  • your dr or pharmacist should have told you how much to take. Call them back and ask if you dont know. only they can tell you how much is safe to take.

  • It all varies depending on what it is being taken for, duration of treatment, age and weight of the person taking it. Speak to a doctor about this.

  • Usually it's 1 tsp twice a day for 10 days...your doc should have told you and it should be on the bottle of amox.

  • For the baby or yourself?
    Like other said, it depends on weight and what it's for.
    The dose will vary but as far as how often it's usually twice/day for 10 days.
    My son was just on 7.5 ml
