I am having a medical abortion tomorrow. I was told to take

Customer Question

I am having a medical abortion tomorrow. I was told to take an antibiotic one hour before arriving. It is Metronidazole. I was told not to drink alcohol, but I thought that was if I chose the surgical option. I just drank half a glass of wine. Now I am reading the documents properly and freaking out. What do I need to do?
JA: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking? Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: Was my question read? Not sure. Yes, I have seen a doctor today. They gave me the pill to take tomorrow.
JA: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?
Customer: I take Thyroid Armour. I am allergic to penicillin, erythromicen, sulfa, morphine, codeine
