My husband is healthy and on no other medication . Should amoxicillin be taken on an empty stomach or with food

Amoxicillin can be taken with or without food - food has no effect on the medicine.
Amoxicillin is usually taken three times a day, but may be given twice a day.
"Usual Adult Dose for Otitis Media
250 to 500 mg orally 3 times a day for 10 to 14 days; alternatively, 500 to 875 mg orally twice a day may be administered"
