Variable: I assume you have been diagnosed with trichomoniasis. If you have no allergies the standard dose is Metronidazole 2 grams one time. Alternatively, your doctor may prescribe 500mg twice a day for 7 days.

Trich Treatment: The most commonly used medication to treat trichomoniasis in both males and females is Metronidazole (trade name is flagyl) with a usual dosage of 500mg twice a day for 7 days. Your doctor can also try 2 1000mg doses twelve hours apart for one day. You should also have your partner get treated as well, otherwise you risk reinfection. Safe sex (condoms) can decrease the incidence of transmission.
