It depends...: ...on the antibiotic and the reason for treatment. Some infections require antibiotic treatment for many months or even years -- and rarely, for life. OTOH, you should not take any antibiotic for such a prolonged period unless prescribed. If you have concerns about your particular infection and the antibiotic(s) prescribed, discuss it with the doctor treating you.
