DrBailey :

Penicillin is a very mild antibiotic. It is also very effective. It works very well and the amount that you were given is completely within the therapeutic range for Penicillin. I would not worry about it. Sometimes it is given for ten - fourteen days so continue to take the medication as prescribed.
