Take this medication by mouth usually once or twice daily, or as directed by your doctor. You may take this medicine with food if stomach upset occurs. Dosage is based on your medical condition and response to therapy. In children, the dosage is also based on weight.
Antibiotics work best when the amount of medicine in your body is kept at a constant level. Therefore, take this drug at evenly spaced intervals.
Continue to take this medication until the full-prescribed amount is finished, even if symptoms disappear after a few days. Stopping the medication too early may allow bacteria to continue to grow, which may result in a relapse of the infection.
