Quoting ❥ Meℓi:" I started taking it Friday. I am taking Cipro, ear drops & the pills. Ear drops 3 times a day & the pill twice a day."
If you have an ear infection & the antibiotics aren't working after two days, I'd go back. I have had chronic ear infections (2-4 a year) since I was a kid. They always try to give me amox, but I always end up having to go back for something else. Ask your doctor about Keflex... that stuff works for me EVERY TIME.
And if you're ears are so swollen shut that you can't get the medicine inside properly, you may need a wick inserted (it's a like a candle wick... they lube it & push it into the ear so that the medicine can travel down into the canal. It gets taken out once the swelling comes down).
Good luck! I know it's not fun
