My LLMD has me on 1000MG amoxicillin THREE times daily, so no its not too much.

I have had no negative side effects from this, and my digestive system has had no problems while being on this.

I have heard of people taking 4,000MG of amoxy a day, so dont worry.

Before they changed the pre-med guidelines for MVP,and heart murmurs , we always did 2000 mg.

Whats inportant is how much stays in your blood level and they try to keep this consistant.

Yeah, I have no idea how long amoxy stays in the blood stream? I try to take mine every day at 1 p.m. 7 p.m. and 1 a.m. before bed.

Seems to be helping me though.
