tolerable for me.
I woudl give her a pill 3 times daily. She would take it right before school, right afterschool and then right before bedtime. It was easy to swallow and didn't amke her tired or sleepy, so she was able to function at school. It seemed to work tight away usually within the first day of treatment. It was great!!
The infection was mostly cleared up. For a few weeks I felt as though I still had a bit of an infection or it was coming back. But after a while that went away.
I was given a 3 day prescription which is the reason I am submitting this report.
I believe antibiotics should be prescribed in a course of 7 - 10 days.
This practice as far as I know was very popular in Hong Kong and it still might be general practice.
In my case I did not want to return to the doctors office and be charged again for another consultation + purchase additional amoxilin as I was not covered by medical insurance at that time.
Instead I went to a local pharmacy with the package of antibiotics I received from the doctors office and asked if I could buy 12 tablets. They were more than happy to sell them to me (at a fraction of the cost I paid at the doctors office) and I followed through with a 7 day course.
The results were very positive and within 24 hours I could feel relief and I knew that the infection was being affected by the amoxilin. By the 3rd day the swelling was greatly reduced and other than a nasty wound on my ankle bone I felt very good. I continued the remaining 4 days and besides a scar on my ankle at the site of the infection I completely recovered.
I took these two medications along with flagyl for three weeks, 3 times a day (this is my memory of it). Fantastic!
The oral surgeon prescribed amoxicillin as a preventaitive measure after surgery. I opted not to take a breaod spectrum antibiotic when there was no infection present. Within 4 days of surgery it was clear that I did have an infection and filled that prescription. I took 500 mg of amoxicillin 3 times daily and took probiotics at least two hours after each dose of antiobiotics to replace the body's good bacteria. After a few days the infection cleared. I finished the whole course as directed.
I was prescribed 21 Amoxicillin caplets which were 500mg per dose. I was instructed to take the medicine at regularly spaced intervals and to complete the prescribed course. I therefore took one caplet at breakfast at around 8am, one caplet after lunch at around 3pm and one caplet in the evening at around 10pm. I was not advised to take the Amoxicillin caplets with food and, apart from the first daily dose, the times I took the caplets did not coincide with meals. I swallowed the caplets with water as advised.
I was told to take 3 500 mg pills a day over the course of a 7 day period in order to completely and effectively banish the infection, I felt comfortable with this decision and it turned out positive results in the end.
i was required to take drug for seven days. i only took it for 5 days and it still worked
