I bought penicillin in Mexico. It is 800,000 UI. How much should I take for strep throat?

HiCustomer

Is it penicilian G or Penicillian V. Do you know if it has potassium?

All these effect the dossage and indications.

It is penicillian V and it does not have potassium.

Hello garrett-

 

800 000 U is equivalent to 500 mg.

If each of your pills is 800 000 U, then I would take a half pill ( 400 000 U ) pill 3 times daily for 10 days. I am of course assuming you are not allergic to penicillin.

 

Good luck.
