How many pills of how many milligrams x how many days?

I'm just double checking WallyWorld since the handwriting was difficult to decipher. What I got was 250MG x 40 capsules.

Would it be appropriate for a bacterial sinus infection?

What would the approximate Fishmox conversion be?

(Kidding about the fishmox. The prescription only cost $6.00 at Walmart.)

Nope, it means you weigh 290 pounds, so you needed 40 pills.

Take them all at once and then call your doctor saying you have a tummy ache.

Then tell him to write it better before you throw up on him.

Amoxil is typically taken 2-3 times daily for 10-14 days sinusitis.

For an adult the dose is usullay 500 mg 3 x daily or 875 mg twice daily.

Unknown why they gave you 250 mg capsules or the #40 though.

I'm #190 and was told one 500mg twice a day for two weeks for sinus infection.

Edit to add:

Worked within five days but completed the two weeks to be sure.
