I don't know.  I'm sure its been studied at that level, but they came to the conclusion that 1gm works best.

I would also urge you to test first.  You might have something else that would need a different antibiotic, and if this one doesn't work, you wouldn't get accurate test results for 2 weeks after taking the antibiotic now.
