Can you switch from ciprofloxacin to amoxicillin if after 5 days the ciprofloxacin does not appear to be working, or should I take them together?

In brief: Correct Way

to take antibiotics is for your prescribing doctor to decide which antibiotic you should take.
You should never have "left over" antibiotics as that means you did not follow instructions the last time.
