Brief Answer: Take 400 mg orally once as a single. Detailed Answer: Hi, I have read your query. You should take 400 mg orally once as a single dose; may repeat in 2 weeks. It is a prescription drug to be taken under the supervision of your doctor. I also recommend all household contacts of you must receive treatment even if other people in household are symptomless. You must remember that you must take care of your personal hygiene along with medication, as personal hygiene is equally important as medication taken by you. I hope you have your answer. Thanks.
