Hi there ...

Thank you for the question ...

Usually for RTI , 500mg once for 1 day, then 250mg once daily for 4 days I s the ideal dose .

As you have already taken dose for 5 days and if still infection is not cleared than you need to consult dr to change antibiotic please , 1 gm dose is not indicated .

Regards ***** ***** luck .

Please rate my answer as good service .
