Dicloxacillin Dose for UTI
Dicloxacillin is a prescription antibiotic used to treat a variety of bacterial infections, including a urinary tract infection (UTI). When using dicloxacillin, the specific dose your healthcare provider prescribes will vary, depending on several factors, such as:
- Your age
- Your weight (for children)
- The type and severity of the infection being treated.
Dicloxacillin comes as a capsule and is usually taken every six hours. The medication is typically best absorbed when taken on an empty stomach. Usually, treatment is continued for at least two days after all signs and symptoms of the infection are gone.
