My doctor prescribed 3 500 mg amoxicillin for 10 days in case I had strep. My boyfriend had it and I had all the symptoms so I went ahead and filled it and started taking it. My throat culture just came back Normal with no bacteria so I know I don't need to take the antibiotics. I've been taking the 1500 mg a day for four full days and know that if you stop antibiotics its the worst thing for a bacterial infection... But if I don't have one... I'm guessing I just had a virus... Is it okay to go ahead and stop taking them? Or since I started a ten day course should I finish the ten days?
