Can I use my 6 month old amoxicylin ?

Im pretty sure I have a UTI from retention and I don't want to have to go through the hassle of going to the doctor. I was prescribed anti biotics 6 months ago For a respiratory infection I didn't use them because I am against using anti biotics (creates bacterial immunity). Unfortunately apparently UTI's can't be self treated and I need to take anti biotics I know for men the dosage is 2 a day for 7-14 days. So basically would the anti biotics I already have work or does the fungus die if not used within a certain time

    You should never use medication that has been prescribed for something else. Certain infections need certain antibiotics.Six month old amoxycillin is too old to use anyways. You need to discard it and go to your doctor to be prescribed an appropriate antibiotic.
