taste in the mouth, headache, nervousness, irritability, insomnia, dizziness, ataxia, weakness, confusion, depression, peripheral neuropathy, seizures, hallucinations, skin rash, itching and hives.

If you experience any of these, contact your doctor right away.
