Swollen arm, megaclox dosage

I have a swollen arm due to a blister that got enlarged. Was recommended to take Megaclox for three I take it after a meal (on top of food) or without food? Usually I take antibiotics after food, but I saw on one site that it said to take it on an empty stomach??? I am hoping this will rectify the infection without having to go through any lancing. Thank you kindly. Sundaram

This anti biotic is prescribed for infections.
CLOXACILLIN is best absorbed when taken 1/2 to 1 hour before meals.
It is generally taken four times a day.
Take your course of this antibiotic as prescribed by your doctor and don't leave the treatment in between.
pray to the god that your infection gets controlled with the antibiotic otherwise you would need the lancing.
