New baby beardie- coccidia, flagellates, and spirochetes

I recently acquired a new baby beardie about 3 weeks ago. Took her to our exotic vet to get a fecal done and she tested positive for coccidia, flagellates, and spirochetes. The vet prescribed panacur, ponazuril, and metronidazole all at .02 dosages. She is 29 grams, about 11-12 weeks old.

Is it okay to give her these meds simultaneously or can one thing be treated at a time? She eats like a champ and her poop is normal (other than the stench). Is there one med I should prioritize over the other? I know she needs to be treated for all parasites but I feel like 3 meds at once is a lot for a tiny baby. Also, should I take out all of the enclosure decor until she’s clear of the coccidia? I’ll be disinfecting it all today. Currently using paper towels as substrate for easy clean up. Any tips would be helpful. Here’s a pic of our Jazzy for attention

As far as decor only keep necessities - please get some F10 it is a vet disinfectant - look on eBay or Amazon - works great - good to have on hand- it's a concentrate

Hello,

I am not sure that I saw this in my inbox!
She is a beauty, very sweet.
For her age & weight, that seems a bit excessive to me. How long have you had her? What did
the fecal test results say, were the levels high enough to warrant all 3 medications?

Hi I have a hypo bearded dragon called Buddy. He is two, and I have a lot of experience looking after him. He has never benn sick before so I am hoping he will not!
Hello , im still figureing out this platform,
So violet laid eggs, weeks ago, she was doing very well , in the last 3 to 4 days her poop was more than runny . Haven't changed much in her diet , an appetite is very good. Should I be considering a parasites remedy as she does get bloated as soon as she starts to eat.
