i was bitten by and animal on christmas eve. i got out of ER with stitches on christmas day. i was told to start taking antibiotics ASAP but all pharmacies are close. my brother has left over penicillin from a throat abscess he had a few months ago. can i take them to atleast help fight infection until tomorrow?
What did they order for you? I'm not sure penicillin would even help that. The er should have given you 24 hrs of antibiotics knowing that nothing is opened. It probably won't hurt, but will it help.
Here's the other thing I have to say. Your brother should not have left over antibiotics. When a dr orders antibiotics you are supposed to take all of them, not stop when you feel better.
