Brief Answer:
You can use it

Detailed Answer:
Hi...You can use it. If the expiry date and the brand name the doctor has prescribed are suiting then you can use it. A single word of caution is that Clavam Bid comes in 2 strengths. You need to see whether your doctor has written it as 228mg/5ml strength or 457mg/5ml strength. Accordingly you can use it please.

Other option is if your pediatrician has not mentioned the strength, send me over the weight of your kid and the indication which made the pediatrician prescribe an antibiotic, I will suggest you what is to be done along with a brand name.

Your location is not being reflected here, so I do not know in which part of the world you are asking me this. So please send your city name too.
