    Hello, I tell everyone I can about this because it can be really bad. I have diverticulosis and sometimes it gets infected, (Diverticulitis) and if anyone else has it knows they pump u full of antibiotics. Specifically Ceprin and Flagyl. What no Dr thinks to tell their patients is Flagyl reduces the bodies ability to break down alcohol and one other important thing....... Propylene Glycol.... The bottle says to not drink alcohol but nothing about propylene glycol. What happens in a normal situation is it takes about 3 days for your body to break down PG, flagyl stops the ability to break it down and it in fact starts to poison your body. I was hospitalized with 8% kidney function due to this. Once i figured out what was causing this i both stopped the flagyl and stopped vaping temporarily. I Have fully recovered and it was just an acute issue. I am still vaping but now when i have diverticulitus i skip the flagyl. Please learn from my Issue and tell anyone you know who vapes and has to take flagyl. Hope this finds someone soon enough. Best of luck out there.

    I'm a nurse and it is suppose to be listed as a interaction. (Interaction pathway similar to alcohol) A link for future reference.

    Go to interaction (scroll down) with alcohol. I have to know this because I give the medication to patients.
    The information is usually given to people at the pharmacy. Always ask your pharmacy about interactions if concern is warranted. :)

    oh it was in the booklet that was given, I just think this is something that should be put on the bottle. I also think if the Dr I am seeing knows I vape because I openly tell them, that this is something they should tell their patients.

    What about polyglycol in so many foods? Inhalers? Lotions?
