Thank you

Amoxicillin is a good drug to have in such a condition

It will take about 48 hours or so before you will start noticing an improvement

You should continue with antibiotic and nothing more is required

If you does not feel any better in 48-72 hours on antibiotics then a review from the doctor will be required

Good luck

Feel free to ask if you require any further clarification

If you are satisfied then do leave a POSITIVE RATING (preferably 5 stars) so that I may be credited for my work

Would it be worth upping dose? Am on 500 twice a day.
Doctor: DR.EHTISHAM, Doctor replied 11 months ago

Yes if you does not get better in another 24hour you can increase it to 500mg three times daily

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.
