First off, no judgement!! My 12 yr old is finished with the antibiotics and I have a free refill. My son is having the same symptoms she is but we do not have insurance. So, I want to know if anyone else has a 40 lb child that has had amoxicillin prescribed recently. I am just wanted to double check what I have come up with versus what other moms have had prescribed. He is having sinus infection type symptoms.

Not judging but unless she has a very high fever, not eating & is lethargic, I would not give her anything. The reason why people are becoming drug resistant (MRSA) is because they have unnecessarily taken antibiotics & when they really need them they do not work. I would let it run it's course and if it gets bad, bring her to the Dr. Not every antibiotic treats every illness. You may be giving her the wrong one than she needs. It could make her more sick.
