Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com

Bacterial vaginosis is a disease caused by an overgrowth of normal bacteria found in the vagina (Gardnerella vaginalis), while candidiasis is a disease caused by a fungal infection of Candida (Candida albicans). Both are very different, so the management will also be very different. The first choice therapy for bacterial vaginosis is Metronidazole, while the first choice therapy for candidiasis vaginalis is with antifungals (for example Fluconazole).


Itraconazole is an antifungal drug so it will not be effective for treating bacterial infections such as bacterial vaginosis. It is better to follow the procedures given by your doctor and do not stop treatment without consulting your doctor first. You can consume more amount of metronidazole with water or you can also take this medicine with sweet drinks (like syrup or sugar water) if you are not strong with bitter taste. But changing your own medicines is not the right thing to do.
