Patient : My doctor diagnosed me with strep throat, which (unfortunately) I get just about every year. She has prescribed 500mg Amoxicillin 3 times a day for 5 days. As I recall, in past cases I have been prescribed antibiotics (often Amoxicillin) 2 times a day for 10 days, although I do not remember the dosage. This is the first time I have seen this doctor and I was just wondering if 500mg Amoxicillin 3 times a day for 5 days normal treatment for strep. Thanks.
