More than enough with periods on birth control!

Patient : I started taking birth control again about 5 months ago....ever since i started taking it again i have had 3 out of 4 weeks of a period. I went to my doctor today and she is advising taking a full pack of birth control in a weeks time and then taking a week off to have my period, and then starting a new pack the following week. What would your suggestion be? i am worried it may be too much hormones with taking a full months pack in 1 week. Any suggestions or would you agree with her on trying that? I am 36, i also take lamisil 250mg and neurontin 800mg. I had checked with the pharmacist and they said that neither one of those should affect the birth control. I just had a pap and everything was normal. Please advise me on what i should do.
