hi,thanks for query.The tablet is safe and can be taken,but important thing is that you should not give any antibiotic without advise from your doctor.This is a potent drug and must not be used at your will.Please do not give.Duration of treatment depends upon the severity of infection which normally 5-7 days for general infection.
wishing you good health.
