Can I discontinue taking the medication once my symptoms are gone. I have taken 1 days dosage and already notice significant improvement. In addition to the medication I have taken oil of oregano and garlic/onion soup.

Is there a minimum amount of days I should take for if symptom free?

no you should complete the course for at least 5 days to avoid any bacterial resistance.
