Pharmacist: The adult dose is between 250mg and 500mgs every 8 hours(roughly 3 doses per 24 hours). Check with your pharmacist to find out how many mgs in each teaspoon in the bottle of mixed amoxicillin you obtained.

Depends on the dose: Amoxicillin comes in 250mgm in 5 ml and adults usually need 500 mgm 3 times a day So it comes to 250mgm/5ml Give 10 ml 3 times a day This for adults who refuse to swallow capsules
