Flagyl 375 mg
Although the prescription medicine Flagyl® (metronidazole) can be used to treat infections caused by certain bacteria, not everyone takes the same amount. Various factors affect how much Flagyl a person is prescribed, as well as how often the drug is taken.
For example, when treating trichomoniasis (a sexually transmitted infection), there are two different standard dosing regimens. A one-day treatment of Flagyl 2 grams in a single dose or two doses of 1 gram (both taken in one day) is a convenient option. A seven-day treatment of 250 mg of Flagyl three times daily (or 375 mg twice daily) can also be used, and may be more effective than the one-day treatment.
