medtech254 : Hello! I will be assisting you today.
medtech254 : It is best to take the tablets as prescribed at the lower dose over a period of time.
medtech254 : What this does is maintain a constant level of the antibiotic which is much more effective making sure all of the microorganisms are killed. This prevents the std from coming back even stronger.
medtech254 : With a high one time dosage you can kill most of the std organism. However, any that remain will multiply and be 3-4 times stronger. Some may even become resistant to the antibiotic.
medtech254 : Also
medtech254 : If you take high dose antibiotics you will kill non-target microorganisms that are needed by your body. This would include ones in the intestines, etc.
medtech254 : The high dose will kill them and cause sever diarrhea, cramping, etc.
medtech254 : This is the reason a low constant dosage is given.
medtech254 : It is effective and does not harm the other organisms so much.
