Rozex should not used in patients with a diagnosis or history of blood dyscrasia. Exposure of treated sites to UV or strong sunlight i.e. sunbathing should be avoided during use of Rozex as exposure transforms metronidazole into a inactive metabolite therefore decreasing its effectiveness. Rozex should be avoided if you are allergic to Metronidazole or its excipients. Interaction with oral medication is unlikely because absorption of metronidazole following topical application is low.
Patients who are allergic to Metronidazole or its excipients, pregnant or breastfeeding, under 18 or suffer from blood dyscrasias should not used Rozex. Rozex may also interact with certain conditions or medications such as warfarin. Please fill in the questionnaire honestly and accurately so the prescriber can make an informed decision.
