I have to take 1g amoxicillin three times a day, how often should I take it? Can it be taken say every 6 hours?

I have to take 1g amoxicillin three times a day, how often should I take it? Can it be taken say every 6 hours?

6 hours is fine: If the prescription says 3 times a day (tid), every 8 hours is not the requirement.

It means 3 times a day while awake, roughly every 6 hours. ...Read more

Insect bite?: You CAN do anything you wish. The question is whether it is appropriate, and without seeing the area in question it is impossible to know what is needed. The best thing to do is let a doctor see this. Augmentin, (amoxicillin and clavulanate) even if you need an antibiotic, is far down the list of potential choices. Go see your family doctor. ...Read more
