Customer Question

Second opinion] Hi ive had a stye for four days. I saw a doctor yesterday who gave m 500 mg amoxycilin twice a day. I know its worse in the morning but today its big, and actually moving to the edge of my eyelid - the fluid. Is this the right drug and should I go and get something else / go to hospital?

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

Would it be worth upping dose? Am on 500 twice a day.
Expert:  DR.EHTISHAM replied 2 months ago.

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