My 4 years son has an ear pain for more than 3 hours, he also has cold and cough... Could you please advise if we can take amoxicillin ear drops?
No: There is no such thing as Amoxicillin ear drops. Amoxicillin is an oral antibiotic. It is not unusual to get ear pain with an upper respiratory infection. Check for fever. Generally ear pain will resolve within 24 hours. Give him a pain reliever. If he starts running high fevers or pain does not resolve, than call his doctor to be seen. ...Read more
Is it alright to take an OTC cough syrup while taking an antibiotic? I went into see a doctor today and was diagnosed with bronchitis. I took my first dose of amoxicillin at 4pm cdt. I am having one of those hacking coughing attacks almost to the point of

I am on vacation and have prescription amoxicillin with me. I have a scratchy throat, slight cough caused by the tickle. Can I take it? I'm in sun

Will amoxicillin work for an upper respiratory infection? Persistent cough over a week now with clear phlegm and wheezing. Take pro-air as needed.
Probably not: Antibiotics are to treat bacterial infections and do nothing for allergies or viruses If you are wheezing you should take the proair q 4 hours and see your doctor as you may need an ancillary agent such as an inhaled steroid to calm down the chest inflammation Also some forms of chest infection are not associated with fever so close f/u with your doctor is essential ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
