My son doesn't respond well to amoxicillin for ear infections/strep, what would be the best antibiotic for him to take?
Hard to say: The strep germ is universally sensitive to any penicillin drug, so any perceived failure to amoxicillin is likely a reinfection or a strep carrier problem. The 1st drug tried for an otitis fails about 10% of the time regardless of drug used. The drug that will work depends on the sensitivity of the germ, that changes with each infection, so there is no perfect choice. Luckily we have several ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
My son is on day 4 of Amoxicillin for strep. Fever is gone but he can hardly swollen without crying in pain. Is it typical?
Maybe: Strep verified by testing? If so, Amoxicillin is an effective treatment when given in proper amounts. The response varies with the patient and co-factors. Kids can have a throat infection virus and carry strep at the same time. This slows improvement. Time delay before treatment also means there will be a slower response. The lack of fever is a good sign. I'd call your docs office for guidance ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What's the correct dosage for amoxicillin and how much a day for my 3 1/2 year old. Weighing 37 pounds. She has strep.
Rx'd by physician?: Was the strep throat formally diagnosed by a physician? Strep should be diagnosed by a physician via a rapid test or culture, you don't want to treat with antibiotics for a viral pharyngitis. The physician would have prescribed the amoxicillin in the dosage that is correct. As a general rule, it is 40 mg/kg per day divided into 2-3 doses for a strep infection. Amount depends on concentration. ...Read more
500 mg of amoxicillin, twice a day, would need to be taken for 10-14 days to cure a moderate strep throat infection. It might not be sufficient for a severe infection.
If you are considering self-treating a throat infection, I would recommend you see a doctor instead. Some things which look like strep to the naked eye are viral infections, which don't respond to antibiotics at all.
My son was given amoxicillin 400 mg/ 5 ml for strep. It says to give 20.5 ml 2 times a day. He wEighs 93 lbs is this safe?
Safe=yes, needed=no: This is a dose that I might use to get the meds into the thick muck of a sinus or middle ear infection but it is not needed to treat simple strep.10ml of this preparation 2X/day would be adequate therapy. If the doc saw an ear or sinus infection & didn't tell you, that's a different issue. Any excess med would exit though his kidneys within hours, he might be more likely to have loose stools. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
My daughter &son weregiven amoxicillin for strep in august, my daughter has become sick again so I gave her this med (exp shows 2014) is this ok?
Bad idea: If it was a liquid med, it begins to deteriorate as soon as water is added and Amoxicillin is no longer good after 2 wks in thr refrigerator or 1 week at room temperature. (no matter what the expiration for the dry powder). If a pill, it would be still in date, but without a proper test proven strep, the treatment may be wrong. If mono, you may be rewarded with an interesting rash. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
