How often do you take the flagyl? 3 days a week? 3 days every 4th week?

Also, Do you discontinue your other meds the days you pulse or take them as well as the flagyl?

I did 3 days this weekend too- 750 mg a day

But I stopped my other meds. I think this is what my doc said to do. I have to call again and ask.
