My son is 2 year old and has a ear infection the doctor prescribed him amoxicillin 250mg twice a day 7.5 ml I think she made a mistake shouldn't it be three times a day
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
He weighs 24 pounds
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
He is also having a fever
Health Professional: Dr. Chip, Doctor (MD) replied 7 months ago

Well I prescribe it for three times a day but many doctors write for twice a day

So I don't think it was a mistake but you should call her to check

Please let me know if you need any more information

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
