I have contracted a lung infection, until I got home, I realised the dosage for my antibiotics is 2 x 500mg per day. Is this not too much, it is a generic broadspectrum antibiotic?

Thank you for visiting

The dosage does not sound too high. A dosage will depend on the severity of an infection, as well as the type of antibiotic that you are using. Therefore, please be so kind as to reply with the name of the antibiotic, in order for me to provide you with a detailed/more spesific reply.

Kind regards
