GiveAHootDon'tPollut: What for?More is not necessarily better. But, then again, in specific cases it's given that way (e.g. before some dental procedures). Probably won't hurt, but it would be nice to know what's on your or your doctor's mind (if anything...). No sense in taking it that way if you don't need to. That would just lead to a higher chance of side effects, bacterial resistance and environmental pollution.
