I have an ear infection. I have seen a doctor about this who has prescribed Flucloxacillin instead of amoxycillin. Which is the better for an ear infection?

Hello
In fact neither is very good.
Both are relatively naroow spectrum.
If you are not getting better you need augmentin, a z pak or bactrim.
Any would be better. The first two especially.

OK. If you have further questions or details, use reply to expert.

Otherwise please choose a positive rating [smiley face or accept]. But, still come back if you need to…think of something later, etc. Bonuses are appreciated.
