    How long should I wait to start Flagyl after drinking wine?

    I had some wine with dinner and read the insert on the Flagyl I was just prescribed. It says not to drink at least 48 hours after finishing the drug. It doesn't say anything about how long to wait after taking alcohol before taking the medicine. Does anyone know the answer. Thanks.
