Is this dosage excessive? (antibiotics)
    #1119627 - 12/07/02 12:02 PM (14 years, 2 days ago)

I woke up Wednesday and my lymph glands in my neck were swollen.  By Thursday it looked like I had 2 golfballs stuck in my throat so I went to the doc (something I hate to do...I don't trust doctors!).  He said it was caused by an infection and prescribed me some antibiotics.  Now I am taking 500mg Keflex 4 times a day! Thats every 6 hours for a week and a half!!

This seems excessive to me, but I'm no doctor or pharmacist.  Is it normal to take this shit in such large doses?  I hate to medicate myself for any reason other than recreational and this just seems a bit much!

Gotta go....almost time for another pill.... :smirk:

Yeah gram level doses of antibiotics are not uncommon. I'm not familiar with that particular antibiotic, but I'm sure your doctor is a professional... :wink:
