Hi Jnicole20
It is not advisable for you to discontinue taking your antibiotic Flagyl after 5 days.
Flagyl is used as a parasitic and bacterial antibiotic.
Depending upon the severitness of the infection Flagyl is usually prescribed for 7 to 10 days. I would take the remaining two days (4 pills).
Besides why take a chance on the infection returning.
Be well
