The Wait Time Between Stopping a Medication and having a blood test?
Hello there; I am currently ending a medication run of Flagyl 500mg for 7 days. Approximately how long should I wait before I have blood work taken? Has anyone had experience with this? I know these antibiotics can mess with the accuracy of these tests, like the Amylase and Lipase, so it would be good to have it out of my system beforehand.

Thank you.

At least 5 days. It leaves earlier than that ( through your urine ) by better be safer than sorry.

Hope this helps.
