I am seeing so many different dosages and times. What is the true answer?? I guess there isn't one.

Some people are on 750 a day, others 1500...

I take zero.

I'm too big of a sissy baby to try it. Maybe start low and work up slowly? But ask your doc. I am not a doc and can't advise.

Many doctors, many dosages. Just make sure you can handle whatever it is that you're ON!

1,500 but I started slowly.No really bad reactions. Be careful the first three days, afterwards it is easier.

I am pulsing 500 mg. TWICE daily ... 3 weeks on then 3 weeks off, and repeat.

This is my first time on Flagyl and herxed on the 4th day and have had some herxing since then as well.

Yesterday was a really bad herx day and night after 3 nights of minimal sleep.

Thankfully, I finally slept really well last night so today has not been bad symptomatically!

I'm slowly increasing it by one pill each week. I'll eventually go on 3 capsules, 3 times per day, for 3 days out of the week. At the same time laying off Doxy on those days. He didn't want me to Herx too bad.
