I'm on longterm abx for severe bladder wall infection, been prescription amoxicillin 1g 3x a day - is 6 hours apart each dose ok?
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. When it comes to oral antibiotics such as amoxicillin, every 6 hours should be practically just as good. Long answer but that's what i expect of my patients if i write 3 times a day prescription. It means 3 times a day while awake, roughly every 6 hours. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I'm on another week of 1g x3 daily amoxicillin which i've used two weeks ago but this time I have a mild pin prick rash on my chest & stomach?Why?
I take my last amoxicillin treatment (14 days) of 1g twice a day ( h.pyroli infection) This morning. Can I have an alcoholic beverage tonight?
Not good idea: Anytime you are on medication, alcoholic beverages shouldn't be taken at the same time. With your history of h. pylori, you need to be cleared of it thru a breath test, (or stool sample or both). Having ethanol on board is just not a good idea. Ask your doctor when you can have or resume alcohol. In general, it affects your GI tract, and immune, and neurological system & not wise to do. ...Read more
