A female client is treated for trichomoniasis with metronidazole (Flagyl). The nurse instructs the client that:
1. The medication should not alter the color of the urine.
2. She should discontinue oral contraceptive use during this treatment.
3. She should avoid alcohol during treatment and for 24 hours after completion of the drug.
4. Her partner does not need treatment.
Metronidazole (Flagyl) can cause a disulfiram (Antabuse)-likereaction if it is taken with alcohol. Tachycardia, nausea, vomiting, and other serious interaction effects can occur. Flagyl will make the urine a darker color. Oral contraceptives should never be discontinued with trichomoniasis. The partner also requires treatment to prevent retransmission of infection.
