What can be done if a 2 year old drinks well over half a bottle 250 mg / 5 ml amoxicillin for oral suspension  that was prescribe a 6 month old baby?

Not a problem: Other than some diarrhea and possibly an upset stomach, this is not going to be harmful and there is no antidote needed for an Amoxicillin overdose. They will be fine, but i wouldn't want to be the one changing diapers the next few days! ...Read more

Plain amoxicillin 875 mg 2x/day for 10 days is a effective alternative to amox-clavulanate & has fewer side effects. ...Read more
