Last week my 11 month old had an ear infection and was given 2 antibiotics. One taken orally and one that were in the form of ear drops. I'm supposed to give it to her twice a day for 10 days.
Around day 3 as I was measuring the oral medicine, the bottle tipped over and some spilled out. The bottle looked like not too much had spilled so I decided to continue to use it and see if I could complete her dosage without having to get more. I was thinking sometimes it comes with a little extra.
Well I just gave her the last of it today and she still has one more day to take it. Should I call the doctor for more? Or let it go considering she got 90% of the treatment and will get 100% of the other medicine that's in the form of ear drops? We have an appointment next week to see if the infection will be gone or not.

call the pharmacy and explain, see if they will just give you more... I think they might... not for free, but without needing a new prescription. If they so no then call your pediatrician and see.
