Benefits of BID vs TID?
So for educational purposes I would like to know which one would be better, amoxicillin twice a day or 3 times a day.
The question is saying This is for a 7 year old child that is 50 pounds.
50mg/kg/day so 1250mg/7.5ml in equal BID doses. What is the advantages of giving the child 3 doses a day over 2 or even 1 doses a day.

Depends on what is being treated. High dose amox at BID is fine for strep as the bacteria is very sensitive to amox. If it was a more complex infection, such as pneumonia, the doc may want TID dosing; however BID dosing is often better tolerated, and if it works, its easier to give.
