Detailed Answer:
Hi and thanks so much for this query.

preferred drug is metronidazole. it is an antibiotic and requires a doctors script for medications to be dispensed. Talk to your doctor about this so that we can actually get the right dose for you. Treatment duration is often not more than 7days and in most cases 3-5days. it is a safe drug with minimal side effects. You must not take alcohol while on this drug.

I hope this helps. I wish you well. Feel free to follow up with me if need be for more details and clarifications.
