Any pharmacists out there?

Two quick Qs about Amoxicillin. I'm giving 5mo dd 125mg/5ml x3 daily;

* what the effing Jeff is in that shiz? It's so nuclear yellow it actually stains her lips and gums as it goes in

* why can't I give her 125mg/2.5ml? It's such a huge volume of liquid for such a small child. As she's ebf she doesn't get the different texture or flab our and it takes about 20nins to get only about 85% in (the rest being mopped up be wipes and her clothes).

Hi Busy, is the number for the pharmacy on the prescription?
Might be worth giving them a ring.

Actually I hadn't even considers that... I'll call them tomorrow
