I do not have any connection to billing information. I only work with customers like yourself.

She can take a quarter tablet twice daily for 7-14 days. I will warn you that oral meds are typically not elected for ear infections and we tend to use ear medications, instead. That said, there's no reason to believe that oral meds may not help her.

I’ll be standing by if you have other questions. Let me know if I can help further.
