If you’ve got a bacterial infection, odds are you’re going to need antibiotics. Leaving a bacterial infection untreated is not only painful but can have serious consequences. When left alone bacteria quickly spread from the infection site to other areas of the body. Luckily, our network of board certified doctors is standing by to diagnose your infection and prescribe antibiotics.

A pharmacist cannot give you antibiotics without a prescription from a doctor.
You should only take antibiotics, including amoxicillin, that have been prescribed directly to you by a reputable doctor. This excludes all fish antibiotics.
Our online doctors commonly treat sinus infections, UTIs, strep throat, upper respiratory infections, ear infections, certain STDs (chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis), dental infections, staph infections, and many more.
Antibiotics only treat bacterial infections, meaning they are no good for treating viral or fungal infections. The doctor will be able to diagnose your infection as bacterial based on your symptoms, medical history and the length of infection. If they are unable to comfortably diagnose your infection they will write you a lab referral for testing. Once your results are in they will prescribe you an appropriate treatment plan, including any necessary antibiotics.
The length of antibiotic treatment and the dosage will depend on the type of infection you have. Typically antibiotics are prescribed for 7 to 14 days.
Antibiotics are fast acting, some people feel symptom relief in a matter of hours. Generally you should start to feel better within 48 hours. If your symptoms get worse or do not improve within 48 hours it is likely you are not suffering from a bacterial infection. You should see the doctor for follow up treatment.
Each antibiotic will have different side effects. Generally the most common side effect of antibiotics is an upset stomach. Many antibiotics are recommended to be taken with food to avoid this. Certain antibiotics may make you tired. Ask your doctor about the side effects of your prescription and how to best avoid them.
You’ve probably heard the term “antibiotic resistance” before. It is referring to bacteria that have become immune to certain types of antibiotic treatment due to previous exposure. To avoid antibiotic resistance is it important to complete your prescribed antibiotic treatment to ensure all the bacteria are killed. You should also only take antibiotics when you have a bacterial infection. Read more here.
