Question about Metronidazole


Recommended Posts

I am curious about something. I notice for dropsy and certain other conditions that mods often recommend a combination of Kanamycin (Kanaplex) and Metronidazole (Metroplex). I guess what my question would be is does it have to be the Kanaplex and Metroplex combo from that manufacturer or would the Metronidazole that I have from National Fish Pharmacy work just as well: http://store.nationalfishpharm.com/NFP-products-Metronidazole-Powder-59582.Item.html  The reason I am asking is I want to know if I should have the other version of Metro on hand just in case of an emergency (I have the Kanaplex).

 

Also, is Neomycin as effective as Kanamycin? I am able to buy that in larger quanity from NFP (NFP no longer sells Kanamycin for some reason). http://store.nationalfishpharm.com/NFP-products-Neomycin-Sulfate-Powder--59583.Item.html

 

All this is just for my future reference to put certain worries at ease. Thanks.

Okay, cool. Thanks for answering my questions. I'm glad I got the Kanamycin when I saw it. I wish NFP still sold it in large quantity though. I'm disappointed that they stopped.
