I was prescribed this medicine for trich. I did not take the medicine all at once but was allowed to take the medicine home. I took 1 at first, then i took 2 a few hours later, then took the last 1 a few hours later. I wanted to make sure it would still work the same as long as i took it in the 24 hour time frame?
You're fine if you had the single day dose. Here are some guidelines:
-Some studies indicate the 7-day regimen may have higher cure rates (according to vaginal smears, signs/symptoms) than the 1-day regimen.
-Single-dose therapy can assure compliance (especially if supervised) if cannot rely on patient to complete the 7-day regimen.
-A 7-day regimen may minimize reinfection by protecting patient long enough for sexual partner(s) to get appropriate treatment.
