Hi...I understand your concern.

Usually Belladona does not interact with Penicillin group of drugs.

It is commonly used drug for tonsillitis.

The dose is 5 pellets of Belladona - thrice a day for 5 days or 7 days please.

If it helps to make my daughter stronger against tonsillitis.

It will not make her stronger - it just relieves the symptoms.
