Simply put: all of it.
Stopping an antibiotic before finishing all the pills is the number one cause for rebound of the disease and drug resistant bacteria. Docs give you exactly what they think you need. You feel better in two or three days. The bug is still there, just not as many. It takes the full course of the drug to get rid of all of it. The med is doing a whole lot more than you think. Makes sense? You should never have a left over antibiotic. Unless the doc changes it because the first didn't work. :-)
