Don't worry. Iknow what you went through. They gave me a single dose (1 gram) of a drug that was supposed to kill it right away. It did not work, so I was prescribed DOXYCYCLINE.
DOXYCYCLINE works by preventing the growth and multiplication of susceptile bacteria by interfering with formation of essential proteins and causing leaky cell walls.
How long it takes to work depends on the severity of infection and the strength of your immune system. Usually 7-10 days. However, you should continue to take all medication even after symptoms have subsided to prevent reinfection.
