Amoxicillin - I was prescribed 4000mg a day. Is that to much for a 230lb male age 29?

Dear heavens, antibiotics aren't dosed by size or weight in adults. They are dosed by the kind of infection being treated. Some infections this would not be considered too much.

I had strep throat, ear infection, and sinus infection. If its not by age, gender, or weight then why did poison control ask me that information?

If you think that is to much call your Doctor, he can give you a stronger one with less mgs.

If you think your being mistreated by someone do you go to them to ask if your being mistreated? This forum its clearly just a forum of which anyone can respond.
