Unfortunately from what I read and understand Flagyl (Metronidazole) is the best treatment for it. Both partners should be treated even if the other has no symptoms in order to kill it completely. Sorry 4 pills it is. Wish I could help more.

Yeah, you can take 1 pill per day but make sure you get a follow up and make sure the trich is gone after treatment. This medication gives you a metallic taste and makes most people horrible nauseous. You may also be able to use the metro gel, which is strictly for vagina use and may not give you the horrible nausea or taste. My first ob/gyn gave me 8 of these pills and told me to take all 8 at once. Either way you take it, you may have a yeast infection after treatment. You must get your partner treated as well for the trich, trich is actually a protozoan and is communicable.

omg... How did you feel taking 8 pills @ once? So the 4 pills I have ..I can take 1 per day & it should be gone? Or should I take 2 pills one day & 2 the next? I do have the gel... is that good for the trich as well? I had the gel for the bacteria. Is it safe to do both gel & pills? Also is it safe to be on amoxicillin & take metro? The nurse said it was ok but I wanted to wait until I finished the one first. any suggestions?

Let's just say I didn't keep the 8 pills down for very long and felt horrible for a whole day. You can take 2 pills per day, my suggestion was for if it is making you sick on your stomach. I have heard of people taking flagyl ( the pills) and another antibiotic, if the doctor said to do that, and you aren't feeling too bad, you can do that. You may get a yeast since both medicines are so strong, make sure you have a check up to make sure the trich is gone. You can use both the pills and the gel at the same time.
